From its start in 1972 as a subsidiary of North America’s third largest railcar lessor, Nacco has grown to become the most important independent full service railcar lessor in Europe. With its head office in Paris and a network of subsidiaries and exclusive agents across Europe, Nacco today serves over 160 customers in 16 countries.
With more than 42 years of experience the company has created strong relationships with customers and suppliers. Nacco’s reputation is built on solid foundations: extensive knowledge of the railcar leasing business, broad coverage of the European market and a close-knit corporate structure ensuring rapid decisions and quick responses.
Nacco’s constantly growing fleet now exceeds 10,000 cars. Customers include the major shippers in the petroleum, chemical and petrochemical industries, as well as those moving fertilizers, minerals, timber, steel, aggregates, agricultural products, consumer goods and intermodal.
Nacco was acquired by CIT Rail in February 2014.
