N2it Containers, formerly a part of the C.L. Smith group of companies, now joins Pipeline Packaging.

Pipeline Packaging announced the purchase of N2it Containers today. Formerly a part of the C.L. Smith group of companies with offices in Houston, Dallas and Oyster Creek, TX, N2it specializes in larger scale, industrial packaging such as steel and plastic drums as well as IBC totes. The acquisition continues Pipeline’s tradition of buying locations with experienced talent to simultaneously increase their customer satisfaction and product offering.

Drums and IBC Totes, such as these pictured, make up the core of N2it’s business.

“We’re thrilled to add N2it to the Pipeline family,” says Pipeline President, Mary Dahl. “The 19 people who are joining us bring a wealth of knowledge, experience and a strong work ethic dedicated to Customers First. We want to reassure our new customers that their current business won’t change – except for the better.”

Pipeline Packaging will operate the organization under the N2it Containers name for the time being as they transition order processing and inventory management systems. A new warehouse facility is already under construction to help consolidate existing Texas assets with the new products.

Pipeline Packaging  (, a subsidiary of Cleveland Steel Container Corporation, is the largest US distributor of industrial rigid packaging and an upcoming resource in the consumer packaging market. Founded in 1988, Pipeline has grown to 11 offices and over $100MM in sales. Its success is attributed to a dedicated, people-centric vision that unites the best industry talent and respected manufacturers with a commitment to always consider “CUSTOMERS FIRST.”
