Our Commitment to Employees

Amsted Rail is a family of companies that succeeds because of our family of employees. We are serious about providing every individual with a work environment that fosters professional growth, well-being and innovation – no matter what continent they are on.

Safety is one of our top priorities and our results confirm that. We have spent thousands of hours and invested heavily in our behavior-based safety program, utilizing the right mix of training, awareness, observation, follow-through and communication.

We thrive in a culture of relationship that enables us to understand each other through our differences and informs our interactions, confirming that what we do matters.
