About Us

Kaiser Group Inc. is one of the largest suppliers of beverage containers in the United States.

For over 20 years, we have manufactured and distributed millions of drink containers focusing primarily on the promotional and advertising specialty markets. Kaiser Group is a privately held company based in Minneapolis with warehouse facilities in Minneapolis and Toronto. Thermo-Steel is the Kaiser Group brand for drinkware.

Thermo-Steel manufactures a wide variety of stainless steel, acrylic, aluminum, glass and ceramic items. Our emphasis is on unique high quality products. We are constantly working on new and innovative designs like the incredibly popular VINO2GO® insulated wine tumbler. Our closely held factory (THEdrinkware Company) has large volume production capacity, many different designs and very competitive pricing. Having our own factory allows us to control all facets of the manufacturing process. Raw materials are carefully inspected to make sure our criteria are met. All parts are made in our factory allowing us to control the quality on a vertical basis. Assembly and inspection are done in house. Quality is a major focus at Thermo-Steel. Materials and components are FDA approved and both the CCIB and FDA must pass every shipment. We employ our own inspectors and quality control personnel in China. Each piece is inspected prior to shipment. We take all of the production from our factory, moving hundreds of containers annually. Some orders are in excess of one million pieces.

Because the decorating process requires very close tolerances, we use the most up to date manufacturing processes, including hydro forming stainless tubing. A comprehensive testing program for all of our products has been implemented in order to comply with many regulations that have come into effect. These tests are available to our customers.

Our customer service is second to none. We work 24/7 in order to give you the best service possible. We have an excellent reputation in the decorating community. New products are always under review. We are very familiar with the ASI market and its requirements and will work with our customers to develop fresh ideas. We have extensive knowledge of the decorating business and can imprint any product. Most items are stocked in our warehouses in large quantities and in the most popular colors. We can also do mixed or full direct containers.
