Headquarters in the Heartland
Many businesses value Chicago for its centralized location, talented labor pool and diverse economy. Shorr Packaging has a long history with Illinois, dating back to 1922, when Al Weingardner, Ken Dusell and Al Richmond formed the Northern Illinois Candy Company. Many mergers later, the Shorr Paper Company was born in the 1960s, and has been anchored in Aurora, IL ever since. This close relationship with the Chicago area will continue for many years to come as construction is now underway for a brand new corporate headquarters and warehouse in Aurora, IL.
For almost a century, Shorr has provided customers with unique, cost-effective solutions for their packaging needs. Our Chicago headquarters and distribution center focuses on customers who are local, and supports our many strategic hubs nationwide . We boast a full roster of packaging professionals, design consultants and sales reps, all dedicated to finding solutions for your business, no matter the industry.
