Company Overview

Silgan Containers is the largest provider of metal food packaging in the United States. Trusted by America’s most respected brands, our reputation is based on a foundation of quality, excellence and unsurpassed technical expertise.  We pride ourselves on being a solution-based partner to our customers and work hard to earn their business every day.


Silgan Containers officially became a company in 1987, acquiring its first self-make can operation from Carnation Company.  But the roots of our knowledge of can making dates back to 1899 when the Carnation Company began making their own evaporated milk cans.  This acquisition marked the first of historical events that led to the Silgan Containers we are today.
