Speed-Rail is a registered trademark and line of aluminum slip on pipe fittings of the Hollaender company. Located in Cincinnati, Ohio, Pete Hollaender founded the company in 1930 and by 1946 developed and held patents to a wide line of slip on fittings. By 1958, the Hollaender company purchased an aluminum foundry to manufacture the fittings and the line of Nu-Rail® (pictured below), Speed-Rail®, (pictured above), and others became well known products.
