Axion receives third order from Miami-Dade Transit

Axion International Holdings, Inc., received its third purchase order for ECOTRAX crossties for Miami-Dade Transit, through a sale made by Eastern Rail Corporation, a distribution partner of AXION.

Eastern Rail is a provider of transit products to Miami-Dade Transit and other private and public rail systems.

Miami-Dade Transit's Metrorail, which serves Miami-Dade County in Florida, has already installed and is using ECOTRAX ties received in two prior orders throughout its 24.4-mile elevated rapid transit system.

Axion has sold ECOTRAX ties to Eastern Rail Corporation for Miami-Dade Transit that range in size from 8.5-feet to 18-feet in length. This most recent purchase order increases Miami-Dade Transit's purchase of ECTORAX to approximately 2,000 ties representing approximately on million pounds of plastic being recycled and diverted from landfills.
