Industries

Locomotives and Rail Cars

While many focus on the slowing coal output as an indicator of serious trouble for railway transportation, the truth is that the industry is experiencing good (some say robust) financial health. A major consideration is the ability of railroad companies to improve their efficiencies, with many targeted to achieve operating ratios of 60% in the next few years.

Inductotherm Group customers around the world are commercially engaged with the rail industry in dozens of ways, not only with the production of metals that then require transport but also with the manufacture of thousands of tons of parts for both railway cars of every description and for railway infrastructure as well.
