It marks the distributor's eighth total location, and the second branch opened this year.


CHICAGO — With continued growth in 2021, Packer Fastener has decided to expand its brand further south. This will mark the second brick-and-mortar opening of 2021. Packer Fastener is proud and excited to announce a new branch opening in Chicago area, which will be the companies eighth location. The new branch is set to open on Nov. 1.

Packer Fastener was started in 1998 by three fastener salesmen. A dream and a little elbow grease was all it took to make us a fierce competitor within the fastener and industrial supply markets. Today, Packer Fastener has over 120 team members who provide top-of the-line service and contribute tirelessly to the success of the company. Packer is a culture and people-centric organization; reinvesting, improving, and striving for perfection, is what we preach daily. Our people-first focus has led to a 98 percent retention rate among team members and a 95 percent referral rate for new hires.

To get to this point in time, Packer Fastener has continuously provided excellent service with accuracy, efficiency, and speed. At Packer Fastener, both the leaders and the team are heavily invested in the culture that has been created and is helping to make the dream come true. Loyal customers and referrals have been another important factor in Packer Fastener’s success throughout the past decade. Without loyal customers, none of this would have been possible. We owe it to them for always coming to us with problems, and in turn, Packer will always be there to help find the best solution.
