G&W Customers Invested $1.6B in Industrial Projects Last Year

Customers of Genesee & Wyoming railroads invested $1.6 billion on 45 new industrial projects across its rail network in 2020 the company said in a news release.

The release said this resulted in the generation of more than 800 jobs in communities across its network of 116 short line railroads.

Among those projects was a new facility for shipping automobiles in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and another facility for recycling zinc in Cass County, Indiana.

In a statement G&W Chief Commercial Officer Mike Peters said investments such as these are “testimony not only to the critical role of rail transportation in the supply chain, but also to the commitment and resiliency of our customers during the challenges of a global pandemic.”
