Railroad Permanent Way was established in 1937 by Nelson Moses in Ashtabula, Ohio. In 1969, Railroad Permanent Way merged with Railroad Rubber Products, Inc. of Florida to form International Track Systems, Inc., naming Nelson Moses president. Nelson used his knowledge of rubber and combined that with his incredible ability to innovate and a lasting brand was born. Word of Nelson’s innovations spanned the globe, drawing interest from as far away as Japan. International Track Systems, Inc. known in the railroad community as ITS, became an instantly recognizable brand in the industry which lasts to this day. From the beginning, we’ve been pioneers and innovators of track materials. With a focus on rubber and plastic components, we continue to design and innovate, ever-striving to keep up with the pace set by Nelson Moses in 1937.

From 1980 to 2018, under the management of former president Benjamin Baker, ITS diversified and grew into other markets, primarily the truck and trailer market. We manufacture sub-frame cushions, seals, gaskets, bumpers, and more for some of the biggest truck body builders in the world.

In 2018, we acquired StarClass. Now, in addition to our core rubber and plastic business, we manufacture and sell APU’s to railroads all over the frozen north. The APU saves up to 20 gallons of fuel per locomotive per day by eliminating idling and water dumping.

Our company is now headquartered in New Castle, Pennsylvania

Current directors: Charles Garro, Tye Tyson, Larry Reiter, R. Nelson Moses, A. Fred Moses
