Manufacturer based in Chautauqua County provides an overlooked, but essential product
With five locations in Western New York and Ohio, Jamestown-based Jamestown Container Companies is ramping-up capabilities across its facilities to serve essential customers and the unique challenges presented by the COVID-19 crisis. Locally, Jamestown Container is providing indispensable packing materials for businesses like Jamestown Plastics and Five & 20 Spirits to get critical new products like face shields and hand sanitizer into the hands of users. Within 24 hours of receiving a request, Jamestown Container’s Falconer facility designed, produced and delivered boxes that will be used to ship Jamestown Plastics’ new True Hero™ face shields.
As a custom corrugated packaging manufacturer and distributor of packaging supplies, including personal protective equipment (PPE), Jamestown Container has provided essential nitrile disposable exam gloves (more than 30,000 pairs) and 2,750 lab coats to medical centers like the University of Rochester and St. Joseph’s hospital in Cheektowaga, a facility now dedicated to the treatment of COVID-19 related patients. The company has also donated boxes to food banks and providers throughout Western New York and Ohio.
If value is measured by the company you keep, Jamestown Container is doing very well. Current customers include Rochester Midland, one of the few companies authorized by the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) to produce airplane sanitizer, Port Erie Plastics in Harborcreek, PA, which is temporarily making flooring for portable hospitals, and Constellation Brands in Victor, NY, which is not only converting some of its operations to making hand sanitizer but has pledged $2.5M to organizations like
the Bartenders Guild to help fight the long-term economic ramifications of businesses closing.
