Rail supplier updates from Cleveland Track and Harsco (Nov.19)


Vossloh's Cleveland Track Material Inc. will deliver five guarded, tangential geometry, double crossovers with 39- to 41-foot track centers on low vibration concrete tie blocks for the 2nd Avenue and 7 Line Extension projects in New York City. The 2nd Avenue project is slated to begin next year with the same low vibration technology, according to a Vossloh press release. Cleveland Track Material also is in the process of retrofitting an existing double crossover for the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority.

Harsco Corp. announced the resignation of Stephen Schnoor as senior vice president, chief financial officer and treasurer, effective Nov. 16. Barry Malamud, who currently serves as vice president and corporate controller, has been named interim CFO. He will assume the responsibilities of principal financial officer until a permanent CFO has been selected, Harsco officials said in a prepared statement. President and Chief Executive Officer Patrick Decker expressed gratitude for Schnoor's contributions to the company's long-term financial stability, but that it also "is time to move forward under new leadership in this area as we shape the course of our renewed vision for Harsco."
