Our History

Looking for transcription? We’ve been at it for over 25 years.

CAS Associates, Inc. is a woman-owned transcription corporation located in Emerson, Iowa. Formed in 1995, CAS Associates, Inc. originally started operations in the basement of our founder’s home (Marcia Cain).

Since inception, we have acquired multiple contracts from various railroad entities making our business what it is today.  We now have several company-wide contracts with multiple railroads among other entities. Over the years, we’ve learned that railroads are the backbone of America. When railroads are busy, this country is thriving and vice versa.  As a result, this industry has ebbs and tides – ups and downs.

We believe the reason for our success is because our team is 100% dedicated to providing top-notch service consistently. We’ve expanded by adding additional railroads and have been fortunate to work with the State of Iowa in various departments. Our expertise and history of dealing with rule books, disciplinary process, audio/digital files and union agreements (often with very short union agreement timelines) has allowed us to fill a niche for the railroad/transportation industry.



Providing quality, timely service to our vendors is what we do, who we’ve been and who we will continue to be.
