ARS breaks ground on new headquarters.

Advanced Rail Systems, ARS, recently hosted the Ground Breaking Ceremony for a new international headquarters on Friday, September 11, 2020. The 20-acre campus, located near Waco TX, will accommodate all administrative and manufacturing needs as well as a state-of-the-art training facility.

ARS, an M-1003 certified Railroad and Transit supplier, manufactures yard, high-speed, and mainline switch machines.  The machines require zero maintenance, are trailable without damage and are powered by a 12 VDC battery.  This allows solar charging to provide power to the machines, simplifying automation of yards and operations. From simple push button switch machines, to full yard automation, ARS has the industry-leading solutions to increase safety and improve efficiency.

The new facility allows for future expansion and is located in an Opportunity Zone supporting investments in disadvantaged areas.
