Innovative container systems since 1740.


Since 1740, UCON CONTAINER SYSTEM has continuously developed into a global manufacturer of standardized and specialized IBC and container systems to meet the requirements of our customers.

Since February 2024, the local management team has taken over UCS and is now running the company independently and with respect for its long history .

The strategy is focused on special containers and container systems, innovation and service. So that we pursue the goal of offering our customers solutions that make their value creation more efficient and thus and thus not only enable sustainable production, but also significantly support the business model.

We consider the entire material flow from delivery, filling and decanting or dosing, cleaning and storage through to the transportation of our customers’ bulk materials and liquid products.

Sustainability, environmental protection and occupational health and safety guide our actions. This is shown not only by our solutions and our stainless steel products, but also the way we act and think during the solution implementation.


As a leading provider of container systems, UCON places sustainability at the heart of its product development.

With a high-quality, fully recyclable stainless steel IBC, UCS Container Systems is driving forward the development of the circular economy as described in the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This focus on sustainable innovation goes hand in hand with our efforts to guarantee the highest quality and safety. The stainless steel IBC not only offers a safe solution for workers and the environment, but also enables a reliable production process for the customer. The high ease of cleaning prevents cross-contamination and ensures the highest quality and safety of our customers’ products.
