Vertex Railcar Corp. has officially launched its updated website, at www.vertexrail.com.

The site adds additional features including a category of specialty cars, videos of special unload designs, and new pictures.

The site launch complements the new 500,000-square-foot manufacturing facility on 68 acres operated by Vertex in Wilmington, N.C., which has the capacity to produce approximately 8,000 railcars per year. 3D models of railcars can be seen here.

Vertex also builds special patented gate designs on their aggregate and hopper cars to allow very rapid discharge with little or no “on track” maintenance once unloading is complete. See videos here.

Vertex at its AAR-certified facility also offers a DOT111 replacement program to retrofit tank cars under the new DOT117 requirements.
