Olive Can Company was founded in Chicago IL, in 1912, by Michele Armato, an Italian immigrant who fell in love with the craft of tin making, and dreams of starting a decorative tin factory. During the the ‘40s and ‘50s, Michele’s sons, Al and Philip helped their father run the very successful company. In 1966 Philip's son, Keith Armato, came to work for the company and by the 1970's he had deals with very large companies like Pillsbury, Carnation, Borden and Nestle, for promotional food tins. In 1975, Philip passed away, and Keith felt the company could never be the same without his father at the helm. We believe he closed Olive Can and went to work for another Armato owned business, Wisconsin Can, eventually opening his own business named, Union Street Packaging Co, now called Union Street Tin Co which is run by Keith's son, Dominic. We've seen some 1990's tins with the Olive Can name, which leads us to believe they may still use the highly recognizable Olive Can brand name at Union Tin Co.
