Hessentaler stays flexible
Originally published:  27/06/2012
Noting "lower production volumes in the chemical industry," Germany's HC Hessentaler Container reports that "the economic crisis has slowed the market". However, it expects the situation to gradually improve, although probably not within the next 12 months. Selling to the chemical, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, glue and food industries, the company specialises in the production of multi-trip composite intermediate bulk containers (IBCs). "After the duration of five years," it says, "we offer our customers the installation of a new tank and the repair of the metal frame/box if necessary." As a result, "no completely new IBC needs to be purchased in order to renew the runtime for another five years".
As well as conventional IBCs, the company also offers, among other things, single part delivery, offshore units and vehicle-mounted designs. It also undertakes "custom solutions" for specialist applications, including units with wheels and special adapters and valves. A highly flexible company, it can produce such units in small production runs if so required.
