The acquisition will consolidate supply lines and leverage the two companies to allow for geographic expansion in the Midwest, Pipeline Packaging said.

“This is an exciting new opportunity to expand our market and services in major cities in the Midwest,” said Chris Nelson, president of Pipeline Packaging. “We envision a strong presence in cities such as St. Louis, Kansas City, Des Moines, Chicago and Memphis.”

Pipeline Packaging and COEXCELL are subsidiaries of the Cleveland Steel Container Corporation. Pipeline Packaging is the largest U.S. distributor of industrial rigid packaging.
