nVent ERICO offers a full range of electrical connection, grounding and surge protection solutions for railroad tracks. Our legacy in rail dates back to 1903 with the establishment of the Electric Railway Improvement Company (ERICO), and were an integral supplier of power bonds, signal bonds and related welding equipment to North American railroads. ERICO would go on to make significant contributions in this field with products such as Cadweld, a revolutionary system that simplified the process for making exothermically welded cable-to-rail (or cable-to-cable) connections on track. Cadweld, and many other products pioneered by ERICO, are now rail industry standards. Today, nVent ERICO serves global railways with manufacturing operations in several key regions throughout the world. As nVent, we are committed to making railway networks safer and more reliable, and will continue to be the go-to provider of niche rail connection, surge protection, and switch heating solutions with our comprehensive nVent ERICO product line.
