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 400,000 railcars.
Every day, our actions are shaped by our priorities.
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.

Our Integrated Business Model
Our Integrated Business Model combines manufacturing, leasing and management, and wheels, parts and repair services into a comprehensive set of freight railcar solutions. We believe our integrated model is difficult to duplicate and provides greater value for our customers, allowing us to grow our footprint around the world.
In 2018 alone, The Greenbrier Companies donated more than $700,000 and 22,000 hours to non-profit organizations that make a direct impact in the communities where we do business across the globe.
“We’re proud of our commitment to making an impact in our local communities, and we challenge ourselves to do more every year.”
– William A. Furman, Chairman & CEO, The Greenbrier Companies
