About Us

Since 1935, United Container Company has been dedicated to providing savings and efficiencies for both our suppliers and our customers.  We started by recycling feed and grain bags from local Southwest Michigan farmers, cleaning , repairing and reselling them to area mills at a savings.

Thirty years later we used the same idea and began buying and selling corrugated boxes.  Since then, United Container Company has specialized in innovative processes to recycle and reuse corrugated boxes and other types of packaging.

At United Container, recycling packaging for reuse has always been our business.  Long before it was fashionable or a necessity, we knew reusing packaging products made good sense and saved companies money.

To our customers… United Container provides corrugated shipping boxes at a fraction of the cost of a newly manufactured box.  We pride ourselves on saving our customers money without sacrificing the personal attention and prompt delivery service they expect from us.  For those who need corrugated shipping pads, our equipment can cut and form used and new obsolete boxes into pads.  We also offer a complete line of packaging supplies including polyethylene bags, sealing tape, tape machines, bubble pack, stretch wrap and more.

To our suppliers… we create value several ways.  United Container provides greater revenue than the recycling services of paper mills.  If they’re not recycling, we eliminate refuse and landfill fees.  We also save the labor and equipment costs required for baling their corrugated boxes.  But most importantly, we provide prompt responsive service.

Our commitment to offering great packaging value and superior service has allowed United Container Company to grow steadily over the years.  Today we service our accounts in the Midwest and throughout the United States and Canada from three facilities with over 250,000 square feet of manufacturing and warehouse space.  To insure our accounts get the best service possible, we employ a team of experienced professionals and ship many of our products on our own fleet of trucks and trailers.

United Container Company stands ready to improve your company’s bottom line while making your life easier.  Contact us today.
