The City of Kingman Economic Development Department is pleased to announce that Patriot Rail at the industrial park has expanded its rail capacity. This investment, including the price of the land, is approximately $2.25 million. This investment facilitates the supply chain needed to support the surrounding communities.

City of Kingman Mayor Ken Watkins said, “Our industrial park continues to be a great location for new businesses and established companies looking to expand, due to our close proximity to rail and other interstate routes in the area.”

“We are excited to offer our services to the Kingman Industrial Park,” said Tom Naso Assistant Vice President of Sales for Patriot Rail. “The rail-to-truck transload facility operated by Patriot Rail will sit on 9.5 acres, consisting of two tracks totaling 1,400 feet, and can handle 1,000 annual carloads. The facility is designed to allow trucks to transfer shipments to/from the rail easily and is ideal for liquid energy, aggregates, and industrial products. This is a prime location to serve industries in northwestern Arizona, Las Vegas, and southern California markets.”

City of Kingman Economic Development Manager Bennet Bratley said, “Transloading offers the ability to transfer large volumes of freight from one form of transport to another, and in this case, it is from railcar to truck. This enables businesses to keep their transfer times quick and gives them greater quality control over the process.”
