Sold – Manufacturing of Custom Crating Containers For Shipping


Company was founded in 1984 to serve the industrial markets of Greater Chicagoland, Rockford, and Milwaukee. They provide custom wood shipping containers for export and domestic destinations that meet the government requirements  for verifiable heat treated lumber crates to avoid transfer of insects and bacteria from one country to another.

A steady customer base provides business consistency, and capacity exists for increasing orders.  Established as a lumber yard, they can take advantage of lumber yard pricing in their material purchases, keeping costs down.  One owner is retiring and the other, a key man, is willing to stay on as consultant or manager.  As American manufacturing and exports continue to rebound, this company is positioned to be at the forefront of an expanding shipping market.
