GREEN BAY, Wis. — The Packer Fastener family of companies, including Green Bay-based Packer Fastener and Packer Freight and Chicago area-based Albolt Manufacturing, announced promotions of four key executives.

By restructuring our leadership model and promoting talent from within, we’ve set the foundation for future growth and expansion.”

His family of companies now employs 155 individuals in 11 different cities throughout the Midwest.
