About Us

Rail 2 Rail (Pty) Ltd is driven by both the allure of rail and the opportunity to create well-functioning rail infrastructure on the continent. Our aim is to be a world-class provider of quality concrete railway sleepers in Sub-Saharan Africa, servicing public and private rail networks.

Established in 2007, we have to date provided more than a million sleepers to Transnet Freight Rail. These sleepers will be used for the maintenance of the country’s freight railway’s 22,000km network systems. We continue to provide on-going maintenance for Transnet’s demand strategy.

Presence

Kimberley, in South Africa’s Northern Cape province, is one of the country’s most impoverished communities. It was chosen for the plant not only because of its central location (which allows for easier distribution of the sleepers), but also as an opportunity for Rail 2 Rail to provide employment to locals. We now employ close to 100 community members, while also contributing towards local economic development by allocating around 60% of our monthly operational expenditure to suppliers in and around the city. We currently have the capacity to produce approximately 350,000 sleepers per annum.

Strong and long-standing relationships have also allowed us to extend our reach and capabilities. We work with partners and clients to capitalise on our shared strengths, in order to produce truly valuable solutions.
