Recognizing a local need for a shipping supply distributor, Liz and Dick Uihlein started Uline from their basement in 1980. Beginning with the H-101 carton sizer (still offered today), the Uihleins grew the business far beyond their own expectations.
Uline is now North America's leading distributor of shipping, packaging and industrial supplies. To meet customer needs, product lines have expanded to include retail, safety, material handling, industrial and packaging materials.
Uline's 600+ page catalog reaches businesses nationwide, offering thousands of products with quick delivery.
