Global Railway to produce Rafna's rail gears in Pennsylvania instead of Quebec

Today, Global Railway Industries Ltd. announced it will relocate Rafna Industries Ltd.’s manufacturing operations from Baie D' Urfe, Quebec, to Berwick, Pa. Global Railway subsidiary G&B Specialties Inc. will manufacture Rafna-branded rail-gear products in Berwick.

G&B Specialties will maintain Rafna’s Canadian sales and service offices in Calgary, Alberta, and Montreal.

“Combining the manufacturing into one facility allows G&B to optimize its production planning and mitigate the seasonal factors associated with the rail-gear market," said Global Railway Chief Executive Officer Mike Kohut in a prepared statement. “There will be no disruption in the supply and service of rail-gear units as a result of this consolidation.”

Global Railway markets various railway equipment and supplies in North America.
