CN, NorFalco sign long-term pact to move sulphuric acid


CN and NorFalco Sales have signed a new multiyear agreement that will provide freight transportation of sulphuric acid from NorFalco's rail-served production facilities in Sudbury, Ontario, and Rouyn-Noranda and Valleyfield, Quebec.

The agreement furthers CN's strategic partnership with NorFalco by reaching new facilities throughout eastern Canada, CN President and Chief Executive Officer JJ Ruest said in a press release.

"Safety is a core value at CN as it is for NorFalco, and NorFalco has consistently won CN’s Safe Handling Award recognizing customers that meet strict standards for the safe handling and shipment of regulated products," Ruest said. "CN will continue working closely with NorFalco thanks to this renewed long-term partnership."

NorFalco CEO Kunal Sinha said the CN agreement will also help his company expand strategically.

"This agreement provides NorFalco, and our customers, with a reliable rail transportation infrastructure, underpinned with a shared commitment to safety in handling and moving our product throughout our diversified customer base,” said Sinha. "We anticipate this agreement will further our strategic growth supported with manageable transportation costs."

A division of Glencore Canada Corp., NorFalco is one of the largest merchant marketers of sulfuric acid in North America. The company markets and distributes about 2 million tons of sulfuric acid per year.
