Earlier this week, RailPros announced that Bow River Capital Partners, headquartered in Denver, has made a major investment in RailPros and RailPros Field Services. The action follows an intense effort by the management team to identify a partner who can help us continue to improve and to grow as RailPros.
Part of our strategy was to find a partner that would strengthen our team and our brand, which has been successful for some time. We are excited to have Bow River as part of the strategic team, and look forward to continuing our plans for growth and improvement.
This means that for the RailPros team, very little will change as we go forward. The company name, management team, and operation will continue in the same fashion. Eric Hankinson and Johnny Johnson will to continue to lead the two companies as we continue to improve and expand. Bow River has partnered with other engineering and technical services firms over the years; they will provide great support in finance, acquisitions, and strategic improvements. We expect our customers will benefit greatly from more rapid improvements in technology and service delivery. We will remain focused on our customers and strengthen and build on our offerings to deliver even greater value.
Our employees will see few changes in the coming months as a result of the recapitalization. We will, however, need additional staff to handle the influx of work expected, so there will be plenty of new positions with our exciting firm, which is growing daily! We encourage candidates to review our Careers page and submit their resumes for consideration.
