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.


The NRC organizes events designed to educate and foster collaboration to strengthen the railway industry, our members and member companies.

What our members say…

I have appreciated the opportunity to give back to the industry by participating on an NRC committee. The opportunities are diverse – from membership resources, the various events, scholarships and awards – but each committee works closely with NRC leadership to help bring all of its membership services to life. Who better to serve the industry than the very people working in it!
