Welcome Kaplan Container to the BASCO Family!

Who is Kaplan Container?

Kaplan Container began selling wooden barrels in Rochester, New York in the

1920's. Today, they are a major industrial supplier of plastic, metal, fiber, and

glass containers throughout the United States.




Whether you need a one-ounce plastic bottle, a five-gallon plastic pail, or a 1,000-gallon steel tank, Kaplan has it.

We maintain close ties with top manufacturers who can turn around our orders virtually overnight and stock more than 500 SKUs in our 67,000 square foot warehouse. That’s one of the reasons that our customers choose to do business with us – we ship them exactly what they need in a matter of days. 

Another reason our customers rely on us is our product expertise – we provide guidance at no charge to help customers select the best product for their particular application. For us, it’s not about selling you a container, it’s about selling you the right container.

We do business with 20 of the nation’s largest corporations. Companies like GE, DuPont, Sherwin-Williams and 3M routinely turn to us for help because of our expertise in environmental, chemical, and manufacturing containment issues.

Our delivery is quick, our pricing affordable, and our service
top notch!

We've got the container you need!

If you have a need for a container – whether it’s a 1-ounce plastic bottle or a 1,000-gallon tank – Kaplan Container can help. We started out as a supplier of wooden barrels, back in 1925, and today we’re the largest container distributor in the state.

We sell both new and reconditioned containers, which include bottles, boxes, cans, drums, IBCs, pails, jars, and jugs. Depending on the application, these containers can be made of steel, plastic, fiber, stainless steel, polyethylene, or glass. We also stock accessories, closures, handling equipment, and industrial spill containment supplies.

We'll help you get the container you need!

Besides finding just the right container for your particular need, Kaplan Container also offers a free locator service. If we don’t have the drum, bottle, can, pail, or box you need in our warehouse, we’ll find the quantity you’re looking for from our list of certified vendors and have it shipped directly to you.

We’re interested in establishing long-term business relationships and our business approach reflects that. We share information, advice, and experience freely with you in the hopes that you’ll come back to us whenever you have a container need.
