Shore Capital Partners, a Chicago-based private equity firm focused on microcap investing within the food and beverage, healthcare and business services industries, has partnered with Container Services Inc., a custom blow molder of rigid plastic containers.

CSI is based in Hillsboro, Kan., with a second location in New Castle, Penn. The company was founded by Darrell Driggers in 1991 to offer custom plastic bottles to honey producers, including the “honey bear” bottle. The company focuses on polyethylene terephthalate and high-density polyethylene blow-molded plastic containers and has experience working with recycled plastic resins.

“Our partnership with Shore Capital will enable us to invest further in our team and continue improving our production capabilities. Most importantly, this partnership with Shore ultimately enables us to better serve our customers,” states Brent Driggers, son of Darrell Driggers and current CEO.
