We are foremost a service organization. Our technology, personnel and business exist to serve the requirements of our clients. We believe both forward thinking and responsiveness must be inherent to our operating culture.
Railway clients share common issues but are inherently unique in their operations, with widely varying infrastructures, cultures, track conditions, usage, standards, and regulatory oversight. The Sperry Approach is to customize our proprietary capabilities and best-available technologies for programs specific to each railway.
We are committed to innovation, an essential element of our operating philosophy and culture. Innovation is ongoing and includes numerous enhancements to improve test accuracy, and speed of testing. In recent years, the company has invested significantly to enhance the usefulness and reliability of its test data with integrated web-based systems, and to improve operating standards through comprehensive training programs and evaluation tools for field personnel.
Our overall vision for rail flaw detection services is to transform rail testing from a discrete, event-driven activity to a predictive process fully integrated with proactive, cost-effective rail management programs.
