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