Independence that drives results

PCI is veteran-owned, family-run business that brings together some of the world’s foremost specialists in container technology and materials handling. Our independence means that we can commit time and resources to developing advanced solutions that keep us—and you—leading, not following. We actively pursue research, development, testing and learning to seek out new materials, processes, and products to serve you better.

“PCI is a major supplier for us. Their logistics and supply chain management teams are some of the best in the business. The dedicated sourcing relationships that they have and their creative solutions to our just-in-time inventory needs make them one of our core suppliers.”

A commitment to growth and innovation

PCI operates one of the nation’s most technologically advanced container production facilities at our nearly 250,000 square-foot headquarters in El Dorado, Arkansas. In 2021, we also completed the acquisition of Rehrig Pacific’s pail product line. The addition of the Rehrig products and technology to the PCI family gives us a powerful advantage in offering greater and more differentiated solutions to our customers.

These are just a couple of examples of PCI’s commitment to pursuing thoughtful, carefully planned expansion and advancement. Our goal is to continuously improve and enhance the speed and agility of our production and distribution lines, delivering the kind of efficiency that helps us produce more and varied containers for you at lower cost.
