How it Began
Kor-Pak’s journey began in 1976 when Jim Koralik realized his vision of becoming a business owner. He transitioned from being an industrial sales representative to an entrepreneur by launching Kor-Pak in Lake Bluff, IL. Kor-Pak’s foundation is predicated upon the firm bedrock of providing quality products at competitive prices while concurrently offering exceptional customer service. As a result, Kor-Pak has become a successful supplier to companies ranging from small firms to large public companies around the world.
Where We are Today
Kor-Pak continues to build upon its core principles with the objective of creating value for its customers. Serving numerous industries, including steel, rail, energy (wind), mining, and oil, Kor-Pak listens to customers and adapts to a constantly changing business environment.
