Delivering Innovative Engineering and Construction / Fabrication Services

Lukay Research and Development Ltd. (LRDL) is a prime engineering consulting firm that provides a broad range of engineering services in mechanical and industrial design. Rail Shop Services Inc. (RSSI) is LRDL’s associate company that fabricates, installs, operates and maintains products that LRDL designs. With our unique blend of scientific knowledge, practical experience and specialized skills, we develop innovative engineering solutions for tough industrial problems.


We have a long history of working with the railroad industry, and have gained a comprehensive understanding of railroad options, terminology, and industry practices and concerns.

Process Management

From pharmaceuticals to waste oil distillation, LRDL has the solution to handle the most unique of industrial processes. Drawing from our long history of rail yard waste water treatment plant design and installation, we are able to harness a variety of techniques to transform a process input into an output that meets government regulations or client standards for purity.

Municipal Stormwater Management

Using our knowledge and experience in process and fluid management, we have designed and installed reliable automated pumping stations for municipalities. From conceptual design to detailed calculations to procurement and installation, we provide a robust yet cost-effective solution. Being based out of Alberta, Canada gives us the advantage of having a solid understanding of northern climate conditions that have a significant impact on system performance.

Comprehensive Engineering Services

Edmonton-based LRDL has been serving clients in Alberta, Saskatchewan, British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario, and Quebec since 1970. We are known for our expertise in mechanical design — specializing in plant engineering and railroad plant infrastructure design. RSSI started operations in 2007 to better serve our clients by constructing LRDL’s designs.
