Mike Hrbacek, owner of The Packaging Wholesalers got his start in the packaging business over 27 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 Packaging.com. JIT Packaging focused heavily in technology and invested in a website, catalogs and advertised on radio and billboards.
