Our Story

In 1994, Southern Container was established in Calhoun, Georgia with a vision to supply businesses with quick and reliable packaging solutions.

Today, Southern Container occupies four large warehouses in Dalton, Georgia totaling over 300,000 square feet, including our IBC reconditioning facility.  We have over 85 employees and a fleet of 15 trucks and over 300 trailers.

In April of 2022, Southern Container was acquired by Kelso & Company and became a part of Novvia Group, a leader in high-quality packaging solutions and customized services with domestic and international customers across a myriad of industries. Through its family of dynamic companies including Inmark, C.L. Smith, Silver Spur, Container Supply, Fox Valley Containers, Rhino Container, Novvia Group Canada, Southern Container, Rahway Steel Drum, and Northern Container, Novvia has set a new industry standard as a national stocking distributor with a comprehensive suite of containers and supplies, trusted local relationships, and 40+ years of best-in-class customer service.
