The Packaging Wholesalers – Our Company Roots


 Mike Hrbacek, owner of The Packaging Wholesalers got his start in the packaging business over 30 years ago working for a packaging distributor in Chicago. A year later, Mike started his own packaging company which provided packaging supplies and custom cartons to local businesses in the Chicago land area.

 In late 2001, Mike reentered the packaging supply chain (stock boxes, tapes, stretch film, etc.) creating a new company called JIT JIT Packaging focused heavily in technology and invested in a website, catalogs and advertised on radio and billboards. In 2004, through JIT’s advertising campaign, many Chicago-area packaging distributors called to inquire about purchasing packaging supplies from JIT. The initial vision was not to sell to distributors; however after providing services to a few select distributors, Mike realized the strong demand for a packaging wholesaler and made a conscious decision to sell his end-user book of business. In March of 2005, the end-user book of business was officially sold to pursue the model of selling exclusively to packaging distributors. With a handful of distributor customers, Mike offered wholesale prices and the very best customer service. JIT grew strictly on word of mouth and is now partnering with thousands of distributors nationwide.

 In February of 2012, JIT Packaging changed its name and identity to The Packaging Wholesalers. The Packaging Wholesalers has received a registered trademark and better represents who we are and what we do. We also have developed our revolutionary Patent Pending Delivered Pricing Program that allows all orders that meet minimum threshold values to a designated zip code to be shipped freight-free anywhere in the continental USA. 
 In March of 2015, The Packaging Wholesalers opened a new
facility in Dallas, Texas.  The facility is 300,000 square feet,
has 30 dock doors, and employs 40 hard-working Texans. In August 2015 we also moved our headquarters to a newly renovated 500,000 square foot  facility located in Elgin, IL.
On December 1, 2016 The Packaging Wholesalers proudly announced it's  3rd location in Hazleton,PA to service the East Coast! The addition of our  newest 300,000 square foot distribtion center  is located within a few miles of both Interstate 80 & Interstate 81.
November 5, 2018  - The Packaging Wholesalers opened our 4th Distribution Center, a 400,000 sqft facility with 40 dock doors located at 2160 Anvil Block Rd. Forest Park, GA , 20 miles southeast of the Atlanta airport. We are planning a 4th quarter 2018 launch that will assist us to further optimize shipments to you and your customers from all 4 Packaging Wholesalers locations. 
January 2019 - The Packaging Wholesalers implemented its SFA - Ship from Anywhere program. Simply put, The Packaging Wholesalers has virtually eliminated back orders. When our Distributors place an order, our technology selects the nearest TPW distribution center to process your order. Occasionally, the distribution center selected may be short on stock, in turn our technology will recognize the shortfall and redirects the outstanding balance to the next nearest TPW distribution center seamlessly so you and your customer receive the shipment on time and damage free!
