Help your Company be prepared for the Worst with 55 Gallon Drums

Natural disasters happen, and even minor thunderstorms in the right vicinity can knock out power, water and fuel for extended periods of time. When it comes to big companies that keep all of their systems running around the clock, there can be no chances of running out of water, electricity and fuel. Having additional means of fuel and water stored in 55 gallon drums can be crucial to maintaining company functionality during times of natural disaster. 

Having a back-up supply of water and fuel, stored in 55 gallon drums, can help to save your company from a loss of productivity. Our 55 gallon drums are sturdy and durable, and we have a variety of accessories to accommodate any industrial strength need. We provide a variety of drum heaters and drum mixers to ensure that your products will be properly stored and homogenized. A few of our additional 55 gallon drum accessories include drum trucks, drum dollies and drum handling equipment, to ensure that your employees will not be wasting time and energy trying to move large and heavy 55 gallon drums and other pieces of equipment. By keeping 55 gallon drums and other drum accessories on hand for emergencies, you ensure that your company’s production will not come to screeching halt in the event of a natural disaster or other unforeseeable circumstance. 

Don't let the production within your company suffer during a natural disaster because of a lack of materials and additional supplies, make sure you stock up on fuel and water in 55 gallon drums and be sure to purchase back-up generators to help produce power in the event that electricity is jeopardized. For more information about the 55 gallon drums and additional accessories that provides, contact us.

Hazmat Packaging Done Right

Hazmat (hazardous materials) shipping refers to shipments that involve materials that are either hazardous or potentially so.  You probably already knew that if you're in the market for hazmat packaging, but there's a quick refresher for all of you guys.  If you are going to be shipping anything that is hazardous, make sure that it is contained within packaging that meets both UN and United Parcel Service regulations.  

In order to meet the demanding needs of the industry, we have made available products that are 4GV UN approved and UPS and UN certified for shipping.  The 4GV approval means that you can transport Type I, II and III liquids and solids in them. When you pick out a packaging partner you want to makes sure you go with one that has a proven track record of complying with those regulations and providing packing supplies that protect shippers and the environment from the dangerous materials inside. Basco's got a history of doing so for thousands of customers around the world since being founded in 1946.  There's a load off of your mind and out of your warehouse.  

Take our one gallon paint can packaging supplies, for instance.  These bad boys are designed, tested and certified to meet or exceed international standards for transporting certain hazardous materials.  In addition to providing you with a rugged carton, we'll also set you up with foam and locking rings to ensure that your paint cans arrive undamaged to their ultimate destination.  And if you need the actual can(s), we've got those too.  As you can see, we're equipped to handle every level of your hazmat packaging needs.
