In addition to the rebuilding of Ghana’s rail system, hand-picked personnel will be sent to the U.S. for a one-year training program that will include both classroom education and on-the-job training by Railmark personnel at one of their larger railroad companies.
AmeraMex’s partner in the project, Railmark Inc., has performed extensive construction and project management for new rail systems in developing countries around the world. The company operates in several segments of the industry including railroad operations, tract construction and maintenance and rail freight logistics. The company also develops and markets a line of environmentally safe wood railroad ties, bridge components and railcar decking.
As part of the overall program, AmeraMex will provide a rock crushing system to Ghana for the manufacturing of ballast rock for the reconstruction. At the end of the project, the system will remain in Ghana to provide maintenance of the rail system. The final component of the program calls for Railmark to install their patented system for the manufacture of environmentally friendly railroad ties, which compete favorably with the traditional creosote ties currently used in a number of countries. The manufacturing plant in Ghana will remain operational for maintenance of the new railroad and to manufacture and export railroad ties to other African nations.
“We have been developing this project with the Ghana government and Railmark over the last six months,” said AmeraMex CEO Lee Hamre. “Not only does this program provide significant opportunity for AmeraMex and its shareholders, but it provides new job opportunities for the people of Ghana and a considerably improved transportation system. The strength of AmeraMex International is its ability to develop networks for the distribution of equipment and expertise in developing countries, as well as in the U.S,” added Hamre.
