Who says the economy is stagnant...? Metal Locking Service is enjoying its largest backlog on record and we are completely sold through the end of January. The railroads are keeping us busy with 14 current engine repairs on the books. Technicians are currently on-site in Boise, ID, Grove City, PA, St. Paul, MN and Melbourne, Australia. We have added 3 new shop employees within the last month and are looking for more. If railroads are a leading indicator of the direction of the economy, then MLS is expecting big things for 2012.
