View PDF Message from our Chief Operations Officer

Dear Champion Container Customer, 

Champion Container would like you to know the protocol that we are enforcing in regards to the COVID-19 pandemic in order to keep our warehouses operational and to prevent any disruptions of supply. Champion is very much aware of the concerns of our customers due to the rapid spread of the virus throughout the U.S. and the world. 

First and foremost, to keep our employees safe and in good health, we are following the recommendations from the CDC, state and local governments. 

Currently we are 100% operational. We would like to take this opportunity to let you know that we have 6 warehouses in 4 different states in the Northeast. This gives us the ability to ship from multiple locations if certain areas are affected harder than others. This helps alleviate any concerns of state shutdowns or outbreaks. 

Finally, all of our major suppliers have been contacted and they do not anticipate any interruption in production. 

Champion Container is here to assist in any way that we can. Please, if you have any questions contact your local sales representative. 

Sincerely, 

Richard Lott

Chief Operating Officer
