    • | RSI ANNUAL REPORT 2012 | SUPPORT |ABOUT US RSI is Your Voice in Washington The Railway Supply Institute (RSI) acts on behalf of suppliers to North American railroads and their employees. Made up of companies throughout the United States and Canada, RSI is the only all-inclusive trade association for the entire rail supply industry. RSI represents a diverse group of rail suppliers involved in the manufacture of products and services in the freight car, locomotive, maintenance-of-way, communications and signaling, leasing, and passenger rail industries. RSI connects members to their customers and partners; supports the improvement of the industry; assists members in the global marketplace; and represents the industry during the regulatory and legislative process. Support. . . Support of railway suppliers is important to the railroad industry.  RSI organizes seven industry committees on critical issues such as the safe transportation of hazardous materials, grade crossing safety, and technical standards. Our committees assist members in collaborating to resolve the technical, legislative, and regulatory issues unique to the rail supply industry. Connection. . . Railway suppliers are connected and strengthened by RSI. RSI members meet and do business with freight and passenger railroads and other suppliers at annual conferences, trade shows, and industry events. We are the center of the industry network, giving our members the opportunity to connect with the true decision-makers within the rail industry. Advocacy. . . RSI is your voice in Washington. RSI has a presence on Capitol Hill and among the regulatory agencies that write the rules for the rail industry—continually advocating safe, sensible, and efficient solutions that work for rail, suppliers, and the people who depend on us to move their goods. RSI aids members in communicating their interests to legislators, regulators, and other industry stakeholders. steve schmollinger2 RSI ANNUAL REPORT 2012

    • | RSI ANNUAL REPORT 2012 | SUPPORT |CHAIRMAN’S MESSAGE Dear RSI Members and Friends, I have been privileged to serve as chairman this past year, but more privileged to sit on the RSI Board for the past six. We have seen the association get bigger and stronger—attributes that have helped us improve service to our members. Our iconic “Support, Connection, Advocacy” tagline was never more true than this year. By any measure—membership, trade shows, committee activities, and our advo- cacy program—RSI has continued to deliver for our members and their customers. The RSI Board directed RSI to develop a five-year strategic plan outlining concrete steps on how the organization can better serve its members and a course of action. As we implement and evaluate our plan, RSI President Tom Simpson will ask for member input on how we can meet our goals of increasing membership, enhancing the member experience, and better serving the industry. RSI also will explore marketing opportunities for its membership in North America and abroad. With RSSI and REMSA, our joint trade shows (Railway Interchange) will continue through at least 2019. The Board has determined that future even- year shows (RSI/CMA Trade Show and Technical Conference) will move to rail- road headquarter cities. You’ll find us in Montreal in 2014. If you do business withMichael J. Mitrovich CN or VIA Rail, you should be there. Finally, RSI and REMSA will be sponsoringPresident, MPL Technology, Inc., a USA Pavilion at Brazil’s Business on Rails in 2013 and Germany’s Innotrans inManaging Partner, SpillX, LLC 2014. Look for more opportunities for international marketing throughout the year. Highlights from 2012: RSI membership remains strong, and we are thankful for your support. With over 220 member companies, including 21 new ones, you can be assured that your membership is appreciated. All members and their contact information are listed in the mem- bership directory located in the back of this report (page 26). The RSI/CMA 2012 Exhibition and Technical Conference in Chicago (page 16) was record breaking for an even-year trade show, with well over 100 exhibiting companies and 1,300 attending. The event was enhanced by the opening session, where attendees heard from keynote speaker Carl Ice, President of BNSF Railway, and famed Wall Street analyst Tony Hatch. We are thankful to all RSI members who exhibited, sponsored, and attended. We hope to see you all at Railway Interchange/2013 in September. RSI is not just a trade show organization. With an active advocacy program that follows a wide array of legislative and regulatory issues, RSI is recognized as the voice of the supply industry in Washington, D.C. (page 20). In 2012, RSI met with over 250 members of Congress and their staff. Our overall strategy is simple: promote the interests of our industry by advocating rail-friendly leg- islation and working to prevent harmful regulations that stifle us. Our program committees (page 10) give members access to railroad officials, shipper customers, and federal regulators, with the opportunity to influence and improve the rail industry. The Association of American Railroads and its railroad members look to the RSI ARCI, Tank Car, Quality, Leasing, and Coupler committees for help on virtually every regulatory or technical issue. Also, the Washington Affairs Committee is the vehicle we use to gather member input on legislative issues. Finally, I’d like to thank my fellow Board members for their leadership and support. Next year’s leadership team of Fred Sasser, Mike Foxx, and Jeff Stearns will serve RSI and its membership well. Also, thanks to the RSI staff of Tom, Nicole, Robyn, Amanda, and Brian for their work.  This annual report can only briefly touch on the activities undertaken by RSI. I encourage you to reflect on these activities and ask you to take full advantage of what RSI offers to your company. I also ask you to peruse our membership directory (page 26), as it is the most important part of this report—without our members’ crucial support, RSI would cease to exist.4 RSI ANNUAL REPORT 2012

    • | RSI ANNUAL REPORT 2012 | SUPPORT |TESTIMONIAL The Value of RSI Amsted Rail Company, Inc., is an ardent and active supporter of RSI. Some of our predecessor companies have roots going back over a century, and Amsted Rail has many globally recognized brands in the railroad industry. Throughout this long history, Amsted Rail has been an active member of both the former Railway Supply Association and the Railway Progress Institute, and since 2003, the combined organization that is now the Railway Supply Institute. RSI’s diverse membership comprises over 220 companies across the entire spectrum of North American freight and passenger railway suppliers (page 26). The size of the RSI member companies ranges from Patrick Ameen sole proprietorships to large conglomerates. Vice President Industry Relations Amsted Rail Company, Inc. Most RSI members either do not have a Washington presence or cannot afford one. RSI’s top leaders are both registered lobbyists and know their way around Capitol Hill, the government regulatory agencies, and the White House. RSI has an active government relations committee known as the Washington Affairs Committee (page 10). RSI is the railway supply industry’s singular voice on legislative and regulatory issues in Washington, D.C. That is a primary reason for Amsted Rail’s continued support. Whether it’s the threat of increased truck size and weight issues in Congress or contemplated Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) regulations adversely affecting the industry, RSI is there for us. RSI conducts the largest freight railroad industry trade show in North America, bringing together, under one roof and in periodic outdoor track exhibits, thousands of customers, with a strong international flavor. In addition to the many exhibits, RSI sponsors the Annual Technical Conferences of the four Coordinated Mechanical Associations. This draws experts in freight cars, locomotives, air brakes, and railroad operating rules from railroads, leasing companies, government agencies, the Association of American Railroads (AAR), and the supply community (page 16). RSI has several standing committees which provide critical interface, liaison, and advocacy with AAR and the U.S. Department of Transportation (FRA, in particular) on tank car issues, other freight car types, and rolling stock and infrastructure components, with respect to governmental regulation and industry technical standards (page 10). Whether you have a single product or service, or offer a diverse portfolio to the industry, I urge you to join or rejoin and become active in all that RSI has to offer.8 RSI Annual Report 2012
