When we started P1 in 2006, our vision was to create an enhanced service model in the manufacturing industry. We wanted to build a healthy and vibrant company that honored its customers and employees; creating a multi-generational team passionate about making products in the USA.
Early on, we worked hard to sell our model to potential customers and sought to solve the fragmentation issue in the industrial supply chain. Products were being purchased from hundreds of suppliers around the world, with shipments arriving at large assembly firms with fulfillment inconsistencies. Our team designed a business model to consolidate the supply chain and provide consistency in product fulfillment by having our customers place a single order on us. This allowed us to source, inspect, inventory, kit, package and ship completed orders directly to our customer’s assembly lines when they needed them.
This was the origin of our company name – Package One – since we specialized in supply chain rationalization and product inventory, kitting and delivery services.
From those humble beginnings, our company has evolved into a fully integrated supply chain network, with vertical in-house manufacturing capabilities, serving globally diverse OEM’s in the energy and aerospace markets through fast, extraordinary service and cost leadership. We went from a virtual supply chain to two locations with over 45,000 square feet of efficient manufacturing space with state-of-the-art equipment and processes combined with world class people.
Over the last decade, we have grown from a one-person start-up to a 100-person firm with an operating model that is vision and values driven, founded on the principles of service with a healthy and vibrant culture focused on executing a well-defined strategy. We have grown and have the resources to service large clients around the world, but remain humble, hungry and entrepreneurial in all our endeavors.
When you work with P1 and our team, you are not working with an average manufacturing firm. You are working with a team that is passionate about making products in the USA, whom honor their customers and employees and who are entrepreneurial in solving our customer’s toughest issues. After all, we were once a start-up and although we have matured as an organization, we still act like a start-up and treat every order as if it were our first!
Our origins matter to us. They define who we are and where we came from. They inform our values and behaviors. They established the foundation of honorable service we value so highly today.
