Myers Container Corp. announced this month the opening of a 60,000-square-foot steel drum factory in City of Industry, Calif. The new plant replaces an existing 93,000 sq. ft. plant located outside Los Angeles in nearby Huntington Park.

The new plant features state-of-the-art equipment designed to minimize air emissions and energy consumption.
