Groundbreaking for Railroad Tie Manufacturing Project in Eastern Iowa

Friday, July 19, 2013

DES MOINES, Iowa – Neumann Brothers, Inc. began construction on an advanced railroad tie facility for a European rail tie manufacturer. This design-build project is an integral part of economic development in Iowa. This investment will create over 60 new jobs for the state.

Neumann and its in-house subsidiary company, DesignBuild Solutions, integrated architectural design services with construction capabilities at the request of the owner to achieve their aggressive completion schedule. Neumann Brothers will construct a pre-engineered metal production facility along with a storage yard for the manufacturer. Neumann Brothers is also responsible for site grading, site utilities, and over a mile of rail.

“It’s exciting to be the design-builder of choice to help the European investor realize their vision in the United States,” said Kevin Clemens, Project Manager. “Their technology will move us into the future with a longer-lasting, sustainable product for heavy haul freight travel.”

High quality production resources in close proximity to the rail line led the manufacturing company to expand its operations. Neumann Brothers is expected to complete this project in 2014.

Neumann Brothers, Inc. is a general contractor located in Des Moines and Cedar Rapids, Iowa specializing in pre-construction and construction services including new construction, construction management, historical restoration and renovation, tenant improvements, design-build construction and industrial and millwright services. Last year, Neumann Brothers celebrated their 100th year anniversary.>
