Seven high-performance facilities
In June 2017, The Greenbrier Companies, Inc. (NYSE: GBX) and Astra Rail Management GmbH merged and began operating under the name Greenbrier Europe. It covers the activities of Greenbrier’s European operations headquartered in Świdnica, Poland and Arad, Romania. It is led by an experienced Europe-based management team from both companies.
