IRS and WVCO met in September for a day of product testing.

Elmhurst, IL-Effective Oct. 2018, Industry-Railway Suppliers (IRS) has entered an additional partnership with Willamette Valley Company (WVCO.) While the companies have been partners for 16 years, this new agreement makes IRS the largest distributor of FastPatch systems to the railroad industry.

“Our goal is to provide North American customers with safe, high quality products that equal low total cost of ownership,” said Scott Commo, president of IRS.

FastPatch advances an innovative solution to permanently repair and quickly return-to-service important infrastructures like railroad grade crossings, roadways, airports, and facilities. The product offers simple installation with easy-to-use kits for a wide range of pavement preservation applications. Both companies met at the IRS Elmhurst, IL headquarters in September for a day of product testing and networking for the new collaboration.

“Partnering with IRS has proven to be a success due to their great relationships in the railroad industry,” said Rob Loomis, business manager at WVCO, “We are excited about this partnership knowing that our brand is well represented and that more railroad customers will have access to these solutions.”
