Atlantic Track and Turnout Company announces purchase of the capital assets of Mid South Rail, Memphis, TN.

Atlantic Track and Turnout Co. is expanding its railroad trackwork manufacturing capability by purchasing the capital assets of Mid-South Rail, located in Memphis, TN. Jeff Grissom, president of Mid-South Rail, will retain day-to-day responsibility for the Memphis plant, and will assume new responsibility as Director of Engineering and Manufacturing for Atlantic Track.

Atlantic Track currently produces new, special trackwork at its plant in Richmond, Il. The Memphis plant will add additional manufacturing capability to Atlantic Track, especially in more highly engineered items such as spring frogs and crossings, and will offer reconditioned frogs, switches and other railroad items manufactured in Memphis to the southeastern USA.

"Atlantic Track intends to grow its frog and switch manufacturing business" according to Peter Hughes, President of Atlantic Track. Over the past number of years, Atlantic Track has acquired and installed equipment necessary to manufacture track products that are essential to railroads in the USA and internationally. "We need additional equipment to expand our product offering", Hughes said, "but even more we needed a leader who could consolidate and coordinate into a unified plan the capabilities of all our plants. With more than 25 years of experience in the engineering and manufacture of railroad trackwork and components, Jeff is that recognized leader."

Founded in 1924, Atlantic Track is a manufacturer of new and reconditioned switches and trackwork components; a manufacturer of new composite third rail and fiberglass insulators and coverboard; a nation-wide supplier of new and relay quality rails and OTM; and is a leading supplier of crane rails and accessories.

Atlantic Track has sales, production and warehousing locations in 10 states and is ISO certified.
