TrackTex: Revolutionizing Railroad Engineering with Advanced Solutions

Our product development process starts with our customers. By analysing the application and determining the properties that are required, we can manufacture a prototype of the solution and testing it to prove it meets those performance criteria. Our in-house laboratory and investment in equipment such as our full scale rail test rig allow us to undertake rigorous research to support developments.

Today the company manufactures a diverse portfolio of class leading geotextiles and geocomposites supplied into a wide range of civil engineering applications around the world. TrackTex is used within rail construction across the USA so we have local stock for easy transport to site. You can find details of our USA based team on our contact page.
