Agreement reached between railway service providers to align operations for long-term growth.
VANCOUVER, BC – National rail contractor, Remcan Projects LP. (Remcan), announced today that it has partnered with the Canadian division of Rhomberg Sersa Rail Group, Sersa Total Track (STT), to extend its capabilities, expertise, and infrastructure across Canada.
The partnership provides Remcan with STT’s established rail maintenance and renewal operations in Central and Eastern Canada, including the acquisition of maintenance equipment and staff. In order to manage the new operations and transition key STT employees to the team, Remcan will be retaining STT’s location in Mallorytown as a second branch in Ontario.
“Our new partnership is bringing together the resources and focus of two of the market leading rail service providers in North America,” explains John Thwaites, CEO of Remcan Projects, LP. “This is another progressive step in the growth of Remcan and a great opportunity to work with the Rhomberg Sersa team as we roll out and expand our service offering.”
With Remcan deepening and expanding its maintenance of way and specialty services, STT will be realigning its service offering and expanding its fleet of high production equipment to focus on sophisticated undercutting and grinding services. This approach is directly aligned with the proven success of parent company, Rhomberg Sersa Rail Group, a market leading international railway engineering service provider.
“We look forward to bringing our international expertise and solution-based approach to the North American rail market,” adds Michael Match, CEO of Sersa Total Track. “By focusing on what each party does best and working together, Remcan and Sersa will be able to offer a complete turnkey solution to all railway clients across North America.”
The partnership positions both companies on a dynamic growth path to jointly deliver significant urban capital rail projects currently planned for the Toronto, Ottawa, and Montreal regions. The agreement between Remcan Projects and Sersa Total Track was effective November 10, 2017.
