Hammer Packaging is a fourth-generation, family-owned business. Since the founding of the company in 1912, we have been at the forefront of high-quality packaging printing. As our President & CEO, Jim Hammer, likes to say “We lead. We don’t follow.” It’s at the core of our business philosophy. It’s in our values. It’s in our culture.
We succeed because:
This approach has resulted in a growth rate that consistently out-paces the industry. More importantly, year after year our customers validate our approach with a 97% retention rate. Equally important, our industry has designated Hammer Packaging as a “Best Workplace in America” company. With all that -- happy customers and happy employees -- we’re not complacent. Rather, we strive to continuously improve in all areas of the business using our ISO 9001-2008 registered Quality System and HACCP guidelines to guide our efforts.
It’s worth noting that Hammer Packaging is one of the Top 5 printers in North America when it comes to re-investing sales back into the business. In fact, we re-invest at a rate that is six times the industry average. Our objective is to invest in technology and innovation that elevate our capabilities and drive down our operational costs.
While our heritage is rooted in offset label printing, we’ve moved well beyond that today. We are constantly expanding our range of offerings and capabilities.
It’s true that we produce over 22 billion labels a year for some of the world’s most recognized and important brands. In doing so we’ve had to adapt to the growing and changing needs of our customers. In fact, that is at the core of what we are…adaptable. Our customers would tell you that we “do whatever it takes” to get the job done. That’s a big part of our culture, too.
Taken together, we believe this makes us very unique among our peers. One of a kind.
