BURTON UPON TRENT, UK — Greif, a provider of industrial packaging products and services, announced the introduction of a new line of specialty steel and stainless steel drum types at its Burton upon Trent plant in the UK.

The UK facility has a long history of producing UN and non-UN stainless steel drums. This product line has now been expanded to include both tight head and open head drums in sizes ranging from five liters to 250 liters capacities.

The expanded product line means Greif can better serve customers in the food and beverage, pharmaceutical, personal care, flavors, and fragrance industries, which demand stringent packaging requirements, and underlines Greif’s commitment to its customers in these markets.

Tim Higham, Specialty Sales Manager at Greif UK, commented, “We are constantly seeking new ways to meet customers’ expectations and market demand which is what has led us to expand our range.

“Our stainless steel drums are a high integrity option for the food, pharmaceutical and chemical industries,” he continued. “Stainless steel offers a high level of chemical resistance and can provide a flawlessly pure and sanitary performance.”

Greif holds a prominent position within the industrial packaging industry in the UK. The facility in Burton upon Trent has been involved in drum making since the early 1900s and has a workforce of 60 employees. The company recently achieved ISO 9001:2015 certification.
