About Us
Midwest Railcar Corporation was founded in 1998 by current President and CEO Richard Murphy as a company specializing in leasing, management and brokerage of commercial freight railcars to shippers, railroads as well as other third party users.

Recognizing the opportunities available to Midwest Railcar Corporation to become a leader in the railcar leasing and management industry, Richard Murphy made the long term strategic decision to sell Midwest Railcar Corporation to Marubeni Corporation in November of 2006. With the support provided by its financially strong shareholder, Marubeni Corporation, along with Midwest Railcar Corporation’s dedicated and experienced professionals; the company would gain the capital and human resources to support its mission to be: "A first class leader in the Railcar Leasing Industry committed to exceeding the expectations of our customers through quality performance and integrity with a relentless pursuit of enduring customer satisfaction."

Since that time, Midwest Railcar Corporation has grown to become a premier railcar leasing and management company. Currently Midwest Railcar Corporation handles a railcar fleet of approximately 20,000 railcars while providing a wide range of car types and railcar management solutions tailored to each customer’s specific needs.

In June of 2016, Midwest Railcar Corporation and its shareholder Marubeni Corporation made another long term strategic decision to bring on an additional shareholder, Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Group. With the addition of this new strategic partner, Midwest Railcar Corporation is poised to continue its strong growth and performance.

Midwest Railcar Corporation’s combination of top tier equipment, services and personnel allows our customers to focus on their business while leaving the complexities of railcar ownership and management to us.
