WATERLOO – Butler County is eager to welcome a new rail car maintenance service rolling into town this summer. In tow will be more than 250 jobs and a planned capital investment of $60 million into the community.
The rail car renovation and manufacturing business, TrinityRail, is on track to break ground in July on 230 acres at Butler Logistics Park, located between Shell Rock and Clarksville near 220th Street and Vail Avenue.
“There’s a lot of unique opportunities that will come out of this,” said Jeff Kolb, executive director of the Butler County Development Alliance. “They want to nurture and give local people an opportunity to become employees but also to grow as people.”
