History: American Car and Foundry's insulated 17,360 gallon general service tank car was designed primarily for transporting chlorine. Paper manufacturing and water/sewage treatment are two traditional consumers of chlorine in tank cars. It's used to bleach paper and to disinfect water. On the paper side, you'd see it at mills that make white papers but not the kraft stock used for making paper bags, corrugated boxes, etc. Aside from paper bleaching and water treatment (both "new" and "used" water; chlorine is added to municipal water as it enters the pipe network, and is added as a disinfectant, following sewage treatment), another common use is in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries.

These cars can also be used to transport sulfur dioxide (used for paper recycling) and chloropicrin (used to fumigate soil).

ACF Industries LLC originally known as The American Car and Foundry Company and was formed in 1899. In 1955 ACF Industries, Incorporated became the new name for The American Car and Foundry. Over the years railcar manufacturing and leasing were the major forces in ACF's economic growth and stability. ACF has weathered many changes and is still committed to the manufacture of new railcar and railcar parts and sub-assemblies. ACF Industries LLC became a successor to ACF Industries, Incorporated on May 1, 2003.

ACF Industries LLC is a leader in the manufacture and fabrication of specialty railcar parts and miscellaneous steel products. While the Company's primary purpose is to compliment the new car and repair car market, it also provides manufacturing support to other manufacturers of steel products.

ACF Industries LLC is headquartered in St. Charles, Missouri and our manufacturing facility is located in Milton, Pennsylvania.
