Our Focus is Rail Health

It is becoming increasingly clear that Railroading is the best choice for the movement of freight and passengers.  It is the safest, most efficient, and most environmentally beneficial mode of ground transportation.

We assist the world’s leading railroads to continuously improve safety and performance metrics.  We view this mission as “Rail Health” – ensuring our global rail infrastructure is fit for purpose to accomplish our customers’ objectives.

Our tools include rail flaw detection, surface condition monitoring and vision-based systems.  Every Sperry solution is controlled and managed by our proprietary software and data management programs.

As the largest provider of rail flaw detection services in the world, Sperry maintains active relationships with many railways, from heavy haul networks to metropolitan systems, in North America, Europe, and Asia.
