Eagle Railcar is looking to add another 35 employees. 

About five years ago, Eagle Rail was recruited to Wichita Falls and currently has about 160 employees and continues to grow. 

This is the third expansion in those five years. 

The city council voted to assist in adding these jobs and every time they’ve expanded, Eagle Rail has hit their hiring projections.

“High paying jobs. Some of them are management jobs and they are going to spend a couple million more dollars investing in mostly new track,” Wichita Falls Chamber of Commerce CEO Henry Florsheim said.

Acquiring additional property and laying new track in the yard out there so they can accommodate what they call a unit train.”

Florsheim said Eagle Rail officials are looking to fill these jobs as soon as possible.
