Ted Levine Drum Company

Ted Levine Drum Company
Ozzie Levine, President

The Levine family has been in the drum business since 1906, when Hyman Levine saw a need and started a wooden barrel cooperage in Los Angeles, California. In the mid-1940s, his nephew, Ted Levine, returned from the Armed Services and joined the family business. He worked at H. Levine Cooperage until 1962 when he decided to start his own business after the sale of his uncle’s business to Myers Drum. Today, Ted Levine Drum Company is a major plastic drum reconditioner on the West Coast under the leadership of Ted’s son, Ozzie Levine. Our corporate mission is to produce and provide exceptional quality and service as we continue to conserve natural resources and protect the environment.

“Citizens Business Bank has been very supportive in extending Lines of Credit for working capital and purchasing equipment that has allowed us to expand our business. With their continued support, we are automating our production lines to increase our productivity and profits, which wouldn’t be achievable without their consistent support. The staff at Citizens Business Bank are truly a pleasure to work with.”

“Our ground engaging tools and wear parts are our business. Without the Equipment Loans and Line of Credit we have with Citizens Business Bank, we couldn’t meet and exceed expectations of the businesses that rely upon our versatile products.
