About Trans-Tech, LLC

Established in 1994, Trans-Tech is an AAR-M-1003 compliant manufacturer located in the state of Oklahoma. As the largest user of premium vinyl in the Southwest region, we specialize in transportation decals for the rail car industry. In 1997, due to continuous growth, Trans-Tech moved to a 6000 square foot facility complete with state-of-the-art computerized equipment, for producing Rail car decals. Trans-Tech also supplies AEI tags shipped along with Rail Car Decal Orders.

In 1998, Trans-Tech was nominated by El Reno Industrial Development Corporation for “Most Promising New Business in the State of Oklahoma”. Trans-Tech was voted 1 of 10 finalists out of 5,000 companies.

As the owner of Trans-Tech, Dale Cox put his 44 years of experience in the rail industry to use. He started from Grass Roots in the Rail Road Shops. He worked through management positions in Production, Quality Control, Sales, and Marketing. Dale’s knowledge of “The Rail Industry” as well as its rules and regulations, puts Trans-Tech a step ahead of the competition.

Dale dedicates his time to his company as well as his community. His other interests include involvement with:

  • Leadership Canadian County Program
  • Small Business Administration through the Canadian Valley Vo-tech
  • National Youth Leadership Forum


We love doing business with Trans-tech. They have excellent customer service and are very professional.  If any issues arise, they are very quick to respond and correct without question.

It’s good to know that our needs will be taken care of with no hassle.

We have been doing business with Trans-Tech since 2001.  They are our preferred decal supplier due to their knowledge of the rail car industry.  They are very reliable and have on time delivery.  Trans-Tech is a company that has an easy & efficient ordering system and has the ability to make things happen in a timely manner.  They have competitive pricing and their high standards of service set them apart from the rest.

My name is Allen Chramosta, and am the Purchasing Agent for ARS Nebraska, LLC, in Grand Island Nebraska. Our company, formerly FreightCar Rail Services and DTE Rail Services, has been working with Trans-Tech on many of our facilities vinyl and program needs over the last 8-10 years.

What I like the most about Chad and his staff at Trans-Tech is their willingness to go the extra mile on urgent needs. Pricing is very competitive, and most orders ship within 1-2 days. I always get their invoices the day the orders ship, along with the tracking# for the shipment.

In the event of an issue, their staff goes above and beyond to get it reconciled as soon as possible. This hasn’t happened very often, but they always take care of us. Their professionalism and quality of product is top notch.

This is a letter of appreciation for all that TRANS-TECH has done over the past years of providing excellent service not only to Trinity Leasing but to our customers as well. Working and coordinating with other repair vendors through ordering materials and the tight deadline windows to ensure that materials arrive in a timely manner for application. From assisting with specialty logos and decals has been in and of itself nothing short of super. TRANS-TECH has always been a reliable source for all remarking programs and one-off materials needed. The staff has always been very professional, flexible, and helpful for our business. From a personal note if all my vendors were as reliable as TRANS-TECH life would be a little less stressful.
