Progress Rail and Electro-Motive deliver a full range of cost-effective solutions to a broad spectrum of railway customers. Whether it rolls on the rail or is the rail itself, Progress Rail and Electro-Motive can provide new, remanufactured or recycled assets – offering customers one-stop shopping and comprehensive cradle-to-grave railway solutions.

We do this through two key business units: Locomotive and Railcar Services (LRS) and Engineering and Track Services (ETS).

As part of Progress Rail’s LRS division, Electro-Motive (also known as EMD) designs, builds, maintains and services a full range of locomotives, including freight, passenger, mining, and switching locomotives. EMD’s locomotives carry the Electro-Motive brand and are branded separately from Cat offerings, having a direct sales relationship to customers. Progress Rail’s LRS division pursues a similar branding and path to market, servicing rail cars, locomotives and a variety of other rolling stock. Progress Rail also supplies Cat diesel engines for the rail industry.

Progress Rail’s ETS division provides solutions for railway infrastructure, including new and used rail, rail welding, trackwork components, maintenance-of-way equipment, and signal devices. These products and services are branded as Progress Rail and sold direct to customers.
