Rail supplier news from AITX and Humatics (July 26)


AITX Railcar Services is expanding in Brookhaven, Mississippi. The $23.4 million project will create 75 jobs. AITX chose to expand its Brookhaven location due to the availability of land at the company’s site and direct service from CN. The expansion will allow for a full range of services, including coatings and heavy repair. The Mississippi Development Authority is providing assistance for the extension of a rail spur, according to an AITX press release.

Humatics has been awarded a contract with partner Siemens worth $14 million by the Metropolitan Transit Authority to develop an interoperable ultra wideband (UWB) solution over the course of 14.5 months. The work expands on a 2019 pilot project that determined the effectiveness of using UWB in conjunction with communications based train-control systems. This scope of work will deliver an interoperable UWB specification enabling competition, expanding the UWB ecosystem and building the foundation for UWB to be used in revenue service in New York City, according to a company press release.
