Rail supplier news from Simmons, BAI and FMW Solutions (June 28)


Simmons Machine Tool Corp. and Hegenscheidt-MFD Corp. have been partner companies within the NSH Group since 2001. Simmons designs and manufactures precision machines and automation systems for railway wheel set maintenance and production, while Hegenscheidt-MFD Corp. provides technical support, service and tooling for the company’s deep rolling crankshaft products in North America. To better serve its customers, Simmons is acquiring Hegenscheidt-MFD Corp. to bring the companies together. The new entity is NSH USA Corp.

BAI Communications (BAI), a global communications infrastructure provider, has agreed to acquire Mobilitie, a privately held telecommunications infrastructure company. The acquisition represents a major expansion of BAI's business in North America where it provides cellular and Wi-Fi connectivity across large infrastructure projects — including the New York City subway system — under its majority owned business Transit Wireless, according to a BAI press release.

The Railroaders Memorial Museum has named FMW Solutions LLC as its strategic partner in the restoration of Pennsylvania Railroad K4s-class locomotive No. 1361. FMW Solutions will oversee the day-to-day restoration efforts of the museum’s national icon and assist in strategic planning for the eventual operation of the attraction. Projections indicate the restoration will cost in excess of $2 million. Initial fundraising efforts are being led by railroad preservation advocate Wick Moorman.
