Rail and Industrial Products

In 1938, Dr. Charles CADWELL, founded the company Electric Railway Improvement Company (ERICO). There is no wonder then why ERICO is the industry leader for rail & industrial products products. Specialising in rail signal bonding, rail clips, rail drilling machines, rail grinders, copper inserts and much more, we can supply various types of connections to meet specific requirements. ERICO’s surge protection products are also widely used in the rail industry in signalling and communication equipment such as the rail transient barriers (RTB) and Triggered Spark Gap Surge Reduction Filters (TSG-SRF).  WAPP was appointed by ERICO to be their sole distributor in Perth, WA for their Rail Division.

Over the years, these products have been developed to be used across all industries from mining, oil & gas, construction to infrastructure.
