Founded in 1898 with a modest fleet of 48 railcars, GATX has grown to become one of the premier lessors of railcars globally. Throughout our history, we have made strategic shifts, expanded globally, acquired and divested from many different businesses, but we have remained steadfast in our dedication to delivering top-notch solutions and services that meet the unique needs of our customers. At GATX, our unwavering commitment to safety, integrity, and service has been at the core of our operations since our inception. We recognize that these values are critical to the success of our business and the trust that our customers place in us.
As we celebrated this achievement, we were proud of our legacy of excellence, innovation, and ingenuity. We remain committed to driving forward with the same passion and determination that propelled us to the forefront of the industry for over a century, and we look forward to continuing to serve our customers with the highest standards of quality and service for many years to come.
