Harsco awarded international track equipment orders

Written by 

Harsco Corporation received international orders for its railway track maintenance rail grinders totaling more than $20 million, including the company's first rail equipment order from South Korea and its first larger-capacity 30-stone rail grinder sale into China's urban metro transit market.

The orders are for delivery beginning this year into and extending into early 2014.

The South Korea order comes from Sampyo Engineering & Construction (SENC) and the metro order came from China's Ningbo Rail Transit Group Co. Ltd.

The orders also include a rail grinder sale into the UK rail network, where Harsco has been operating similar equipment under contract for the past 10 years. The latest order will expand the in-country fleet of machines operated by Harsco in support of rail maintenance throughout the UK.
