• JF Hillebrand donate Flexitanks for Haiti aid

March 18, 2010 -- Following the devastating earthquake that struck Chile 6th March, JF Hillebrand has donated 50 bulk flexitanks to the earthquake relief effort. The tanks, which would normally be used to transport bulk wine, are being used to distribute clean water supplies to residents in areas affected by the earthquake.

Although JF Hillebrand's office and warehouse in Chile were hit by the earthquake, they suffered relatively minor damage and were able to resume near-normal operations within a few days.
