Rentals of Intermediate Bulk Containers Continue Strong into New Year

December 20, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
MILLSTONE TWP., NJ With 2011 quickly wrapping up, Metano IBC Services, Inc. foresees that rentals of intermediate bulk containers will remain on an upswing that began earlier this year.

"The trend in increased rentals that began over the summer has not only continued but is doing so at an even faster pace," said Tom Wilkins, president of the New Jersey-based distributor of intermediate bulk containers. "We've seen accelerated rentals among existing customers and new customers."

Since many Metano clients have reported relatively flat sales, Wilkins attributed the increased interest in intermediate bulk containers to a growing understanding of the tanks' advantages.

"A larger number of businesses are turning from steel drums to intermediate bulk containers, which represent a more cost-effective method of transporting and storing liquids," he said.

Other advantages that appeal to businesses that rent IBCs include:

  • Ease of filling
  • Less residue after emptying
  • Ease of transport
  • Fewer disposal concerns

  • "As an increasing number of chemical distributors and personal care product makers learn about these benefits, we expect interest in intermediate bulk containers to continue to rise," Wilkins said.
