CTM’s speciality trackwork portfolio, which includes panelized turnouts and crossings, special trackwork assemblies, switch points, frogs and crossing diamonds, brace and plating systems, rail joints and guard rails, “will complement Progress Rail’s current trackwork products,” said Progress Rail Executive Vice President Infrastructure John Newman. “We look forward to welcoming the CTM employees into the Progress Rail family. This acquisition allows Progress Rail to more-efficiently meet the needs of our North American rail customers by broadening our portfolio of best-in-class infrastructure solutions and positioning our trackwork team to better-serve both Class I railroads and transit sector.”

The transaction is anticipated to close in early November.
