Industry-Railway Suppliers (IRS) has signed an official agreement with Milwaukee® becoming an authorized distributor of Milwaukee tools to the railroad industry.
Milwaukee Tool is a respected worldwide leader in the power tool industry because they have remained steadfast in their mission to deliver products that provide both increased durability and increased productivity, no matter the job or the trade.
“We are ecstatic to offer the railroad industry a large line of Milwaukee battery-powered tools, and for the future development of specialized rail products with a world-class partner aimed toward achieving customer safety, ergonomic and sustainability goals,” said Scott Commo, President, Industry-Railway Suppliers.
Milwaukee Tool brings a large line of maintenance-of-way solutions to IRS and the railroad industry including both cordless and corded heavy-duty power tools, hand tools, job kits, lighting, safety products, and accessories. Not only that, but Milwaukee Tool also brings a wealth of knowledge and experience from the power tool industry to the railroad industry. They have been working side by side with end users for decades to understand the demands of the ever-changing workplace, allowing them to deliver solutions for a safer and more efficient jobsite.
This lays the grounds for a strong partnership between Industry-Railway Suppliers and Milwaukee Tool. IRS has over 50 years of railroad industry knowledge, and field support who have worked side by side with railroad-maintenance personnel for decades to understand their needs and in turn, develop solutions. This partnership will enable IRS to provide the railroad market with even more specialized railroad tools increasing the efficiency of maintenance-of-way operations throughout North America.
“Continued success for both Industry-Railway Suppliers and Milwaukee will be generated by our relentless effort to provide solutions to the rail industry that deliver upon user needs for greater productivity, durability, and safety,” said Glenn Wade, Director of Sales, Milwaukee Tool.
Our new line of no-emission Milwaukee battery-powered tools not only brings more safety by less cords to railroad worksites, but will continue to support the sustainability mission of rail being the most environmentally-friendly mode of ground transportation.
