25 million railroad ties are replaced each year in North America by harvesting hardwood trees and soaking in poisonous creosote and borate.
As strong as wood, consistently manufactured, and delivering value for the engineered performance. Every tie, every time.
New approaches to drive speed and confidence into capital decision-making, for both long AND short term capital decisions.
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.
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.
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
MOR equivalent to hardwood; strong enough for the long haul on all North American freight and transit railroads
Manufactured with 100% recycled polyolefin plastic and fiberglass; the same tie a million times over
Installs with wood tie equipment; no special tooling; improves OR
Evertrak 7000 is the first composite tie for North American heavy haul and transit railroads made with glass fiber reinforced 100% recycled polyolefin plastic. Made to perform for decades of rail traffic in any environmental condition, Evertrak 7000 changes the paradigm for capital renewal of track by eliminating tie cycles. Evertrak 7000 is available now in lengths from 8’6” to 10′.
We left military service deeply grateful for our country and the opportunity that service gave us to form our character and career. We decided to create a company that reflects the values of our service. Most important to us is how we treat people – each other, our teammates, partners and even competitors.
