Railway Contractors and Suppliers

Building a Safer and Stronger

Railway Construction Industry Together

The National Railroad Construction and Maintenance Association – the “NRC” – is a U.S. trade association that advances the mutual interests of railway contractors and suppliers who construct, maintain and supply railroads and rail-transit lines.

Founded in 1978, the NRC connects members with other railway industry professionals and government legislators and policy makers. Together we work to create a positive business climate and to make railway construction and maintenance safer and more efficient.

Although NRC members often compete against each other, our collaboration furthers the railway construction industry and benefits North American freight, transit and commuter rail lines, our member contractors and suppliers, the general public, and our own professional growth.

What our members say…

Railroading is big business, for sure, but it’s also a family business. My railroad mentors, colleagues and connections are a key reason why I highly recommend the industry to young professionals. If you’re looking to grow your industry contacts, I recommend you attend the NRC annual conference. It’s a smart way to build valuable connections and realize the blessings of being part of a family industry.
