Written by 

Dapco Technologies, a service arm of Ridgefield, Conn.-based Dapco Industries, has been renamed Nordco Rail Services to emphasize the company’s role in both rail diagnostic services and engineering. The company also announced a new president, Chris Smitka, and has relocated to a new facility in Lee’s Summit, Mo.

In a statement, Smitka said, “While we are a separate entity, the name change underscores our affiliation with the highly regarded Nordco companies and their emphasis on superior quality and service. I believe we have the best people and the right resources to be the premier provider of rail flaw detection services in the industry.

“We are also fortunate to have the ability to leverage Nordco’s tremendous industryknowledge and customer support, and will continue to utilize the cutting edge technology developed by our sister company Dapco Industries,” Smitka said.

Both Nordco Rail Services and Dapco Industries are owned by Oak Creek, Wis.-based Nordco Inc.
