QUALITY: Our premium quality products come with higher technical specifications.
Our products are manufactured with market leading tinplate gauge and quality, enabling us to achieve a higher specification pass on UN Dangerous Goods certification.
- Our 20L DG Approved Open Head Pails are manufactured using market leading 0.45mm tinplate gauge, and 7 roll bottom seam, which has allowed us to achieve at least an S.G pass of 1.4 on all our Packaging Group II certified pails and drums.
- We also use heavier tinplate gauge across our full tinplate packaging range.
Quality Control measures are in place to ensure consistent product quality which is vital in an industry that is highly regulated. All our tinplate packaging products are leak-tested using German engineered pressure testing machines prior to dispatch.

PACKAGING THE FUTURE
Current Market Conditions
The future of the steel packaging industry is evolving at a rapid rate within the Australian market. In recent years, can manufacturers have experienced an increased level of pressure to stay competitive in the market place.
Following the closure of Australia’s only local tinplate steel mill Bluescope Steel in April of 2007, local can manufacturers began sourcing raw materials from South East Asia.
With the exponential rise in the price of steel, fluctuating foreign exchange rates, and the aftermath of the Global Financial Crisis in 2008, Australian can manufacturers needed to adapt to remain competitive and relevant to the needs of their customer base.
Perennial Packaging has emerged as an alternative supplier in the industrial tinplate packaging market in recent years. With its key strength being the ability to handpick best available materials and components, and combine this with manufacturing functions outsourced to top factories in China – the world’s booming manufacturing hub.
Our continuous investment in product innovation enables us to keep abreast of industry trends for continuous growth and sustainability. This is particularly important in a market where manufacturing costs are on the rise and customers are trending towards customised solutions, products and services.
Into the Future
An opportunity exists for companies such as Perennial Packaging with off-shore manufacturing capabilities to provide cost-effective, flexible and forward thinking solutions.
Perennial Packaging’s distribution model enables:
- advanced manufacturing facilities, systems, processes and machinery located off-shore but managed internally;

St George College Graduate Exhibition, 2012 ‘Spectrum with Flying Colours’
“We initially connected with Perennial Packaging by recommendation from a local paint supplier. Perennial Packaging generously donated tin cans to sponsor the St George College Graduate Exhibition, 2012 – ‘Spectrum with Flying Colours’ showcasing the work of upcoming designers to the industry and the public. The tin cans were decorated in a variety of colours featuring the Spectrum with flying colours logo and used for installation and displays to reinforce the exhibition theme and concept of colour. It’s great to see local businesses supporting education in our community and encouraging the next generation of designers.”
