About Us

With the experience of over 60 years, Thai Metal Drum Manufacturing Public Company Limited (TMD) is the first manufacturer of new steel drums in Thailand. TMD was established in 1958 to engage in the manufacturing and distribution of 200 litre steel drums for storing and transporting of most types of liquid substances such as petrochemical products, lubricant oils, food products and agricultural products.

In 1994, TMD became a public company as well as diversified into the business of plastic products by establishing the PET Company Limited to manufacture and distribute variety of plastic products such as PET bottles, preform tubes, corrugated sheets and drum caps.

In 2006, TMD relocated its factory to Wellgrow Industrial Estate in Chachoengsao province and purchased an entire new set of the most advanced drum manufacturing machines.
