Mission & Purpose

In 1980, Liz and Dick Uihlein recognized a local need for a shipping supply distributor and started Uline from their basement. Their first product was the H-101 carton sizer (still offered today). From those humble beginnings, the business has grown far beyond their expectations, while still remaining a family-owned and run company. Uline is now North America's leading distributor of shipping, packaging and industrial supplies with over 1,700 box sizes in stock. Product lines have expanded to include retail, safety, material handling and janitorial items. Uline's 848-page catalog reaches businesses nationwide, offering 40,000 products always in stock for quick delivery. With over 9,000 employees in North America, Uline has distribution centers near Chicago, IL; Minneapolis, MN; Allentown, PA; Los Angeles, CA; Atlanta, GA; Dallas, TX; Reno, NV and Seattle, WA, as well as international locations near Toronto and Edmonton, Canada and in Mexicali and Monterrey, Mexico. Uline is a drug-free workplace.
