Greif plans $45 million upgrade for Amherst County plant
Ohio-based Greif is planning a $45 million upgrade to its plant in Amherst County. The upgrade includes technology improvements that will significantly reduce energy used to make paper products.
Greif makes containers, packaging accessories and containerboard. It also provides packaging services for a wide range of industries and manages acreage in the United States.
Gov. Bob McDonnell approved a $350,000 performance-based grant from the Virginia Investment Partnership program for the project.
The Amherst plant has been in operation since 1975 and employs nearly 300 Virginians.
