Ironhorse is On Track at the Border

Buys 1,244 Acres in Santa Teresa for Development



Santa Teresa, NM — Today, Ironhorse Resources, Inc. announced the purchase of 1,244 acres in Santa Teresa, New Mexico. The Santa Teresa region, located on New Mexico’s border with Mexico, has been one of the fastest growing industrial areas in the Southwest.

“We expect business development in the Southern New Mexico / El Paso / Juarez, known as the Borderplex region, will occur around Santa Teresa.  We’re located adjacent to Union Pacific’s Intermodal & refueling terminal and we are connected to a heavy-haul truck corridor with direct access to Juarez.  We are now poised to offer build-to-suit rail solutions for all sizes of industries (big or small)”, said Jeff Baskett, Executive Vice President of Ironhorse Resources.

Ironhorse Resources, Inc., through its affiliate, IHR Holdings, LLC (“Ironhorse”) bought the remaining 1,244 acres of development property in the Santa Teresa Rail Park in Santa Teresa, New Mexico. The Ironhorse subsidiary, Santa Teresa Southern Railroad, is the rail operator with a direct connection to Union Pacific Railroad.

Santa Teresa Southern Railroad is unit train capable and has been serving the region since opening in 2012 and now handles rail shipments of Corn Syrup, Feed Grains, Scrap Metal, Windmill Blades and a variety of other commodities.

“As an industrial rail park developer and logistics company, we have seen how vertically integrating land solutions, rail offerings, transload capabilities and trucking solutions creates unparalleled value to our customers.  The platform that we offer helps to ensure our customers’ success in any market.  We are extremely excited to have the opportunity to assist in driving growth in the community”, adds Matt Cundiff, President of Ironhorse Resources.

Firms such as Union Pacific, Foxconn, and Federal Express have also recently located their operations in Santa Teresa.
