Germany-based MAUSER Group, a worldwide industrial packaging company, recently opened its new fiber drum plant in North America at The Woodlands, Texas, as an addition to its other manufacturing facilities in the Lone Star State.
The company said the opening of its fiber drum plant allows it to expand its presence as a worldwide leader in industrial packaging. Located adjacent to MAUSER’s plastic drum facility in The Woodlands, Texas, its new fiber drum plant provides customers in the southwestern United States with lock ring fiber drums, with diameters ranging from 14" to 23" and in a variety of materials and lids.
"The market continues to ask for MAUSER fiber drums," said Mark Zymon, General Manager, MAUSER Fiber. "Customers value our poly overlay technology which prevents corrosion and rusting of the top chime and therewith improves product quality. We also incorporate our safety chime design on all our top chimes as well as a double hemmed lock ring design to reduce cuts when handling and opening our drums. And of course we groove all our chimes which provides superior quality finish versus crimping."
"As our customers continue to grow and require diverse packaging solutions for their products, we will continue to grow with them," said Siegfried Weber, Sr. VP Global Sales and Marketing, MAUSER North America. "Fiber drums are an important component of our product offerings in North America and this new plant completes our family of products here in the southwestern United States." Additional packaging formats available in Texas include plastic drums from The Woodlands, as well as steel drums and IBC’s from Houston, Texas, which is less than 30 miles away.
Business in The Woodlands master planned community are eligible for state sales and use tax credits, local and state job creation grants, Texas Enterprise Zone tax abatements and Freeport Tax Exemptions.
