Blastech Rail Services has continued to expand their facility and our skilled craftspeople to meet customers’ demands for a fast turnaround of the requalification process including inspections, repairs and complete relines. Being the only AAR certified tank car facility in Canada, that performs rubber lining work, our experienced lining department can perform lining repairs or full replacement of both liquid and sheet linings to the industry’s highest standards.
We recently started an expansion project that will consist of 3 phases. The first phase has been completed and we have added more than a 1,000 feet of track to our site which now provides more tank car spots for our customers. We are planning to expand even further by adding more track, a second transfer table and a return line for completed cars. We have also invested in a Robotic Stripping Machine for the removal of old rubber linings. This will be an integral part of maintaining speedy turn times while providing a safe environment for this type of work. We anticipate commissioning of the unit by the fourth quarter of this year.
We are active members of NACE and AMPP. Our coatings and linings are applied to meet or exceed recognized international and customer’s standards of surface preparation and application.
Our safety vision is directed by our President and senior executives and we are dedicated to maintaining the health and safety of our employees, subcontractors, customers and the public.
