Our Story

 

With over 32 years of experience and heritage, Chu’s Packaging Supplies, Inc. is a minority and female owned family business nestled in the heart of Santa Fe Springs, California. As our name says, packaging supplies is our specialty. Our goal is to provide top quality products, low pricing, and exceptional customer service. We pride ourselves in customer satisfaction and that will always be our number one priority. We have a 35,000 square foot warehouse fully stocked with products and four delivery trucks that are on the road serving the Los Angeles, Orange County, Inland Empire, South Bay, San Bernardino areas and beyond on a daily basis. We are a manufacturer, importer, and master distributor for many of the top name brand packaging supplies and we pass those savings down to our customers. Our team of highly trained Sales Executives and Customer Service Representatives are fully equipped to handle your every need from standard shipping supplies to intricate custom projects. Packing peanuts, packing tape, custom printed tape, stretch film, shipping boxes, gift boxes, labels, and strapping are just the beginning. Whatever your packaging needs are, our team will get you there.  At Chu’s, we don’t just want to sell you a product, we want to provide solutions. Think outside of the box, we’ll help you protect what’s in it (and get you the box as well)

In addition to our Packaging Division, we also have our Moving & Storage and Safety Divisions to accommodate customers in nearly every industry. We offer a full line of moving blankets, moving boxes, bubble wrap, carpet protection mask, moving dollies, and everything else you need to make commercial and residential relocating a breeze. Let’s get you moving.

The manufacturing capabilities of our factory allow us to produce the highest quality disposable safety wear out of non-woven polypropylene, microporous, and SMS materials. Whether it’s an heavy duty coverall for industrial cleanup jobs or face masks and bouffant caps for food handling and medical use, safety should always be a top priority. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

Over the years, we’ve built strong partnerships and ties to the community. We are proud to be members of organizations like the Santa Fe Springs Chamber of Commerce, California Moving and Storage Association (CMSA), and California Manufacturing Technology Consulting (CMTC). In addition, we’ve been proactive in multiple charitable events such as toy and food drives or sponsorship of local youth sporting teams.

From our family to yours, we would like to say “Welcome to Chu’s Packaging Supplies. How may we be of service to you?”
