Baier® Rail is a division of Baier® Marine Company, Inc.
Baier® Marine has provided closures to the marine and other commercial industries since 1947, and its equipment has been deployed on tugboats, offshore supply vessels, fishing trawlers and crabbers, submersible barges, chemical barges, and many unique applications where strength, quality and value are required.
Baier® Marine was challenged by the rail industry with an initiative to address the need for a better tank car closure system. Existing drop-bolt designs utilizing flat gaskets are leak-prone and labor intensive. The bar was high, but the parameters fit perfectly into our unique experience and strong skill sets of design, engineering and manufacturing of a variety of closure types for the marine industry.
The result of this initiative is Baier® Rail’s Single-Bolt Manway – a superior, purpose built, modern solution for the railway tank car industry approved by the Association of American Railroads (AAR).
Both Baier® Rail and Baier® Marine are located in Costa Mesa, California.
