Welcome to Sperry

Founded in 1928, Sperry developed the first non-destructive method of detecting flaws in rail, and set the standard for industry inspection techniques. Sperry inspects railroad track for subsurface flaws with a fleet of specialized test vehicles using proprietary technology and internally developed data management systems. Through continuous innovation and training, Sperry’s focus is to maximize flaw detection, productivity and safety, and help clients eliminate the risk of derailments.

As the largest provider of rail flaw detection services in the world, Sperry maintains active relationships with many railways, from heavy haul networks to metropolitan systems, in North America, Europe, and Asia.
