CANARAIL Consultants Inc. becomes SYSTRA Canada Inc.
You have known us as CANARAIL, a Montreal-founded and based engineering firm with tremendous successes over the last 28 years. You may also know that since 1990, we have been a core part of the global transport engineering firm SYSTRA. As of July 3, 2018, we are called SYSTRA Canada.
Our new name is the only change you will notice. Our commitment to keep on doing what we do best remains unchanged: servicing clients who put their faith in us and demonstrating the added value the SYSTRA name brings. We will continue to execute projects with the same level of excellence you have come to experience and expect from us.
SYSTRA’s central role in the transport sector and our shared corporate values have shaped our recent success. As a parent company, SYSTRA has always been a strong supporter of our specific expertise in North American rail standards (AREMA, AAR), the value we bring to the rail heavy haul sector (mining and freight) and our growth in rolling stock activities, as well as our full set of rolling stock-related services (design, procurement and refurbishing) that we offer the industry, both in Canada and abroad.
SYSTRA is the signature team for transportation solutions and a global player in the mobility sector, with an operational presence in 80 countries. Its roots are in heavy rail, stretching back more than 60 years. Today, SYSTRA is involved in more than half the world’s high-speed rail and metro lines, and nearly two thirds of the world’s automated metros.
Through being part of the SYSTRA Group, we are able to offer you the full range of expertise and technical excellence that SYSTRA makes available to its clients worldwide, through innovation and bold leadership, with safety as a shared value across our organization.
We are confident in our ability to blend our strengths and successes over the past 28 years as CANARAIL with SYSTRA’s expertise as the signature team for transportation solutions for the entire mobility market, spanning passengers, goods and commodities.
As SYSTRA Canada, we will be able to deliver larger and more complex projects for the transportation market on time and on budget, always with safety at their core.
The transition to the SYSTRA brand builds on our rich heritage. Over the years, we have gained an incredible reputation and helped our clients deliver some renowned flagship projects in different corners of the world. Our name is behind the new state-of-the-art 2,400 km North South Railway in Saudi Arabia, the ongoing delivery of refurbished luxury GoldLeaf bi-level cars for Rocky Mountaineer in Canada (recognized by the National Geographic magazine as one of the “World’s Best Journeys”) and various national rail-building projects throughout the world.
2018 is no exception, with the mobilization of our team for the procurement of the first new fleet in 40 years for VIA Rail Canada, while accompanying them in the development of their High-Frequency Rail project, another game changer for the Canadian domestic passenger rail operator.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your past support and we look forward to continuing to serve you in the future.
