RIPA’s biennial report on industrial container reconditioning in the U.S. presents summary data on the annual production of reconditioned steel and plastic 55-gallon drums as well as 275- and 330-gallon composite “intermediate bulk containers” (IBCs). Data reported are for calendar year 2019. This report also profiles the container reconditioning industry in terms of industry practices, processes used, equipment used, employee training, markets served, customer service and regulatory compliance. The association last conducted a similar survey for calendar year 2017 as well as other surveys every 2 years preceding that date.
The report can be used by RIPA members to benchmark their own operations as compared to other, similar businesses. The RIPA study is the only one of its kind produced by the industry itself.
