OUR STORY

Since 1911, Behrens has been producing the highest quality metal containers. The majority of our products are manufactured in the United States with a plant and distribution facility located in Winona, Minnesota. When there is work to do, tools are needed.

FORGING THE FUTURE

Highly durable, weather, chemical and rodent resistant Behrens products are 100% recyclable. When metal products reach the end of their useful life, the materials are simply collected and recycled, again and again, with no loss of their inherent properties.

NOT ALL STEEL IS CREATED EQUAL.

Behrens steel is more durable than plastic and resistant to:

RODENTS

RUST

ODOR

Metalware Classics

SIMPLY A BETTER CHOICE THAN PLASTIC

Proudly made in Winona, Minnesota, Behrens is committed to creating industrial metalware, using the best galvanized materials, craftsmanship and design. Our handcrafted products often involve age-old techniques and traditional methods of production. Our Cans, Tubs, Pails and specialty products carry a rich history of use, often passed down through generations. You can trust Behrens, as our skills have been honed with over 100 years of practice.

GALVANIZED SHEET VS. HOT DIPPED

Galvanized Sheet Steel – Coils of sheet steel are galvanized at the mill. Coating thickness is more consistent.
Hot Dipped Galvanizing – The container is dipped in a bath of molten zinc to coat and seal. Zinc protects from rust and corrosion.

THE BEHRENS DIFFERENCE

We’re proud of the work we do. So much that we emboss each lid with our brand name. When you purchase a Behrens can, it comes with a sturdy lid – made to stay in place and not blow away. Made of the highest quality galvanized steel – heavy-duty, durable, and long-lasting.
