|Regional Rail LLC acquires Conshohocken Recycling & Rail Transfer LLC, Conshohocken, Pa.|
The transportation holding company Regional Rail LLC has acquired a construction and demolition transfer station located in Conshohocken, Pa., which is rail served. Conshohocken Recycling & Rail Transfer LLC (CRRT), was formerly known as Conshohocken Rail. The company is a high-throughput transfer station with dual inbound and outbound truck scales, a 25,000 square-foot transfer building, and is located on a 12 acre site.
According to Regional Rail, the design and operation of the facility provides CCRT customers with the fastest possible turn times for trucks delivering material to the facility. CRRT also owns and operates a fleet of 81 recently refurbished high-capacity gondola cars for transporting the unrecyclable portion of the C&D waste stream from the greater Philadelphia area to rail-served landfills.
Commenting on the new acquisition, Bob Parker, Regional Rail’s president, says, “This acquisition illustrates Regional Rail LLC’s intent to look at rail-related entities and operations in addition to the traditional short line deals”.
Vice President Al Sauer adds, “The recycling business in general has continued to grow despite the lackluster economy and continued housing slowdown and we feel this facility is ideally located to serve this market both now and in the future.”
Regional Rail, headquartered in Kennett Square, Pa., also is the parent company of East Penn Railroad LLC Middletown & New Jersey Railroad LLC and Tyburn Railroad LLC.
