Chemco has officially announced the launch of Chemco Railway Civil Construction and Maintenance. Also known as Chemco Rail, this new division of the business will provide the railway industry with high quality subcontractors to successfully build and maintain railway projects and facilities across the country.
Based out of the company’s corporate office in Nisku, Alberta, Chemco Rail will also work with clients from its regional office in Kamloops, B.C. and satellite offices in Prince George and Kitimat, B.C.
Backed by Chemco’s 50 years of experience in construction and maintenance project management, the company says Chemco Rail will have “the ability to deliver full scale civil construction projects that are varied in scope and complexity.”
“We are proud of our track record working in highly specialized verticals that supplement industrial construction,” said Todd Halina, Chemco’s COO. “We are pleased to add railway civil construction and maintenance to our stable of specialties that already include fiber optics, electrical engineering, hydrovac, horizontal drilling, and more.”
Chemco Rail will use its line of specialized equipment to assist with maintenance work including boom trucks, hytrackers, loaders and snow plow trucks. The company offers the railway industry a variety of earth moving equipment including excavators, dozers and rock trucks to support railways in quickly reopening important rail corridors.
