Most family businesses have a clear line of succession, with each generation taking over seamlessly from the one before it. For Myers Container, however, keeping the company going for a century has required a major commitment and investment from the past two generations of its family owners.

“We’re a 100-year-old company in its fourth generation, but the company has left the family and come back a few times,” CEO Kyle Stavig says. Portland-based Myers Container manufactures, reconditions and recycles 55-gallon steel and plastic drums and intermediate bulk containers (IBCs) used in a variety of industrial applications.
