Containers for flood victims

Specialist in industrial packaging supports Halle an der Saale in dealing with the floods:
Assistance in the form of fresh water supplied via IBCs

Altenkirchen, 13. Juni 2013 – Whilst the flooding situation has eased somewhat in certain areas, the situation in the north of Germany continues to be a dramatic one – as is the case in Saxony-Anhalt. Thousands of helpers are present here in the day-to-day efforts dealing with the floods. WERIT Kunststoffwerke has supported their commitment by providing intermediate bulk containers (IBC). These containers provided the helpers with fresh water as part of an emergency supply.

Each day, more and more people are being brought to safety from the floods. The regular supply chain for electricity, drinking water and food has been interrupted in many places. WERIT is therefore playing a supporting role for the region of Halle / Saale by providing a supply of fresh water on site to both helpers and victims via IBCs.

Stefan Brand, Test Centre Manager of TÜV Rheinland Industrieservice GmbH, explained: "We asked WERIT for help because we desperately needed fresh water on site. The company got involved immediately and the IBCs that we requested arrived soon after in Halle. We were also asked to provide further help, because it is important to stick together in such a situation."
