Jennmar to become US underground coal rail and tie component leader

Jennmar, a subsidiary of Frank Calandra Inc, says it has acquired the Vossloh track, tie and rail accessory inventory from Atlantic Track.

Along with the entire mining inventory, Jennmar has purchased all machinery necessary to support Vossloh’s current mining business consisting of rail, tie and rail straightening capabilities, it said.

Tony Calandra, Group President of Frank Calandra Inc and Calandra Group LLC, said the acquisition made Jennmar the “premier provider” of rail and tie components for the underground coal market in the USA.

Michael Calandra, Executive Vice President of Frank Calandra Inc, said Jennmar will continue to offer the same services with enhanced resources and capabilities.

“This will not affect or delay any current business. We will honour all existing POs that were issued to Vossloh Track Materials prior to January 1, 2020,” he added.
