Containers America and Russell-Stanley have announced that the two companies are joining forces. The addition of Russell-Stanley to this group expands the Containers America, LLC steel drum consortium’s manufacturing and logistics capabilities, as well as its geographic coverage throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Containers America is a joint venture of independent steel drum manufacturers comprised of CP Louisiana Inc. of New Orleans, LA; General Steel Drum Corp. of Charlotte, NC; Nesco Container Corp. of St. Louis, MO; North Coast Container Corp. of Cleveland, OH; and Trilla Steel Drum Corporation of Chicago, IL.
