ZANESVILLE, Ohio, Aug. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- AXION International Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB:AXIH), a leader in recycled plastic and plastic composite technologies used to produce ECOTRAX® rail ties/sleepers and STRUXURE® building products, and a vertically integrated re-processor and supplier of recycled plastic, announced today that it has received its third purchase order totaling $471,000 for ECOTRAX® rail ties to be shipped to Australia.
AXION's ECOTRAX® rail ties are being installed throughout Australia on both mainline and specialty applications. AXION received Type Approval from multiple major freight railroads in Australia following roughly 3 years of successful in-track testing, which has led to an increase in demand.
Cory Burdick, Global Manager ECOTRAX Rail Division of AXION said, "With the completion of successful in-track testing, we are in the process of filling orders as the Australian market has been receptive and impressed with the many benefits that ECOTRAX rail ties have over traditional hardwood ties. We have taken considerable time and focus to develop the market and we anticipate many forthcoming purchase orders."
ECOTRAX® ties have proven to be resilient and impervious to climate changes, offering proven durability, longevity, and lifecycle cost saving over traditional ties while providing environmental benefits and meeting and exceeding all industry standards. ECOTRAX® ties are a viable solution for replacing wood ties, as needed, and are impermeable to rot and insect damage and reduce the harvesting of trees.
AXION currently sells its ECOTRAX® rail ties/sleepers to multiple domestic and international transit and freight railroads including a domestic class 1 contract and a trial with a second class 1.
