About Us

Our Story

More than 100 years ago, a hardworking man came up with the idea to sell used glass bottles in St. Louis. His brilliant idea resulted in the start of our parent company, TricorBraun in 1902. Today, his grandchildren carry on his dream by leading one of the largest distributors of glass and plastic packaging in North America. Our humble beginnings taught us dedication, commitment, and hard work.

We know exactly what it takes to grow a strong and successful business from a simple vision. Born out of the need for an online marketplace for emerging businesses, Packaging Options Direct was created in 2011. With the support of TricorBraun, we have become the leading online wholesale marketplace designed to supply you with all the bottles, jars, cans, containers, tins, scoops, pumps and closures that are needed to create ideas and grow dreams. We take the success of your business seriously.
