Tactical Cleaning has been cleaning railcars since 2004. In mid-2017, Tactical was purchased by a management and investor group led by Rail Partners Management Group, Seneca Partners, and Uniprop bringing and expanding depth of management expertise and access capital. This ensures that Tactical is always positioned to meet our customers needs. We have expanded from one railcar cleaning shop in Commerce City, CO to 7 full-time railar cleaning operations including Danville, IL; El Dorado, KS; Baltimore, MD; Jersey Shore, PA; Trego, WI; and Lordstown, OH.
Amongst these shops, we can clean, repair, sandblast and flare off railcars containing various commodities. Each facility has distinct capabilities beyond the cleaning process. With our established network of short line railroads, we can arrange for railcar storage, mobile repairs, mobile railcar cleaning and blasting. We have shop locations on the UPRR, BNSF, CSXT and NS railroads, which allows us to handle your railcar cleaning needs on most major rail lines to avoid additional switch fees between the Class I railroads.
Tactical Cleaning takes a “Safety First” stand on all work performed at our shops and is committed to working safely and efficiently. We clean all cars to the level of being prepared for HM-216 requalification work, so the cars are free and clear of any residual product and are ready for tank entry and interior inspections.
