However, it also creates containers for food, hardware, cosmetics and medications. As it grew, Sterling Packaging expanded from serving mostly small Canadian businesses to landing contracts with large Fortune 500 companies in Canada and in the United States. It eventually opened a second location in Alabama to help serve its American customers.
