Greif Announces Further Expansion Plans for Russia
New Steel Drum Production Plant
Situated 80km south west of Moscow in the fast-developing region of Kaluga, the plant will be Greif’s seventh steel drum production facility in Russia, and the largest of its kind in the country.
Equipped with the latest steel drum manufacturing technology, the new plant located on Vorsino Industrial Park will cover an area of 6000 square metres and is expected to create 50 new jobs. The central region of Russia was chosen because of its advantageous geographic location within the Moscow transportation hub and proximity to several of Greif’s key customers.
The new facility will feature an automatic steel drum line with a capacity of two million units per year. Additionally, in response to continued market growth, a further investment in the Vorsino site is planned for early 2019 with the launch of Greif’s second IBC line in Russia (after Kazan).
