ALUSUISSE'S SHELBYVILLE PACKAGING PLANT REBOUNDS QUICKLY AFTER ACCIDENT

 BELLWOOD, Ill., Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Alusuisse Flexible Packaging, Inc. reported today that its Shelbyville, Ky., plant returned to full production a week after an accident on Aug. 30. "The entire plant was shut down for several days while we conducted a thorough review of all safety systems," said Joseph J. Baksha, the company's executive vice president and chief operating officer. "We were able to resume working in our shipping, receiving and finishing areas on Sept. 1, and the facility was fully operational by Sept. 7."
 "The fact that we made it though the week with a minimum amount of disruption in deliveries is a testament to our employees in Shelbyville and our two other packaging plants, and the strong working relationship we have with our customers and suppliers," said Thomas B. Grey Jr., vice president for sales and marketing.
 The accident, an explosion in the plant's parts washing room, resulted in the death of one worker and the injury of four others. Baksha, who went directly to Shelbyville to supervise the company's activities, said, "At a time like this, our greatest concern remains focused on those injured, their families and the safety of all our employees."
