Start your career with us today. Join Gunderson

At Greenbrier Gunderson, our strong industrial culture is celebrated throughout our organization.

Gunderson has a deep heritage of hard work and innovation. We first opened our doors in 1919, when Chet Gunderson founded Wire Wheel Sales and Service Company of Portland, Oregon. After Al Gunderson joined us in 1923, we became Gunderson Brothers and our operations grew into a leading steel fabricator that manufactured thousands of vital ship components during World War II.

During peacetime, we put our skills and abilities to work for a new cause. The barges and railcar underframes produced in the 40s and 50s transported goods and moved economies. In 1985, the former Gunderson Brothers operations was acquired by The Greenbrier Companies and has since established itself as a leader in engineering and manufacturing railcars and marine barges.

Today, we are the market leader in intermodal railcar production. Our team of industry experts use the latest engineering software, training programs and production techniques to continuously improve our manufacturing capabilities. The result: innovation that powers the highest quality designs and on-time delivery.

We’re proud of our dedication to quality and innovation. Our efforts have connected communities and countries around the world. We offer on-the-job training and a safety-focused work environment. Joining our workforce means more than starting a good job – it’s the first step to a great career.
