Portec Rail Products, Inc. Company Profile

Portec Rail Products previously kept railroads on track since 1906. The company manufactured and distributed a slew of rail products. Friction Management, its largest line, specialized in products and services that controlled friction between the wheel and rail, a key problem for customers. The Wayside Data Collection and Data Management Systems unit provided measurement and detection products, services, and support for improved equipment usage. Securement Systems helped secure freight onto cars, and Track Components made rail anchors and track spikes. Rival L. B. Foster acquired Portec Rail for $113 million in late 2010 and eventually integrated it into its portfolio of rail brands.
