Janus Vaten’s total conceptJanus Vaten

Not only is Janus Vaten a producer of metal drums, the team is actively involved in the entire lifecycle of the drums. We believe the reuse of packaging is important. We can therefore also assist with the collection of packaging. In addition, we have a separate department for the reconditioning of steel drums. We are also responsible for recycling the packaging at the end of the lifecycle, so that new steel tight-head drums can be developed. Because we handle transport and production inhouse, we are able to deliver flexible, creative and fast customisation.
