Who We Are

About Pipeline

A Packaging Distributor Focused on People as well as Product

Pipeline Packaging, the leading industrial container distributor in the United States, was established in 1988 by Cleveland Steel Container Corporation. Our goal: To provide quality products on time and increase their success with a “CUSTOMERS FIRST” philosophy. This philosophy has driven Pipeline’s ongoing success with industrial and commercial packaging as well as its Core Services throughout the years and into the future.

Why Partner with a Distributor and Not the Manufacturer

Going direct to a manufacturer is a strategy that only a few, very large companies can accomplish and be satisfied. Why? Manufacturers deal only in high-volumes with no alterations or deviations from what they normally produce.

As a distributor, Pipeline Packaging leverages its buying power so that you still receive competitive pricing. Unlike manufacturers, we offer a great deal of flexibility through our Core Services which allow you to modify stock packaging/palletizing, enjoy just-in-time delivery, consider custom packaging design and other benefits. Manufacturers simply aren’t equipped to be as nimble.
