WELCOME TO

PACKER FASTENER.

WELCOME TO

Swaggerville

On May 4, 1998, three fastener salesmen walked into a bar…and the rest is history. Packer Fastener was born of grit, determination, and drive. After a long day of selling, over some tall cold brewskis, three experienced fastener salesmen shared the startup dream.

PULL UP A STOOL.

We're pumped you're here. You'll find that working with Packer Fastener is equal parts muscle and hustle, fun and getting s*^t done.

WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO, AKA, WHY WE GIVE A DAMN.

Because we're all in this together. We believe in developing one another—and ourselves—to create growth and opportunity. So that together, we can continue to build something great.

WHO WE ARE.

Our Packer Fastener Swagger is who we are and who we aspire to be. There are 14 "swaggeristic" values that define us—values that customers expect from us and that as employees, we expect from one another.

WHAT WE (REALLY) DO HERE.

On the surface, it's pretty simple: we sell nuts and bolts. But underneath, we're driven by some lofty goals and a higher purpose: we build partnerships through our people (this is where you come in) and a commitment to overserve with speed, accuracy and availability.

HOW DO WE MAKE IT ALL HAPPEN?

The first way is through HEXCELLENCE (wink, see what we did there?). Packer Fastener invests in employees and their excellence with a 360-degree effort to bring out, develop, and apply their talents.

The second way is through our annual strategic planning process–a process that involves the entire company. All ideas matter, all feedback is worthwhile, and engagement is crucial. In other words, we're all in.

THE PACKER FASTENER

Swagger

The Packer Fastener Swagger is who we are and who we aspire to be. The following fundamentals are part manifesto, part handbook. They are a set of shared beliefs, values, and practices that define us, and defines our Swagger

ACT WITH INTEGRITY

Act in the best interest of our customers, our organization, and our coworkers. Do the right thing at all times, in all circumstances, whether or not anyone is watching.

PRACTICE GENEROSITY

Take the time and opportunity to make a difference. Use your talents and successes to enrich others' futures. Instead of asking "what can I get?" ask "what can I give?"

KEEP IT FUN

Issues happen. Keep perspective. The world has bigger problems than a box of mixed nuts.

CHALLENGE & CHANGE

We are a company of continual improvement. Challenge the norm, "the way it's always been done." Be a life-long learner.

THINK LIKE A CUSTOMER & ACT LIKE AN OWNER

Identify how you can improve your customers' efficiencies and offer solutions. Be a walking, talking Packer brand ambassador.

BECOME THE EXPERT

Our competence confirms we are fastener experts. Approach every task with energy, purpose, critical thinking, detail, follow-up, and enthusiasm. Take the responsibility, do the research, and be the expert.

WORK HARD

We outhustle our competition. We outwork our competition. Be ambitious, be fast, work smart, prioritize, and GSD.

WE ARE A BUSINESS FAMILY

We are not processes or numbers to be managed. We are a family, where everybody matters and bleeds Packer green.

LIVE HEALTHY, LIVE SAFE

We encourage and make it possible for everyone to be at their best, both physically and mentally. Make "Safety" a habit.

CREATE LEADERS

We build each other by creating an environment that develops our gifts. Listen with empathy, build relationships, and focus on shaping values and beliefs.

EMBRACE OPPORTUNITY

Every obstacle offers opportunity. Focus on the possibilities, don't be complacent, and keep your foot on the gas.

MAKE QUALITY PERSONAL

Quality is not an act, it is a habit. Take pride in everything you touch and everything you do. Ask yourself, "Is this my best work?"

TAKE WHAT'S YOURS

We are trusted to make the right decisions and are empowered to do what is necessary without "red tape." Become what you want to be.

DELIVER RESULTS

Identify what you're passionate about, what drives you, what you're the best at, and align yourself with the biggest opportunity. Set high goals, leverage your strengths, and hold yourself accountable.
