Export Ambition

The distribution of the chemical containers of 800 and 1000 liters, mainly takes place in Europe. What is a Varibox®? A double-walled recyclable polyethylene container. The containers can be provided with a suction pipe with quick coupling and a level meter. Working with chemicals becomes easy and secure with the Varibox®. Optionally, a RFID tag (Radio Frequency Identification) can be added so that the container can be followed during transport.

Exporting Countries

Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Norway, Poland, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland, Australia.


Promens has its own product development department that’s responsible for the design and production of the containers. The chemical containers comply with all rules and requirements of the United Nations, set by the Dutch and European regulations and the ADR Directive (Accord européen relatif au transport international de marchandises Dangereuses par Route). Before a new product is launched on the market, it is subject to an extensive testing program. This allows users to safely and responsibly store and transport chemical products.
