More Than Just a Great Company



Entrepreneurial determination and personal integrity created Great Western Containers over 30 years ago. That same honest commitment to great people, great products and great service continues to drive the company today.

Nils and Sylvia Bodtker, founders of Great Western Containers, believed that they could grow a successful company by developing and sourcing great products within an empowering work environment. And they did. By encouraging everyone to be their best – and delivering the best – every day, Great Western Containers has grown into the largest packaging supplier in Canada.

Mission Statement

Great Western Containers will strive to provide the highest quality and service with the most comprehensive array of industrial container-related products and services in Canada. We will continuously improve the value of the relationships shared with customers, suppliers, employees and the general community.

Building “Great”, Delivering Excellence.

Great People, Great Products, Great Service
