Portland, OR – Led by the fourth-generation leadership, Myers Container celebrates its 100th anniversary. George Myers started the company by washing wooden barrels in 1917. His son, Gib Myers grew the company and then sold to Kaiser Steel in 1968. In 1984, Roger Stavig, married to Prudence Myers (Stavig), bought the company back from Kaiser Steel along with a group of unrelated partners. In 2007, the Stavig brothers and their sister Katrina Roth, acquired Myers Container and Container Management Services. In 2011, the Stavigs added General Steel Drum in North Carolina.
“This milestone marks both our legacy and our future. To be in business for 100 years is extremely gratifying and humbling,” states Kyle Stavig, CEO. “We want to thank all our customers, team members, partners and business communities who have been part of our first 100 years. We are looking forward to continuing our tradition of providing quality, value, service, safety and sustainability to all our stakeholders in the future.”
