Don Leaman established Leaman Container in 1974 to build a future for himself and his family. It began with three employees, a 9,000 square foot building in Fort Worth, Texas and three manufacturing machines.

Steve Leaman, Don’s son, started working at Leaman Container in 1981, painting offices after school. He worked his way up, first as a Production employee then through Customer Service. He went into Sales in 1995 and became Sales Manager in 2001. He has been the General Manager since 2003. In 2006 Steve became majority owner.

Leaman Container has over 40 full-time employees, four buildings at 89,000 square feet, 13 machines, a warehouse full of packaging products and a retail location in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.

What has led to Leaman Container’s success? We never sell an empty box. To put it another way, we work with our customers to give them the best value for their dollar. We share our good fortune with our employees and our community.

All in all, we think we’re pretty swell folks, if we do say so ourselves. We think you’ll say the same if you’ll give us the chance.
