BASCO is the leading distributor of industrial packaging and container-related products.


BASCO product knowledge and expertise and application assistance is unparalleled.

We know more about our products and their applications than anyone else. This assures our customers that they will always get the right product for the job, without compromise. Unlike non-specialized distributors and catalog houses, our Customer Service Representatives are specially trained to match our customers’ needs with the best product available. This guarantees that we consistently deliver the high level of personal service that is our real product, and our customers know that our prices are competitive with any ordinary catalog distributor or supply house.

We supply industrial packaging equipment supplies and parts to customers world-wide.

We have a strong regional presence as a distributor of industrial packaging including: drums, pails, bottles, cans, cartons, filter bags/cartridges, and shipping room supplies. Our customers include major manufacturers of chemicals, coatings, lubricants, inks, and food products, as well as users of those products. We also supply component parts, such as closures and gaskets, to most of the manufacturers and reconditioners of drums and pails in the U.S. and Canada.

BASCO is intensely specialized.

Since 1946, container products have been our only business. This adds value and sets us apart from other companies that sell only a few of the same items. Our website presents over 5,000 products, including many unusual and hard-to-find items. Each product is selected for its utility and uniqueness.  

BASCO Is National.

Our main distribution center near Chicago, Illinois contains over 62,000 square feet of warehouse space.  For repeat blanket orders, our distribution centers in Arizona, Iowa, Michigan, North Carolina, Indiana and Texas get your order to you fast and complete, with minimum freight cost.
