Greif Expands CorrChoice Sheet Feeder Network

DELAWARE, Ohio-- Greif, Inc. (NYSE: GEF, GEF.B), a global leader and industrial packaging solutions provider, announced today that it plans to expand its CorrChoice sheet feeder network with the addition of a new facility. The new world class operation will operate a corrugator and a litho-laminator line, consistent with CorrChoice’s strategy to provide the most responsive service available in the industry on complex orders.    

 “This investment enables Greif to continue our growth with existing strategic customers while providing more responsive service on a broader range of products,” said Tim Bergwall, Group President, Paper Packaging & Services. “This latest CorrChoice expansion better positions us to provide comprehensive supply of containerboard, sheets, and specialty products to corrugated converters.”

The new facility will be located in the Mid-Atlantic region, offering easy access to several of Greif’s key markets and is expected to enhance transportation efficiencies for both of Greif’s paper mills. The operation is expected to employ 80 colleagues and will be sized similarly to existing CorrChoice locations.
