AboutSilgan Plastics Corporation
The leading provider of metal packaging solutions.
As the largest provider of metal food packaging in the United States, Silgan Containers is trusted by America’s most respected brands. Our reputation is based on a foundation of quality, excellence and unsurpassed technical expertise, enabling us to be a dedicated solutions-based partner to our customers.
The roots of our knowledge.
Silgan Containers officially became a company in 1987, acquiring its first self-make can operation from Carnation Company. Our expertise in can making can be traced back to 1899 when the Carnation Company began making its evaporated milk cans. This acquisition marked the first of many historical events that led to the company we are today.
