Rhomberg Sersa Rail Canada Has Been Awarded The CARS 2022 Innovation Award

Published on November 24, 2022



[Ottawa, November 24th, 2022]. The Canadian Association of Railway Suppliers (CARS) has named Rhomberg Sersa Rail Canada as one of the winners of the 2022 Innovation Awards. This award is for members that have developed advanced or innovative technologies to meet the needs of the rail industry.

“We worked with LINSINGER to build a specifically adapted rail-bound “SF02T-FS” milling train specifically to suit Canadian requirements. We are proud to be the first company to introduce this innovative rail milling technology, not only to Canada but to the entire North American market. Our first milling unit landed in Toronto in the late months of 2018 and Rhomberg Sersa has not stopped milling since then on metro, LRT and commuter lines throughout Canada.” - Michael Match, CEO, Rhomberg Sersa North America Inc.

“We were thrilled when we received nominations for Rhomberg Sersa to receive the innovation award. The Railway Supplier community has recognized them for their innovative work, and we are happy to reinforce this recognition.” – Sylvia Newell, President, CARS.

By introducing the milling technology to the Canadian market, Rhomberg Sersa has set a new standard for corrective and preventive rail maintenance with this innovative milling technology. By applying rail milling as an integrated maintenance concept, it is possible to significantly extend the life of the asset rail by eliminating RCF, corrugation and other rail flaws while at the same time reducing costs.
