The Problem

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.

The Solution

Evertrak 7000

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

The Future

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 in airplanes, we still make railroad ties by chopping down trees – little real innovation since the 1800s
1800s Tech Still at Work Today

Change the status quo

25-million railroad ties are replaced each year in North America. Hardwood ties are failing in track at less than their economic life due to weather, wear, and insect infestation.

Poor and Unproven Substitutes

Past Attempts at Innovation

In the past, poor engineering, inconsistent feedstocks and manufacturing quality resulted in failure modes that could not be controlled. Industry lost faith in finding an alternative to wood…until now. A true composite that is beyond wood.

Capital Contraints

A New Cost Model is Needed

Long-term costs savings cannot be captured through increase in short-term investment. Future Total Cost of Ownership (TCOO) requires new modes of long-term, performance-based financing

Disruption was inevitable, and it has arrived
