All WSI products are manufactured in the U.S.A. from 100% rail steel. WSI uses scrap rail from used rail road tracks as our only raw material. The rails are sorted by size, prepared and cut to specific length at our on-site Yard facility.

After receiving the rails from the Yard department, our rails are heated in a reheat furnace to more than 2300ºF to prepare them for slitting. After reheating, the rails are processed into finished hot rolled sections in the Mill by slitting, head, web, and base of the rails and routing them to a series of mill stands where hot rail sections are progressively reduced and shaped into rail steel products. Finally, the rolled products are transferred to our Finishing Department for any additional processing, storage and shipment to our customers.

At our finishing department our rolled products are finished into studded steel T-posts for the farm, ranch and vineyard industries; angle steel use for a variety of applications such as bed frame manufacturing industry; and rebar for paving applications. We have punching, painting and fabrication capabilities.

Green Initiatives

As an organization, W. Silver Inc., recognizes its responsibility towards the environment. The process of converting rail into finished goods is at the heart of its green initiatives. Even a by-product of the rolling process, such as scale, is carefully segregated and sold to other companies to be used as an aggregate for concrete making. Other highlights are:

  • Timer-activated building lights. Usage of natural light via skylights
  • Interlocks in the process that shut off conveyors when the other machines in  the line are not operational
  • Continuous improvement in increasing the power factor of the electrical     usage to maximize efficient usage of electrical power
  • Thorough segregation of process waste such as used oil, grease, oily rags and gloves, which are then disposed off to a local vendor who perform further segregation and disposal
  • Printing is discouraged and communication through electronic media is promoted strongly
  • Recycling program for trash is in the works, wherein waste will be sorted as per guidelines from local utility company
