Pipeline Packaging:
Employee Owned and Proud

It takes good people at the core to make Pipeline Packaging one of the leading packaging distributors in the United States since 1988.

Employee Stock Ownership Program (ESOP)

Pipeline ESOP Staff

This philosophy plays a key role in the success of Pipeline Packaging and its parent company, Cleveland Steel Container. That’s why after 50 years of building a successful organization, owner Chris Page decided to give up complete ownership to his employees. In 2014, Pipeline Packaging became part of the CSCC Employee Stock Ownership Plan. While some may consider an owner selling his company to be a major transition, the move was a natural evolution for the organization.


"The ESOP will allow the company to remain Cleveland Steel Container, keep the employees actively engaged, and support the customers with solid stable growth."

- Chris Page, Founder

What is your role at Pipeline? Making steel pails look sexy, hiding my crayons from the others and looking dumb when someone has Excel questions when I’m really a master at it.
