Knapp started working with Superior Silica in Barron in 2012. During that time, Knapp Railroad Builders had performed many new construction projects for thousands of feet of track.
Knapp Railroad Builders was presented with the Silica project in mid 2012, and the requirements included a very tight deadline to accomplish everything. Knapp was not only able to get the work completed for the thousands of feet of track on time, but was able to meet the high standards that Silica has for all of their rail project requirements. Knapp enlisted several members of their team to work concurrently on all aspects of the project in order to get it finished before the first carload of sand was ready for shipment.
Knapp understood the importance of getting this completed on time due to the high demand of the Frac sand industry. Superior is one of many customers that Knapp RR has obtained because of their stellar service record, quality, and on-time completion.
We not only got it finished on time, but the quality is what set us apart on this job.
Others will say they can do it. We can show it time after time. Not only do we do it efficiently, but we stand behind our work 100%.
Here are some basic stats for the job that we did at Superior Silica Sands:
- Over 20,000 feet of track
- Multiple Switches
- Track work in a concrete loading area
- Earth burms
- ballast, raise, and tamping track
