FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Salco Products and Baier Rail are pleased to announce the start of an exclusive distribution
agreement for Baier’s Single-Bolt Manway rail tank car system. The agreement brings
together the outstanding market reach and customer service capabilities of Salco with the
innovation of Baier Rail’s manway system.
Salco, a veteran company with 37 years of experience in the rail market, brings a track
record of providing superior quality products and on-time delivery to the industry. Salco is
one of the largest and most trusted companies in the business today.
Baier Rail, the inventor of the innovative Single-Bolt Manway system for tank cars, has already
demonstrated that it can meet the requirements of the modern rail tank car market. The
Single-Bolt Manway’s design carries performance far superior to traditional manway
products, which have a drop-bolt design and are leak-prone and labor-intensive. The single-
bolt design is a modern solution that increases efficiency and decreases overall costs while
maintaining the high regulatory standards of the AAR. The Single-Bolt manway is AAR
approved with over 500 covers installed.
Dave Oestermeyer, Salco’s president, commented: “We are very excited to add Baier’s
Single Bolt Manway system to our already extensive product line serving the rail tank car
industry. We’re very much looking forward to working with Baier to usher in this new
