There's More to Down River
Down River began more than 40 years ago with the first corrugated honeycomb dunnage void filler, the Dor-Kor void filler and components for flush doors. Since then, we have developed many load securement products and services, continually increasing our selection and capabilities. In 2013, we became part of Signode Industrial Group. This acquisition included our strategic regional locations, our products, services, product development pipeline, and intellectual property.
Backed by the resources of Signode Industrial Group, Down River operates as one of its several business units in the area of protective packaging. As such we are able to provide more value to our customers by offering one of the industry’s broadest selections of load securement products, enabling us to provide complete load securement systems, thereby often reducing freight costs, inventory costs, and administrative costs for our customers. Combined with several value-added services, such as on-site load securement evaluations, best practices recommendations, load securement training, and test shipment origin and arrival condition report, Down River delivers the cost savings and value that commercial and industrial shippers are seeking.
