Southcoast Van Leer Texas, LLC, a joint venture partnership between Huhtamaki Van Leer and Southcoast Terminals, Inc., has opened America’s first co-located steel drum manufacturing and filling facility in Houston. The plant’s unique, single-site design eliminates freight requirements between the drum manufacturer and the filler — offering significant time and cost savings to customers. This “factory of the future” is the only place in the United States where drums move directly from a manufacturing line to a filling line.
