Progress Rail

Progress Rail (Rail Turnouts)

A workforce with ready to mold success:

Employing Lean Manufacturing and Six Sigma methodologies, Kaiser Aluminum’s fully integrated aluminum extrusion manufacturing operation in Progress Park has been able to combine higher productivity with lower energy costs through collaboration between Kaiser staff and the U.S. Department of Energy. Now their assessments are being adopted across the corporation. At Emerson Process Management, a Fisher Controls manufacturing site, stellar teamwork and communication resulted in record safety performance.  These are typical success stories in Progress Park, where a can-do workforce is just the beginning of the benefits metal manufacturers enjoy.

A high degree of support:

Low costs and tailored incentives (including exemptions for tangible property and for sales and use tax on natural gas and electricity) also aid in rapid ROI and provide strategic maneuverability for companies on the move, like Progress Rail creating high-quality specialized track work for the global rail market.
