Welcome to Gross & Janes Co.!
Gross & Janes Co. is one of North America's largest supply-chain providers of untreated railroad crossties and switch ties. Many Class-1 railroads and track maintenance contractors rely upon our 100-year expertise in procurement of quality materials. Equally, our extensive sawmill provider network covers a multi-state region enabling G&J to market crosstie production to multiple sources.
Gross & Janes Co. was an early industry innovator of the patented Tuff-Tie™ Borate Pre-Treated crosstie. Tuff-Tie™ is a two-step treatment using Borate Disodium Octaborate Tetrahydrate (DOT) wood preservative that is designed to be utilized with other oil-borne preservative methods. The Cellutreat formulation is made from a natural mineral salt and is an EPA-registered, non-restricted use/general use preservative also standardized by the AWPA (P25). It can be applied to green wood prior to air seasoning by vacuum pressure, dip diffusion or spray.
