“Congratulations to the 47 contractors recognized with platinum, gold, silver, and bronze awards. It was exhilarating to honor their significant achievement at the NRC’s annual conference in Scottsdale,” said Michael McGonagle, the NRC’s vice president of government affairs and operations. “Thank you to Messrs.

The NRC is a U.S. trade association that advances the mutual interests of railway contractors and suppliers who construct, maintain and supply freight railroads and rail-transit and passenger lines. Founded in 1978, the NRC connects members with other railway industry professionals and government officials and policy makers. The NRC collaborates with its members, government, and industry leaders to create a positive business climate and to make railway construction and maintenance safer and more efficient.
“For the FRA Part 219 and 243 implementation, the NRC was especially helpful for us in that they provide member companies guidance in how to comply with the ever-changing federal regulations. We also value the annual safety awards which we use to motivate our employees to uphold the highest level of safety as well as in business development materials.”
