Axion International Holdings, Inc., producer of ECOTRAX® composite rail ties and STRUXURE® building products, has received an order worth $925,000 from “a major domestic transit line located in the South Central region” of the U.S.

Axion says ECOTRAX® composite rail ties were chosen by the transit system to be used for an annual spot replacement of rotted wooden ties. The purchase order will be issued to support two install projects, with the second phase purchase order to be finalized by the first week of January.

“We continue to demonstrate that ECOTRAX® delivers great value to our customers and the rail industry,” said Cory Burdick, AXION’s ECOTRAX® sales manager. “Rail operators are actively seeking alternatives to address the increasingly expensive maintenance and replacement issues associated with wooden ties and ECOTRAX® provides them with a solution on a global scale. Over the past two years, we have expanded our business worldwide and continue to produce a very consistent-quality product, which is being recognized by both existing and new customers.”
