Independent Can Company celebrates 95th anniversary

Independent Can Company is celebrating its 95th anniversary – and is still proudly family-owned and operated.

The company was founded on South Howard and Ostend Streets in Baltimore City during the early years of the depression, making and selling cans that were used to hold lard, frozen eggs and fruit as well as packaged fresh food for the growing seafood industries. 

These simple products were the focus and sustaining force of the company for more than 40 years.

What began as a single location, through expansion and strategic acquisition, is now a nation-wide operation with five locations including manufacturing, metal lithography, offices and warehouse space. 

ICC is a world leader in metal printing and can making, serving a wide variety of industries including specialty foods, dry beverages and supplements, snacks, confectionery, industrial and military applications, health and beauty and much more.

Throughout the decades, the company has survived and even thrived during market and geopolitical challenges. Innovating for improvement and efficiency has helped the company to overcome unforeseen and impactful events such as the Great Recession and 25% steel tariffs.

Celebrating 95 years, the business is still family owned and operated, customer driven and employing close to 400 American workers. 

Over the past five years, the company has made historic investments in lithography, manufacturing equipment, training and facility maximisation. “Our customers change what we do, every day,” said President and CEO, Rick Huether.

The celebration of this milestone comes with gratitude for our dedicated and talented employees and the support and trust of our valued customers.
