Greif Resuming Operations in Houston Area

Date: 2017-08-30

Greif is pleased to report that our steel, plastic, fibre drum and chemical filling services that were impacted by Hurricane Harvey are returning to operation.  Operation may be limited depending on access to transportation, raw material, or other external services like export shipping Ports.

We will keep the safety of our people as the top priority as we resume operations and meet our customers’ needs.

Regional VP Tom Newman says, “We are fortunate that our  facilities were spared significant damage and are operational.  We expect all sites to be at full capability by Tuesday, September 5.  Our sites outside of the immediate Houston area were not impacted and are continuing at full production capacity.”
