We are a leading African rail infrastructure
Rail 2 Rail has been in the industry for close to a decade manufacturing concrete railway sleepers in compliance with SABS ISO 9001-2000 standards. We are the only majority black owned supplier of concrete sleepers and one of the biggest manufacturers of concrete sleepers in South Africa.
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.

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 some of our monthly operational expenditure to suppliers in and around the city. We currently have the capacity to produce over 400 000+ 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.
