Operations - Shoals/Cherokee, AL

Opened in 2008 and located in the Shoals region of Alabama, the state-of-the-art production facility was designed to build a wide variety of railcar types. FreightCar announced its sub-lease of 25% of the Navistar, Inc. facility in February 2013 and began producing railcars in the second half of that year. Further, in December 2014, FreightCar announced plans for a $10 million expansion to add an additional production line at the facility. The initial sub-lease and execution of the capacity expansion increased FreightCar’s investment to approximately $33 million, covering about one-third of the entire manufacturing facility.  Currently, FreightCar has the capacity to build up to 8,000 railcars per year at the Cherokee, AL facility.
