MAUSER NCG Acquires US Steel Drum Reconditioner

The MAUSER Group has announced the acquisition of Burbank Barrel and Drum (BBD) in Houston, Tex. BBD is the largest steel drum reconditioner in the Gulf area with over 60 years of operating history. Supporting the Group’s global sustainability initiative, this transaction will also enhance the growth strategy of National Container Group (NCG), the MAUSER subsidiary for reusable container solutions throughout the world.

Located in the Houston industrial corridor, BBD offers reconditioned open head and closed head reconditioned steel drums as well as new steel and plastic containers. “With the added resources and leadership of MAUSER/NCG, we will continue to expand our dominant position in the Gulf area,” said Robert L. Cullins Jr., who will stay on to manage Burbank’s operations.

In December 2010, MAUSER Group entered the North American steel drum reconditioning market through the acquisition of American Container Net (ACN), with facilities in Pittsburgh, PA, Providence, RI and Richmond VA. “The acquisition of BBD is a pivotal step towards expanding our steel drum reconditioning footprint across North America,” said Peter Schaefer, Global Head of NCG.
