DS Containers breaks ground on distribution center in West Chicago

The future 300,278-square-foot distribution center will be expandable to another 250,000 square feet.

Sam Yamaguchi, CEO of DS Containers, a subsidiary of Daiwa Can Company, announces the company's latest plans for expansion. On the 10th anniversary of building their state-of-the-art, 236,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Batavia, IL, DS Containers is now expanding. As the leading manufacturer of two-piece aerosol cans, their thriving business is in need of additional space.

Just one mile northeast of their headquarters, in West Chicago, they have broken ground for a 300,278-square-foot, build-to-suit distribution center. Situated on 14 acres, the space is expandable by approximately 250,000 square feet for future aerosol manufacturing lines.

Yamaguchi attributes DS Containers' success and exponential growth over the last ten years to the hardworking and dedicated team of DSC and the Management Team, which includes: William Smith, Jr., President and COO, John P. Duffy, Executive Vice President and CFO, and Matt Kuehn, Vice President of Sales, Marketing, and Technology.
