“This is a fantastic opportunity for TRG to expand our capabilities and solutions for our customers” said Bob McIlvaine, CEO. “Progress Container is a well-respected name in our industry and their commitment to high graphics solutions and state-of-the-art equipment further enhances our mission statement to provide value added solutions to the most demanding customers.”
