 “We are pleased with the continuation of record-breaking sales in fiscal year 2019”, stated CEO Warren Kruger. Kruger continued, “These sales reflect customer satisfaction with the quality of Greystone’s pallets. We anticipate robust fourth quarter sales due primarily to the seasonality of the brewery business plus increased sales to our major customers.”

 “Progress to improve our gross profits has been delayed due to finalization of design for automation on two production lines and unexpected delays in delivery of equipment which will increase our in-house capability to refine plastic resin. We expect these improvements to commence operation by May 31, 2019. Additionally, the latest acquisition of an injection molding machine is expected to become operational during the fourth quarter.”

Greystone Logistics is a "Green" manufacturing company that reprocesses recycled plastic and designs, manufactures, sells high quality 100% recycled plastic pallets that provide logistical solutions needed by a wide range of industries such as the food and beverage, automotive, chemical, pharmaceutical and consumer products. The Company's technology, including that used in its injection molding equipment, proprietary blend of recycled plastic resins and patented pallet designs, allows production of high quality pallets more rapidly and at lower costs than many processes. The recycled plastic for its pallets helps control material costs while reducing environmental waste and provides cost advantages over users of virgin resin.
