Fairbanks Morse Engine, National Rail Equipment drop locomotive-engine part distribution deal


Fairbanks Morse Engine and National Rail Equipment Co. (NREC) recently agreed to end a FM/ALCO locomotive-engine spare parts distribution agreement.

Fairbanks Morse will assume responsibility for all diesel engine part sales to the locomotive industry, which NREC previously served. NREC no longer be an authorized spare-parts distributor for Fairbanks Morse, but will continue to be a customer.

“We look forward to continued business with NREC, while at the same time expanding our presence by directly supporting the global population of FM/ALCO engines in the locomotive industry through in-house parts manufacturing, training and service,” said Fairbanks Morse President Tony Gioffredi in a prepared statement.

Since acquiring the ALCO diesel engine design from GE – Transportation in 1994, Fairbanks Morse has manufactured FM/ALCO diesel engines and original equipment manufacturer parts for the locomotive, marine and stationary power markets.
