Shirley,

Penn State has, for the past 10 years purchased both our film canisters and
our video boxes from Plastic Reel Corporation, 8140 Webb Ave, North
Hollywood CA, 91605 818-504-0400.

We've been happy with these and have had no problems with the distributor.
In fact, when we decided to make the change to plastic, we had samples from
a number of companies and put them through some rigorous tests (including
freezing them and then bouncing them off concrete). Needless to say, these
won out.

I don't know how these stack up price wise with others since we buy in
bulk, but if you're looking for something to go the distance, we'd
recommend these.
