EWI-Holland-HDR-Onsite-Rail-Repair

The EWI Rail Manufacturing Technology Center was founded in 2009 to improve the reliability and sustainability of our nation’s rail networks and increasing the manufacturing competitiveness of the U.S. railroad industry.

With nearly 30 years of EWI’s experience with rail repair technologies behind it, the Center is bringing manufacturing innovation to the rail sector. It is working to develop, mature, and commercialize materials joining technologies that will improve manufacturing affordability for railroad stakeholders, build public-private partnerships, and foster industry-wide collaboration.

All organizations with a vested interest in the U.S. rail industry can benefit from getting involved with the EWI Rail Manufacturing Technology Center. This includes railroads, railroad suppliers, maintenance-of-way service providers, track service providers, fleet managers, locomotive manufacturers, railcar manufacturers, truck and wheel manufacturers and repair/refurbishment shops, and federal and state rail/ transportation agencies.
