Transportation and Railroad Parts
Cities and towns with dense populations are investing in train and light rail services to provide efficient mass transit. We help meet this growing demand by working closely with transit and freight manufacturers to deliver important improvements in weight, ride comfort, performance, and reliability.
Better Suspension for a Quiet and Safe Ride
Creating larger, faster, and more complex mass transit and freight systems demand improved suspension products. We are committed to delivering components to your facilities on time every time. Light rail systems require specific springs and assemblies that offer high-speed performance that is safe, quiet, and comfortable. We’ve built and nurtured strong relationships with pioneering transit and freight manufacturers who trust our ability to deliver a strong, light, and reliable system.
