The Problem

Ineffective Status Quo

25 million railroad ties are replaced each year in North America by harvesting hardwood trees and soaking in poisonous creosote and borate.

The Solution

Evertrak 7000

As strong as wood, consistently manufactured, and delivering value for the engineered performance. Every tie, every time.

The Future

Business Model Innovations

New approaches to drive speed and confidence into capital decision-making, for both long AND short term capital decisions.

Solving a Problem That Runs 140,000 Miles Long

While we’ve advanced from paper to aluminum to carbon fiber to make airplanes, we still make railroad ties by chopping down trees.   The only innovation in 150 years is treating ties with poisonous creosote.
1800s Technology at Work Today

No Change in the Status Quo

25-million railroad ties are replaced each year in North America. Hardwood ties are failing in track at less than their economic life due to weather, wear, and insect infestation.

Poor and Unproven Substitutes

Failed Innovation

In the past, poor engineering, inconsistent feedstocks and manufacturing quality resulted in failure modes that could not be controlled. Industry lost faith in finding an alternative to wood…until now. A true composite that is beyond wood.

Capital Contraints

Total Cost of Ownership Advantage

Long-term costs savings cannot be captured through increase in short-term investment. Future Total Cost of Ownership (TCOO) requires new modes of long-term, performance-based financing

Disruption was inevitable, and it has arrived

We are a veteran-owned business

We left military service deeply grateful for our country and the opportunity that service gave us to form our character and career.
