About us

Fibrestar Drums Ltd

The largest producer of fibre drums in the UK, previously operating from our Disley site from 1948 to 2013, Fibresatr have recently relocated to exciting new facilities in Hazel Grove, Stockport.

Fibrestar Drums (formerly Rexam Drums) are the largest UK producer of fibre drums. Experience and technical knowledge is used to the full, when matching product or packaging requirements with a corresponding customised fibre drum.

A comprehensive range of open top fibre drums are produced, in sizes from 5 litres up to 270 litres capacity and in a wide range of diameters, heights and styles. Our All Fibre range is available in both round and square profiles.

Fibre drums are used globally and offer a strong, cost effective means for the packaging of solid, paste, powder or semi-liquid products. Fibre drums are widely used by the chemical, pharmaceutical, foodstuff and intermediate product industries.

Hazardous products can be packed in fibre drums, since they are approved to UN Transport of Dangerous Goods regulations for solid based products.

Fibrestar Drums are accredited to ISO9001 : 2008 and are a leading member of SEFFI, the European Fibre Drum Association and the IPA, the leading UK trade organisation for Industrial Packaging. Both organisations aim to improve environmental awareness and to influence world-wide legislation on transport and recovery of fibre drums.
