Oxford, Conn. – Nabholz Corporation has recently added railroad services to its expanding list of service lines. With this addition, Nabholz is now a single-source provider of turn-key machinery installation, relocation, design, fabrication, and maintenance for all types of railroad equipment.

The range of expertise covers hoists, turntables, transfer tables, drop tables, shim carriages, and more.
In addition to these services, Nabholz will now design and manufacture its own line of rail shop equipment, including drop tables, portable jacks, car hoists, and turntables. This equipment will be produced in the company’s full-service machining and manufacturing facility in Rogers, Arkansas and can be customized to meet clients’ needs.
