“Over the last 26 years, MBC has established a strong reputation in the industrial packaging and reconditioning industry for quality, service, and efficiency,” said Brian McCarthy, SVP, Market Development, TricorBraun. “Partnering with MBC is a tremendous opportunity to continue to provide our customers with more sustainable options. We look forward to welcoming Mark Schwietz and his team to the TricorBraun family and investing in the company’s continued growth.”

Sustainable packaging and environmentally-safe collection options are the core of MBC’s services. The company specializes in the reconditioning and recycling of industrial containers, including steel and plastic barrels, drums, and intermediate bulk containers (IBCs). Reconditioned and recycled packaging helps customers reduce their environmental impact while using an effective yet lower-cost alternative to new purchases.

“We have great respect for the TricorBraun team and share their passion for serving customers,” said Mark Schwietz, president, Mark’s Barrel Co. “Partnering with TricorBraun will allow us to take our company to the next step in our growth—for the benefit of our team members and customers. We are excited to join the TricorBraun team.”

All MBC team members will remain with TricorBraun following the transaction and will continue to work out of the company’s existing location near Salt Lake City, in a facility customized to responsibly support the reconditioning and recycling processes. Effective upon closing of the transaction, Mark’s Barrel Co. will operate as TricorBraun Industrial Services.
