DECCO started operations in 1993 to assist in the development of railway and communication infrastructure in Mexico through the pressure treatment of wooden sleepers for railroads, after 25 years of experience we have become the leading supplier of pressure treated wooden sleepers in Latin America, for over 10 years we have had significant presence in the southern United States market.

The wood physical and mechanical properties make it the ideal material to manufacture sleepers because it has the necessary strength and toughness to withstand heavy loads, but also has the flexibility that allows it to absorb vibration and "work" without crumbling or breaking. Wood is the “greener” and most environmentally friendly material for sleeper production because it is a renewable natural resource, the forest properly exploited regenerates alone, and a tree has to grow for many years to reach sufficient size to make a sleeper of it and during all those years the tree produced and sent oxygen into the atmosphere by capturing carbon dioxide instead of generating it as other products, the energy used to transform a tree on a sleeper is much less than that required to manufacture a sleeper of concrete, plastic or steel, in addition, once ending life, wooden sleepers decomposes naturally rejoining the ecosystem, while concrete can not be recycled and recycle plastic and steel is extremely expensive.

The use of a dual treatment EXTENDS the useful life of the sleeper by preserving with borates that have an excellent diffusion capable of penetrating 100% into the section of sleeper using water within the timber as a vehicle to be transported to the heart of the sleeper (step one). Subsequently the sleeper is seasoned covering the top layer of the batteries to avoid getting wet with rain water and finally pressure treated with creosote to encapsulate the borate and keep it inside the sleeper (step two).
