Long Beach, California – 12 September 2022 – REMPREX announced today at the IANA Intermodal Conference and Exhibition, an exclusive partnership with Rombit to resell their worker safety solution across the North American Class 1 intermodal market. In addition, REMPREX is deploying the technology to their North American equipment maintenance staff.
The innovative Rombit solution includes hardware technology to prevent struck-by incidents, respond to man-down incidents, and ensure safe terminal evacuations. The cellular based IoT devices are worn by workers and communicate to a cloud-based application. In addition to the technology, REMPREX will provide a 24/7 monitoring service integrated with terminal protective services agents and first responders.
Craig Zarzecki, SVP Mechanical at REMPREX commented “The intermodal industry has lagged in terms of operator safety. At REMPREX, we work hard to build a safety-first culture both in our Class 1 terminal operations and for our lift equipment maintenance (LEM) staff serving them. Partnering with Rombit and integrating the solution with our incident response center will be a first in the industry”.
“We are excited about the relationship with Rombit and look forward to both the reseller partnership and our own use of the solution ” Remy Diebes, REMPREX President & CEO noted. “A significant part of our growth strategy is bringing new technologies to the Class 1 market. Key to this is our philosophy of using technology in our own operations before releasing to the general market hence our commitment to deploy Rombit wearables on our LEM staff “.
“REMPREX has always been a leader in worker safety and deploying cutting edge technology. Rombit is proud to engage with them to bring our safety solutions to the North American Class 1 rails,” adds Dave Lambacher, Executive Director of Rombit Americas.
