Drumbeaters Company

Our History

Established in 1991, Drumbeaters initially manufactured drum crushers to decrease the volume of steel drums for disposal or recycling not only for Crown but also for other companies through their sister company, Crown Fluid Applies Systems, and other local businesses. This endeavor led to the origin of the name “Drumbeaters” and marked the start of their journey.

The founders of Drumbeaters have leveraged their extensive experience to view waste handling and recycling as an opportunity to creatively address customers' waste challenges in unconventional ways. Drumbeaters aims to minimize waste volume and, wherever possible, completely eradicate waste through recycling or zero waste systems.

Our Location

Our company is staffed by mechanical and electrical engineers and operates a prototype fabrication and machine shop. All products and systems are finally assembled at Drumbeaters' facility in Elburn, Illinois, USA.
