Stainless Steel Drum Industry Parts & Accessories

For almost forty years, Con-Tech procurement outsourcing has provided the stainless steel drum industry with reliable, cost-effective security through a wide variety of stainless steel drum products and services essential to the production of both open and closed head drums.

The steel drum market is projected to grow 4.27% between 2021 to 2028 with North America dominating the market due in part to increased demand for food. Whether carbon steel or stainless steel, steel drums are highly sought-after as a packaging solution across various industries as they are recyclable, safe, cost-effective, easy to handle, and with excellent fire resistance properties. Stainless steel drums last longer and are not prone to rust or contamination. They are also durable, impart no flavor to wine and are easy to clean making them a favorite of winemakers.

Did You Know?

World War I tripled the fledgling steel drum industry to more than 30 manufacturers by the end of the war. By the late 1930s, the 55-gallon, 18-gauge steel drum was an essential container. Demand boosted production and fostered innovation. In 1905, the American Steel Barrel Company, with Nellie Bly at its helm, was awarded the first patent for the straight-sided 55-gallon drum.
