Locomotive electrical components provider Ekyrail Enterprises has announced that Yan Taillon will serve as the company’s new president.
A 20-year-plus industry veteran, Taillon succeeds his father, Christian, as Ekyrail’s head. The two founded the company in 2010.
The Chateauguay, Quebec-based company—which just expanded its manufacturing facilities by 15,000 square feet—said it intends to expand its reach “by developing new, innovative products for the rail industry.”
“Our objective is really to redefine all existing products. We want to usher in 2019 by developing essential products for all locomotives,” Taillon said.
