Rieke - North America

The origins of Rieke Packaging Systems date back to 1921, when Theodore W. Rieke revolutionised the steel drum industry by creating the flange closure which could be inserted without brazing, required no fusing of metals, was easily replaced, and prevented excessive scrap.

This was the first in a continuing line of technical breakthroughs, major innovations and groundbreaking developments that have characterised the growth and diversification of the company over the years.

Today, as part of the multinational TriMas Corporation, our founder’s spirit of entrepreneurialism remains very much a driving force within our business, as we continually seek to develop new and innovative packaging solutions to meet our customer’s needs.
