This is an important piece of North Coast

Container’s strategy, and one of the bigger

reasons the company is ahead of its competition.

“Steel drums have to pass a drop test, where they

are dropped from x-meters above the ground and

expected to maintain their integrity. If they don’t

pass this test, most manufacturers would make

the metal thicker.

“Instead we can say to the client ‘What if we can

make your container with thinner metals and

still make it meet your requirements?’ All of the

pieces of these drums, including the rings, are

all designed for them to be produced with less


There’s already so much that sets North Coast

Container apart from its competitors. But

Deutsch believes that being an independently

owned company free from stockholders is one

of the principal ways the company can delight


“We’re not performing for stockholders, we’re

performing for customers. Every decision we

make is based on customer needs. It makes

a tremendous difference in how we run our

company in this industry.”
