C.G Packaging Systems Ltd is a distributor of 55 gallon drums tailored for manufacturing the steelpan instrument. The company has been formed to meet the urgent, relevant need of barrels for the local steelpan industry. No stranger to the steelpan industry, we have been importing barrels since 2007 which GILLPANS TM has been using to manufacture their instruments.
Specifications of the steel have been upgraded for greater durability , marketability and shelf life. The steelpan is taking a step beyond a cultured instrument and increasing its physical integrity and its international influence. The purpose of this company is to stabilise the steelpan economy and to lift the standard of professionalism in the local industry.
All the above corresponds with the steelpan terminology and standard ADSR (envelope of notes)- Attack, Decay, Sustain and Release. With our present level of competence, we are expanding operations from being just a skill pool and steelpan provider.
We are now poised to become more involved in the local steelpan process. This promises to boost Trinidad’s steelpan landscape and also increase the influence of the steelpan globally. It’s a definitive step towards self governance and the nation becoming the premier steelpan provider
