The Largest Provider Of
Rail Health® Services In the World
In 1928, Dr. Elmer Sperry established Sperry Rail Service after successfully developing the world’s first non-destructive method of testing rail, saving countless lives in the process. Dr. Sperry's prowess made him one of the most prolific inventors in America, amassing over 400 patents in his lifetime – second only to Thomas Edison.
Dr. Sperry's dedication to precision through improvement and service underscores everything we do today. Sperry is the largest provider of Rail Health® services in the world, having inspected well over 12 million miles of track and having found more than 6 million rail defects. Sperry's global reach includes active relationships with railways from heavy haul networks to metropolitan systems in North America,
South America, Europe, and Asia.
