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.

Food packagers and processors look to Silgan for innovations that serve a variety of purposes.
Silgan is a solutions-based manufacturer of metal food containers, in partnership with many of the country’s most recognizable packaged goods companies.


We’re virtually everywhere. 
Today, we are the leading supplier of metal food containers in the United States, with approximately half the U.S. market. We serve our clients throughout North America from our 29 strategically located manufacturing facilities around the country.
