Greenbrier Hiring 260 Workers in Portland, Oregon to Support Railcar Order
The company will call back furloughed workers and seek new hires. It will also divert about 175 workers from its marine barge construction operations at Gunderson to the railcar production. That decision results from the new orders, as well as a lull in the marine craft sector.
Greenbrier will build 53-foot double-stack well railcar containers as part of the order.
"The recent orders for double-stack equipment represent the early signs of a restoration in demand for this car type," said Greenbrier President and CEO William A. Furman. "These recent developments show the value of our flexible work force and the importance of our diversification efforts in recent years."
