TÜVRheinland acquires Rail Sciences Inc.

Posted on July 8, 2010

TÜVRheinland acquired Rail Sciences Inc. (RSI), a rail industry consulting firm and train dynamics specialist headquartered in Atlanta, Ga. with an advanced testing and metallurgical analysis laboratory in Omaha, Neb.

"Because of its service portfolio, industry reputation, and broad client base in the rail and non-rail fields, RSI is a great strategic fit for TÜVRheinland's Guided Transport Systems business both domestically and internationally. There is currently no other firm in the U.S. or Canada that can match RSI's expertise," said Stephan Schmitt, president/CEO of TUV Rheinland North America Holding Inc.

In 2006, TÜVRheinland expanded its Guided Transport Systems Division into North America. The division tests and certifies railroad components and systems for manufacturers globally.

The addition of RSI and its materials engineering test laboratory further adds depth to the services TÜVRheinland provides in the U.S. and Canada, according to the company.
