IBC manufacturer adds blow moulding machine in Morocco / Increased output of jerry cans for lubricants market
US-based Greif (Delaware, Ohio;, an industrial packaging and container manufacturer, has invested a “large” sum in a new blow moulding machine at its plant in Casablanca / Morocco. The equipment, which Greif said uses 30% less energy than older generation machines and is designed to offer significantly higher productivity levels, will manufacture plastic jerry cans, increasing capacity by up to 25% for its one to five litre bottles for the lubricants market. The Casablanca facility produces jerry cans of up to 25 litres, serving the lubricants, chemical and agro-food industries.

“This investment guarantees supply to our customers as we experience continuing high demand for our blow-moulded bottles,” said Abdennour El Mosor, Greif’s regional manager for Middle East and North Africa.

In April 2019, Greif added a blow moulding machine at its plant in Ede / The Netherlands – see of 24.04.2019. This doubled production capacity for food-grade intermediate bulk containers (IBCs).
