In May of 2009, Durex, Inc. acquired the Rail Component division of White Systems, Inc. (a division of SWS/Tek LLC). Under the terms of the offer, the new company will go under the brand “White Rail”.
The slick rail components offered today by White Rail have been in production for over 50 years! This has given White Rail ample experience in manufacturing high quality rail system components that can be found throughout the world in major distribution centers. Combining White Rail’s product line with Durex’s pre-existing manufacturing facility will create a unique environment for slick rail systems.
