LOUISVILLE, Miss. – Louisville Railcar Repair broke ground this week on a new $1.3 million repair, paint, and welding plant in Louisville. The company repairs, refurbishes, and services cars that have been involved in accidents or derailments, cars that need replacement parts due to metal fatigue, or scheduled inspections per federal requirements. The company began operation in June 2011.

The facility is located on the site formerly owned by Richton Tie and Timber Co. In 2011, the City of Louisville purchased the property to create a transload facility for shippers using Kansas City Southern. The railcar plant will be built near the transload complex. The Mississippi Development Authority and the Appalachian Regional Commission worked with the company and local officials on the project and provided assistance for infrastructure improvements and site preparation.
