TURKEY – Greif, an industrial packaging products and services provider, has opened an Intermediate Bulk Container (IBC) manufacturing facility in Dilovasi, Turkey.

This investment showcases Greif’s commitment to strengthening its global presence and expanding its reach to serve customers more efficiently in Turkey and the surrounding regions.

The Dilovasi facility spans a total area of 13,000 square meters, which includes state-of-the-art industrial infrastructure, manufacturing, and assembly lines.

It offers a comprehensive range of high-quality packaging solutions to meet the diverse needs of its valued customers in the food, chemicals, and lubricant industries.

Through this expansion, Greif reaffirms its commitment to excellence, continuous improvement, and providing exceptional customer service.

With the capability to meet the demanding IBC market in Turkey, Greif is also seeking to foster partnerships with local reconditioning companies for future sustainable solutions.
