W.D. Adams Co. in Costa Mesa has been making industrial containers since 1960. Manufacturers use the containers to store parts and safeguard them during shipment. The company's 15 employees make about 350 different kinds of boxes and containers. In recent years, the company has shifted its customer base from military and electronics companies to automobile manufacturers, which use the containers to store automobile parts and ship them from one plant to another, President Jim Burra said.
