The Cary Co. has bought Three Rivers Packaging Inc., a Pittsburgh-area industrial container and packaging distributor specializing in steel, plastic and fiber drums and intermediate bulk containers (IBCs).

The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“The acquisition of Three Rivers Packaging has strengthened our position with our drum and IBC offering,” Cary Vice President T.J. Tyrrell said in a statement. "In addition, it helps our geographic expansion by teaming up with an experienced staff that is very good at what they do, with a heavy focus on customer experience."

Three Rivers Packaging, formed in 1993 by Brian Daniels, initially focused on the sale of new and reconditioned steel drums. The McKees Rocks company has evolved to become the area’s leading IBC re-bottler/reconditioner.
