Contact: Darell Luther
Phone Number: (406) 347-5237

On March 31, 2017, Progressive Railroading announced that twenty people were chosen for recognition as the 2017 “Rising Stars” of the North American railroad industry. Tealinc, Ltd. is pleased to announce that among the twenty chosen is Tealinc President, Julie Mink. Below is an excerpt from this announcement found on Progressive Railroading website.

“This is the fifth year that Progressive Railroading has sponsored the Rising Stars Awards program. The magazine defines a Rising Star as someone under the age of 40 who has made, or is making, a positive impact on his or her company, organization, department or team, and is viewed by others — peers, colleagues, supervisors, clients or associates — as an up-and-coming leader in the rail industry.

During a nomination process that lasted several months, Progressive Railroading readers submitted a record number of nominations — more than 220 — of individuals who work for Class Is, regionals, short lines, passenger railroads, transit agencies, government agencies, academic institutions, engineering firms and suppliers.

This year’s 20 honorees were chosen based on their contributions to the railroad industry, career achievements, demonstrated leadership, professional association activity or community involvement. Their stories will be profiled on this summer and published in the magazine’s September issue.

In addition, the 2017 Rising Stars will be recognized at a dinner to be held July 23 at the Chase Park Plaza Hotel in St. Louis during the American Association of Railroad Superintendents‘ 2017 Annual Meeting.”

Congratulations Julie!

Tealinc Announces Partnership With D.A. International Casting Company

Forsyth, MT – Tealinc, Ltd. is excited to announce a partnership with D.A. International Casting Company on the Rapid-Release Cam Lock Assembly. D.A. International’s Rapid-Release system is the most advanced manual door lock system specially designed to allow one person operation from either side of the car. This system assures that unloading open top hopper cars is easier, safer and more efficient.

“This new partnership with Tealinc Ltd. offers an exciting new opportunity for D.A. International Casting Company,” said David Kerrigan, President and CEO of D.A. International Casting Co. “We are delighted to be working with this major leasing company to offer the most advanced manual dumping system on the market.”

Tealinc integrated the Rapid-Release system on it’s 4000 cube, steel bodied, manual discharge hopper and can be made available for lease or for sale. See the ad here.

The Rapid-Release system is designed using the same technology as the proven single door cam lock system, but requires fewer parts than that of a pair of single door cam locks. With one cam lock system, a pair of hopper doors can be operated from either side of the rail car by one person. It is easy to install on new or existing conventional hopper cars since it features standard mounting hole locations.
