ALC comprises two core divisions, namely, JB Anderson that specialize in solutions designed to protect and secure cargo that is typically transported via land, air, or sea and the ALC Liquid Liquid Packaging Division, that provides a range of customized, flexible packaging solutions specifically tailored for the collapsible Intermediate Bulk Container (IBC) or “tote” in which they get used.

ALC’s JB Anderson division produces and supplies a range of product solutions designed to secure and protect cargo that is typically transported in shipping line containers, trucks or boxes.

This includes a broad range of desiccant products, as well as a range of customized container liner, bulkhead, and corrugated & kraft paper solutions, dunnage bag solutions as well as products specifically tailored for use in the agricultural sector, including a specialized range of silo bag solutions.

The JB Anderson desiccant solutions are produced for a worldwide market with each product variant in the range being specifically designed to be used across a wide range of sectors that include: Agricultural (Peanuts/Grains/Soya/Rice/ Cocoa/Nuts/Coffee Beans/Pulses), Beverage, Food/Processed Foods, Packaging/Paper/Wood, Chemicals/Plastics/Glass- powders, Electronics/Appliances, Furniture, Garments/Footwear, Metals/Raw Materials, Machinery, Pharmaceutical, Retail, Automotive/Aerospace.

The JB Anderson range is ISO accredited with each desiccant product uniquely formulated to ensure optimum moisture absorption based on the specific nature of the application.

JB Anderson’s customized container liner solutions are designed to ensure maximum loading capacity of the container and to ensure that products remain secure during transit.

This Division specializes in producing and distributing a range of high quality liners specifically for Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBC). IBC’s are fast becoming the preferred and cost-efficient alternative for those looking to transport liquid products, with rigid steel drums and containers increasingly being viewed as ineffective and inefficient. ALC’s range of liquid packaging IBC liner product solutions cater to a wide range of industries that are looking for innovative and cost-effective ways to transport their products safely and securely, including food and food ingredients, cosmetics, industrial goods and chemical sectors. ALC also produces specialized packaging for high viscosity and aseptic liquids, powdered and granule products, as well as liners specifically engineered for bulk vacuum, modified atmosphere applications.

This has resulted in the distribution of products all across the globe, including Australasia, Asia, Europe, Africa and North and South America. The cornerstone of ALC’s success has been our ability to innovate and this, combined with extensive product and application knowledge, has allowed us to maintain and grow our global customer base.

From its humble beginnings in 1989, when the company was founded by visionary Jumbo Anderson, ALC has grown into an
established global player operating in over
45 countries worldwide.

The culture of ALC is defined by its 4 pillars of innovation, technology, teamwork and quality, pillars that were inspired from Jumbo’s approach to “get it right from the beginning”.

“Nothing is impossible. We are driven to match 
carefully chosen opportunities with the perfect solution,
just like every jar has a matching lid.”

– Jumbo Anderson –

When faced with a challenge, Jumbo always held true to the belief that nothing was impossible and using the analogy of every jar having a unique and matching lid, was driven by the challenge of approaching carefully chosen opportunities as an opportunity to excel by providing a perfect solution.

Jumbo’s enthusiastic spirit continues to influence the organisation to this day and it is only fitting that his legacy be carried on through the name of the company he founded – the Anderson Lid Company or ALC.
