Stocks in this article: GEF

DELAWARE, Ohio, Nov. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Veteran industry leaders across two continents have come together to create EarthMinded™ Life Cycle Services (EarthMinded LCS), now the largest industrial packaging reconditioner in the world. EarthMinded LCS is developing new technology and business approaches to transform industrial container reconditioning and help industrial packaging users achieve their sustainability objectives.  

EarthMinded LCS includes Greif, Inc. subsidiary pack2pack (p2p) with eight sites in seven countries across Europe, and Container Life Cycle Management (CLCM) in North America, a joint venture composed of Greif, IndyDrum, Drumco of Arkansas and Drumco of Tennessee. The EarthMinded LCS network in North America also includes Container Management Services covering the western United States, West Texas Drum Company covering the Gulf Coast, Mid-America Steel Drum Co., Inc. covering the Upper Midwest and Great Western Containers covering Canada. Each leader in the network was chosen based on expertise, environmentally responsible practices, reputation and commitment to satisfying the customer.  EarthMinded LCS intends to expand its network globally with service providers who meet its strict standards for industry-leading expertise and stewardship practices. It also expects to expand through acquisitions and green field development.

"We bring greater simplicity, efficiency, flexibility and world-class quality in reconditioning services and related products to customers," said EarthMinded LCS President Dano Lister. "We also help customers compete more effectively in an increasingly resource-constrained and regulated world.

"Through our proprietary technology we provide customers with verifiable reports detailing the reduced environmental impact of their industrial packaging entrusted to us. These reports allow our customers to document their achievements and meet the growing demand for more sustainable packaging."

EarthMinded LCS is committed to operating responsibly, protecting the environment as well as the health and safety of its people. The business is building on its aggregate history of developing and employing transformative technologies to redefine what constitutes environmentally responsible reconditioning, remanufacturing and recycling practices.
