Insights from Our President

Stand Tall, Be Strong, Show No Fear

How does a woman lead a manufacturing company while creating a competitive edge in an era of outsourcing? Perseverance.

Diversified Metal Fabricators has managed to not only sustain but also grow while sourcing American-made parts and manufacturing in-house under the leadership of President Danielle Brooks.

Danielle has spent most of her life learning, living and building the DMF standard. From age five, learning the ABCs while filing invoices, to traveling with her father at age 8, she saw firsthand what customer service looks like while learning the railroad industry. After graduating from college, she carved her own way by applying her accounting degree, away from DMF. Her passion, though, brought her back to DMF.

Why Choose DMF

See why Diversified Metal Fabricators’ Railgear is clearly The Industry’s Choice for Maintenance-of-Way Vehicles.

  • DMF rail guides and undercarriage assembly weigh less and the design is more compact than other models.
  • Fewer moving parts means less maintenance and fewer breakdowns.
  • Same day shipment of standard replacement parts.
  • All products are covered by at least a one year warranty (see warranty for more specifics).
  • DMF front railgear is mounted on the suspension and axle of the truck to support the vehicle the way the vehicle was originally designed to be supported — eliminating the need to build a reinforced frame.
  • Articulation of the rear railgear enables the vehicle to be put on the rail at a shorter crossing.
  • Greater stability with rear mounted cranes.
