NPRS has come through when we needed them most on smaller scale MRU repair services as well as larger projects, each providing excellent customer service with both timely responses to inquiries and making schedule adjustments to help critical needs that arose.
We have been utilizing NPR for rail safety training and have seen nothing but positive results. Their instructors are knowledgeable and have substantial experience, which enables them to answer the difficult questions.
NPRS provides an excellent balance of hands-on application and classroom training to make sure everyone understands how to safely conduct rail operations. Tom’s passion during his training is contagious, and attendees leave with a positive and proactive approach to Rail Safety.
We use NPR for all our track and engine inspections and maintenance. They deliver fast and exceptional service. We had a rail break when we were loading a 110-car shuttle and derailed a few cars. I called them and within an hour they were onsite, and had us running in less than three hours. Great company to work with.
Our employees get so much knowledge from the NPRS in-person training class. Being a short-line railroad, we aren’t always able to send our employees to the conferences to attend breakout sessions and get the latest knowledge in their craft. Steve brings that knowledge to the classroom, and it produces a better product for our company!
Michael and the NPRS team have been valuable partners for Red River Biorefinery as we have scaled up operations to ship product both domestically and internationally. They have been very flexible and are always responsive to both our needs and our customers.
Steve and NPR’s safety training have been instrumental in helping our local facility continue to drive for zero injuries. He finds a way to make an emotional connection to the safety around rail, and drives it home with a great presentation and energy.
NPR is a very professional and reliable company; whether they are maintaining our tracks or our locomotive, we are always pleased with the outcome. They are and always will be our first call. Thanks, NPR!
