Green is the New Black at This Year’s ASLRRA Annual Conference

NRE Vice President of North American Sales, Brandon Schwartz, and other members of the NRE Leadership, Business Development, and Technical Sales teams are in Phoenix, AZ attending the long awaited ASLRRA Connections 21 conference hosted by the American Short Line Railroad Association. New to this years conference exhibition is the “Green Zone”, a vendor space designated for the industries growing green initiatives. While NRE is a vertically integrated full service Locomotive production company that serves all facets of Locomotive use, their show presence and Shortline focus will be on NRE green solutions and history.

“With recent changes to emission standards and an overall trend to be more environmentally friendly, the Green Zone is a great idea for this show, and likewise, we’re a logical fit. Essentially, we’ve been recycling locomotives and parts since our inception in 1984” said Brandon Schwartz, Vice President of North American Sales. “We are the original green locomotive solutions provider!”

Additional plans for this year’s show experience include discussing NRE’s new Wheel Shop and the new NRE Performance Center, both newly launched and fully operational in Paducah, KY. The booth space will feature a one-of-a-kind art sculpture made with repurposed locomotive parts greeting all passers-by, while each booth visitor will have a chance to win a set of Apple AirPods. NRE will be located in booths 306 & 308.

“We’re looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones,” Schwartz added. “We invite all showgoers to stop by and learn more about how NRE can help breathe new life into their existing fleet.”

NRE, headquartered in Mt. Vernon, IL, is a vertically integrated provider of new and remanufactured locomotives for sale or lease, third party locomotive and marine engine overhaul and maintenance services, and locomotive parts and components. Since its inception in 1984, NRE has grown to become one of the world’s largest independent suppliers of leased locomotives, new and remanufactured locomotives, new and rebuilt mechanical materials, electrical components, technical support, and field services.
