We pride ourselves on being a global industry leader in innovation.

Greenbrier manufactures and repairs virtually every type of freight railcar, and we maintain a full-service wheels, axles and parts network. Greenbrier Gunderson — our flagship facility in Portland, Oregon — also manufactures a wide range of Jones Act ocean-going barges and river barges for freight transportation along with other industrial and marine-related products.

Greenbrier’s leasing business enables us to offer flexible financing programs to our customers in North America. These leasing options are complemented by our freight railcar management services offerings, making Greenbrier the most comprehensive freight railcar management solutions provider in North America, managing over 372,000 railcars.

Every day, our actions are shaped by our priorities.

  • Safety
  • Quality
  • Respect for People

These priorities speak to our people, our products, our customers and our communities.

Greenbrier has a heritage that spans 100 years, evolving from a steel fabricating company in Portland, Oregon into a global manufacturing and transportation services corporation.
