In 1951 in a small vacant warehouse in Lodi, New Jersey our founder Seymour Zilbert began remanufacturing wooden barrels from the liquor companies and marketing them to the chemical industry. With a crew of 5 drum makers, Mr. Zilbert led the company by example. He worked long hours starting up the plant in the morning, making sales calls, driving the delivery truck, and at night he did the accounting.


In 1967 he moved to a larger facility in Kearney, New Jersey and began reconditioning metal drums and distributing plastic drums. In 1973 Mr. Zilbert installed the first rotational molding machine to manufacture his own design of plastic drums. Eventually in 1984 a second manufacturing facility was purchased in Yemassee, South Carolina and thus the birth of Dixie Poly Drum Corporation.


Today Dixie Poly Drum is operated by it’s president and CEO Beth Zilber and General Manager Dennis Johnson. We are a privately held company with the mentality and flexibility to believe the customer is number one and we can fill his needs.


Over the years Dixie Poly Drum has become a leading manufacturer of safety and material handling products such as SUPER SHIPPER poly chemical drums, GUARD DOG building protection, POLY-CADE traffic barriers, STEP AND STORE step stools and work platforms, BIG MOUTH secondary containment, and TRANSCHEM chemical tanks.


The concept of high quality and innovative new products is no stranger to Dixie Poly Drum, meeting quality expectations of fortune 500 customers and presenting 5 or more new products a year are not only our goals but our expectations. With Solid Works design software and our engineering staff combined with our in house mold making capabilities and supported by our metal fabrication department there are many new and creative products in our future.


The philosophy of our company is quite simple "MAKE IT AS SIMPLE AS POSSIBLE FOR THE CUSTOMER TO PURCHASE OUR PRODUCTS". This philosophy is supported by our extremely tight quality control, new product development, quick ship inventory system, marketing programs, and customer and technical service second to none.
