It all started in Ellington, MO as a small speciality treating plant and has grown to become one of the nation’s leading producers of pressure-treated railroad ties but, we have not forgotten our humble American roots and founding values.
As a family-owned business, we’re committed to providing the highest-quality product in the railroad business.
Missouri Tie has many decades of experience in the railroad tie pressure-treating business. Missouri Tie takes every measure possible to operate a clean, safe work environment, while keeping production at a level to meet demand. We pride ourselves with providing high quality material, at the lowest cost possible, with unmatched service.
Our Facility is strategically located on over 600 acres of land in the beautiful Ozarks, giving us access to the best hardwood and softwood timber in the country. We also have ample room to air season our material. Most railroads prefer an air seasoned product and we have made the necessary investments to meet these needs.
Missouri Tie has made and continues to make large capital investments to meet quality standards in the industry, including processing equipment upgrades and treating facility upgrades. These investments have provided the necessary tools to increase production and meet demand and expectations of our customer.
Here at Missouri Tie, we value quality, which is why the nation’s top railroads trust us for their tie needs. We’ve been making quality products from the beginning, for everyone from the small contractor to the largest railroads.
