On Tuesday, October 6th 2015, ARS Canadian Rolling Stock Inc. closed on its rail car manufacturing facility in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada. It is a partnership with CRRC Meishan (CRRC-MS) the merged company of CSR (China Southern Railway) and CNR (China Northern Railway). CRRC is the largest freight car manufacturer in the world and is also building the Boston Subway. DJ Thibodeau and Associates Inc. is an official agent for freight cars sales in North America. Positioned as a boutique operation, ARS Canadian Rolling Stock Inc. has the capability to produce tank cars, hopper cars, and flat cars as well as many specialized cars such as log and chip cars.
Rail cars typically have a life expectancy of 50 years, and many cars are now coming into their prime. Anything that was built in 1964-1969 is quickly approaching the end of its life. While it is possible to garner a special waiver to extend the life of a rail car another ten years, it typically also comes with hefty repairs and maintenance.
We can help! Our new manufacturing facility is located in Moncton, NB, which puts us in prime location as a supplier to all of North America. Our railcars are Canadian made, and priced out according to your unique railcar specifications. Feel free to call us at 1 506 206 0817 to obtain a quote for your new railcar requirements.
