Gunderson, LLC Key Developments

Gunderson, LLC Plans to Lay Off 200-Plus Gunderson Jobs

The Greenbrier Companies Inc. announced that it plans to lay off more than 200 workers at its Gunderson LLC plant in Northwest Portland, Stymied by delays in a coal export proposal and by a railcar customer's buying habits. The layoffs, or furloughs as Greenbrier CEO Bill Furman prefers to call them, will start within a few months. Meanwhile, the company plans to move a 50-person office from downtown Portland's Albers Mill Building to its Lake Oswego headquarters in October. The actions come as Furman, under pressure to boost shareholder value at the $1.8 billion company, grows increasingly frustrated with Portland and Oregon as places to do business. Job cuts at Gunderson, which employs 817 people, stem in part from customer TTX Co.'s reduced interest in buying the intermodal railcars produced there.
