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. Product lines have expanded to include retail, safety, material handling and janitorial items. Uline now offers 38,500 products always in stock for quick delivery.
With over 8,000 employees in North America, Uline has distribution centers in 12 locations across the United States, Canada and Mexico.
