Rail Plants

Porta-Plant - When the availability of rail trains or delivery of welded strings to a job site is not practical, a Holland Porta-Plant can solve some of the most critical issues for our customers planning rail installation projects. Similar in function to one of our fixed plant locations, we can provide a cost-effective solution to your logistical needs while delivering the same complete welding services.

Fixed Plants - Holland not only has experience engineering, building and operating our fixed rail welding facilities, but we also design and manufacture welding plant equipment for unique customer needs. As the industry leader in flash-butt welding, we offer high production equipment built by experienced personnel. Whether it’s rehabilitating an existing facility or welder, or updating equipment like polishes and pullers, we work with you to figure out precisely what’s needed to get the job done right.

Visit our Rail Plants Page for more information on both of these services


Rail Trains

Holland engineers and manufactures rail trains and cars designed to load and unload rail strings in a variety of weights and length. With AAR and OSHA approved safety features, this ensures our cars are not only quality but keeps safety as the top priority for your projects.
