Pandrol signed multi-year distributor partnership agreements with Industry-Railway Suppliers, Inc. (IRS), in the United States and Davanac, Inc., in Canada.

Pandrol says the agreements will involve IRS and Davanac distributing Railtech Matweld hydraulic tools and Rosenqvist rail equipment. In addition to the distribution agreement, IRS will act as a sales agent for Pandrol's equipment and welding products in the U.S. in a move designed the companies say will enhance customer service.

Breen Reardon, Pandrol's president for North America, said, "We selected IRS and Davanac as our partners due to our shared values in terms of quality of service, combined with the fact they are long established and highly reputable in the industry. We are excited about what this means for the service to our customers and the growth of our business in North America and Canada."

"Our goal is to provide safe, high quality, cost-effective product solutions combined with unrivalled customer service and field sales support," said Scott Commo, president of Industry-Railway Suppliers. "By representing the Rosenqvist, Matweld and Railtech product ranges, we build on our core strengths and enhance our product-mix through Pandrol's well-established portfolio of products."

Erika Berg, managing director at Rosenqvist Rail, said the agreements will allow the company to strengthen its brand, as well as its ability to supply and support its products in the North American market.
