Containers for wire, in particular welding wire, bear the brand name of the entity finally selling the wire, even though the wire was produced and/or packaged by another company. In order to increase flexibility for the company packaging the welding wire, the wire is packaged into a neutral container. At the time of shipment, an interchangeable skin with the brand of the customer that requires the product is placed at the neutral container, making the container a brand product. In Figures 1 and 2, a container having a metal cage is shown, which is provided with a skin made from cardboard. The skin is placed around the metal cage. In Figure 3, a container is shown which comprises a neutral, closed wall over which a second skin is placed for branding the container. The second skin adds to the stability of the container.
