Andersons starts railcar paint, blast facility


The Andersons Inc. has begun construction of a 27,300-square-foot railcar paint and blast shop in Maumee. The shop, adjacent to its railcar repair facility, is expected to be completed next spring. A company spokesman would not reveal the cost of the project.

The company said the new facility will allow it to wash, blast, and paint railcars in a more efficient and environmentally friendly way. The project also includes 1,700 feet of new rail track to allow railcars to move through the facility.

The Andersons Rail Group operates a railcar repair business with 12 U.S. facilities. It has a fleet of more than 23,000 railcars and locomotives.
