In 1948, The Packline Co. was founded by Stephen Ryder III with his partner, Rice Fitzpatrick. We started out with a small facility in Detroit, offering our customers industrial packaging supplies, our purpose has always been to provide our customers with the best possible solutions for their packaging needs and do so with their best interest at heart.
We’ve always strived to remain open-minded and innovative, to keep ourselves ahead of the trends. Our packaging know-how is what really helps our customers succeed.
We provide protective packaging solutions and custom-branded designs to make your packaging stand out.
We provide the most durable and innovative packaging equipment available in the industry. Whether you are a start-up or a Fortune 500 company we have equipment solutions for you.

We became one of the first distributors for International Staple and Machine, inventor of the retractable anvil stapler. Soon after, added stenciling, stitching wire, strapping, and tape.
