About Plasser American Corporation
In 1957, the first Plasser & Theurer machine was delivered in the U.S. to the Louisville & Nashville Railroad Company. During the first few years, most machines supplied were used in the Eastern U.S., therefore the customer service center was located in New Jersey until 1960.
In 1961, Plasser Railway Maintenance Corporation was founded in Rockford, Illinois, to support machines that were being delivered in the mid-west and western U.S.
From 1968, with the introduction of the first machine in compact design, the sales volume rose dramatically. Compared with 115 machines sold during the first ten years, sales rose to 790 in the next ten years.
During the mid-1960’s, our company was renamed Plasser American Corporation and in 1970, the plant was relocated to the East Coast in Chesapeake, Virginia.
From a small operation with five employees in 1960, we are now more than 200 employees headquartered in a modern 150,000+ square foot facility.
We are actively engaged in all sectors of research, design, production, marketing and customer service to provide Plasser know-how and standard of quality for our customers. Our capacity is not only sufficient to build all machines f...or the national market, but also to produce for export.
The 09 DYNA-C.A.T. was developed as a combination switch/production tamping machine with dynamic track stabilization. The PTS 61 C was developed as a combination dynamic track stabilizer and catenary measuring system. Catenary maintenance and installation is performed efficiently with the Plasser MTW 100 Catenary Maintenance Vehicle and RT 10 Wire Reel Trailer.
Our high capacity ballast cleaning machines provide customers properly drained ballast sections for longer track life and extended maintenance cycles. The APT 600 S Super- Stretch Welder, with an integrated pulling device for flash-butt rail welding, is ideally suited for North American track conditions.
Spare parts service, technical support, contracting and training complete the program offered by Plasser American Corporation.
