VIP Rail and Procor Limited Announce New Strategic Partnership

VIP Rail ULC, a Alpenglow Rail company and Procor Limited, a Marmon/Berkshire Hathaway company are pleased to announce the completion of their strategic partnership. The collaboration between the two companies will consist of Procor providing railcar repair and cleaning services at VIP’s Sarnia and Corunna locations. VIP owns a 50-acre, 1,000 car railyard located at 300 Kenny Street Sarnia, ON, and a 112-acre, 400 car railyard located at 220 St Clair Pkwy Corunna, ON. The two facilities are in the epicenter of Sarnia’s chemical valley which are surrounded by some of the largest refineries and petrochemical producers in Canada.

The agreement has created an opportunity to offer existing and new customers a broad range of high-quality railcar services at both VIP locations. “We are excited to work with VIP to continue to create value added inspection and maintenance services for our customers through a streamlined one-stop service offering. Our new partnership with VIP will allows us to continue to provide high quality and cost-effective solutions that meet our customers needs.” said Jay McGill, Procor’s Vice President & General Manager of North American Field Services

VIP stores over 1,400 railcars with access to both CN and CSX Railroads specializing in safely providing switching, storage, transloading and railcar cleaning services. Rich Montgomery, CEO of Alpenglow Rail commented “VIP does not focus on maintenance and repair, this partnership with Procor will further our service offering, allowing VIP to provide customers a one stop shop for all rail needs. Procor’s commitment to safety and customer service has positioned Procor as a great culture fit and partner for VIP.”
