Chamber Business of the Week: Ring Container
When Bob Ring started his career as a machinist, he had the vision to satisfy customers with varying makes and sizes of bottles at competitive pricing.
He made the machinery, designed more efficient bottle designs and set out to locate various plants at strategic places throughout the U.S., Canada, and the United Kingdom to accommodate his customers.
Founded by Bob Ring in 1968, Ring Container Technologies is a privately held, multinational corporation headquartered in Oakland, Tenn.
Focused on finding sustainable solutions for the consumer packaging industry, the company has grown to be one of the largest plastic container manufacturers in North America, with 16 operations in the U.S., Canada and England.
Instead of trying to be all things to all customers, Ring focuses its resources on specific end-use applications, including retail food, chemicals and pet care.
"We begin with design thinking and engaging our customers, then develop the end product through advanced technology, and geographically locating near our major customers," Ring said. "As a result, some of the world's most recognized companies entrust their brands to us and to our beautiful and functional jars, jugs, bottles and wide-mouthed canisters."
Ring Container Technologies is a leading manufacturer of plastic containers for food and other packaged products. The goal is to continuously improve products and services to meet customers' needs, allowing the business to prosper.
"We achieve these goals by enabling our employees to be leaders and innovators, focusing on our customers' needs by providing quality products and services that exceed our customers' expectations, and using and being a leader in technology, allowing us to offer innovative products at lower costs," Ring said.

From the Director...
Are You A Planner?
I am sure I don’t need to tell you that June/July is one of the busiest times of the year in our fair city. We had our first Chamber luncheon last week at the Stadium, and I think I overwhelmed the attendees with information on all that is going on. Others chimed in with more events and our note papers were full of events, times etc.
One of the Chamber’s targets is to: TARGET BETTER BUSINESS PRACTICES and we can do that by being better planners.
We at the Chamber are doing all we can to keep you informed, and we will do our best to get the info to you early so that you can plan. Planning is a key for your businesses success. I had a work associate that didn’t like to plan but by the time we finished working together after nearly three years he was finally talking about “planning”.
I am a planner and like to have my “ducks in a row” as best as I can. That is how we will run your Chamber as well. Help us help you by planning to:
- Read our newsletter, website and Facebook and responding accordingly.
- Respond to our email inquiries for information from you.
- Call us if you need information or have questions. That is why we are here.
- Ask others to join the Chamber. We are 192 strong presently but need more to join if we are to be financially stable.
- Get us your business information so that we can answer inquiries from those visiting or moving to the area. Please update the Chamber with any email; phone, address or any other changes.
I have been amazed by the number of new people moving to Belle Fourche and the Belle Fourche area. If you have never moved to a new area, let me tell you, it can be challenging. My wife and I moved here eight years ago but knew only our daughter, and we were building a house. I really needed “local wisdom” about what contractors, lumber yards etc. to use. I did my best from afar to get my “ducks in a row” but failed in some areas because I didn’t have the right connections. Plan to make connections by attending the Chamber Coffee on Tuesday mornings, the Chamber Luncheon on Wednesdays at noon, or attend a Chamber mixer or business open houses.
Your Chamber is here to provide that connection between you, your customers, and other businesses. Many people come to the Chamber of Commerce for information on businesses and our area. When they come in we give them the information that we have or know. It behooves us to get to know each other. I’ll be coming around but feel free to stop by the Chamber and introduce yourself or call and ask me to stop by to get to know you. I would very much welcome those kinds of calls.
