Production of the wheels will take place at Amsted Rail's Griffin Wheel plant in Winnipeg which is near CN's Transcona Shops where wheels are mounted on axles for installation in freight wagon bogies. The wheels will be manufactured using 100% recycled steel.


"CN has a long and successful partnership with Amsted Rail and its Griffin Wheel Company facility in Winnipeg," says Mr Gerry Weber, vice-president supply, fleet and fuel management with CN. "We are pleased to renew our partnership and solidify CN's business relationships in the city of Winnipeg."
