Pipeline Packaging, the largest US distributor of rigid industrial containers, has acquired HAZMATPAC Inc., a manufacturer and distributor of packaging containers for the safe transport of hazardous materials.

"This acquisition represents a significant product line extension for our company and an exciting opportunity to expand into this niche business," says Chris Nelson, President of Pipeline Packaging.

HAZMATPAC will operate as a wholly owned independent subsidiary of Pipeline Packaging. HAZMATPAC has two locations, a 48,000 square foot warehouse in Houston, TX and a 31,000 square foot warehouse in Philadelphia, PA.  Nelson continues, "HAZMATPAC will work closely with the Pipeline Packaging team to share best practices as a way to grow both businesses."  

Pipeline Packaging and U.S. COEXCELL, are subsidiaries of the Cleveland Steel Container Corporation.
