It’s the holiday season and your inboxes and web ads are probably chocked full of so-called ‘perfect’ gifts or ‘one-size-fits-all’ presents. Well, what if we told you there was a one-size-fits-all industrial container? Well, we’d be lying, but not fully. The 55 gallon drum may not be one-size-fits-all, but it is the overwhelming industry favorite. 

The 55 gallon drum, especially in stainless steel, is the most popular size and configuration container for a diverse range of uses. We call it the workhorse of the line up. It’s not too big, not too small, and is just right for packing, storing and shipping a variety of solids, liquids and, with the right treatment, even hazardous materials.

At Skolnik, we build all of our containers thicker, heavier and stronger than industry standards. Our 55 gallon drum is available in stainless steel, carbon steel, seamless steel and in salvage drums and stainless steel wine barrels. The closures and fittings are all customizable for your needs.

While we love our 55 gallon drums and they are the overwhelming favorite, that doesn’t necessarily mean they are the right drum for your use. Contact us and our team of experts will help guide you to the right container size, material and configuration for your business. We love our near one-size-fits-all container, but we also relish the opportunity to engineer and manufacture a custom barrel for your unique needs.
