Our Owners

Stowers Containment Solutions was recently acquired by Caniwi Capital in December 2010.

Custom Solutions

There are times when a new containment solution is needed. Since 1972 we have been developing the products our customers need. Design and build, joint ventures and co-operative development with other companies are major strengths.
