HARTMAN INDEPENDENT COMPANY ACQUIRES CHAMBERS PACKAGING CONNECTION

Hartman expands its product offering and family of employees by acquiring local stocking distributor.

Lawrence, PA – Hartman Independent Company, a distributor of fastening and packaging solutions since 1948, announced that it has acquired the assets of the Pittsburgh based Chambers Packaging Connection. Chambers is a stocking distributor of foam, plastic, and corrugated packaging and shipping materials. The purchase will better serve the needs of Hartman’s customers and greatly expand the materials and services available to Chamber’s customers.

“This acquisition fits into our overall strategy for growth,” said Andrew Hartman, President and CEO of Hartman Independent Company. “We’ve had a long relationship with Chambers and as an owner of a family run business, it’s not just about the business, but it’s an investment in people.”

Chambers Packaging Connection was the brainchild of Terry Chambers, the third generation of A.R. Chambers and Son. In 1975, Terry saw a need for polyethylene foam for industrial customers. After the sale of A. R. Chambers and Son in 1999, Terry created Chambers Packaging Connection to serve the customer base he had developed during his years with Chambers and Son.

“It made me glad to know that Hartman didn’t look at this acquisition as a business decision only. It was clear to me that the employees who have been with me for so many years wouldn’t have to worry about their jobs,” said Terry Chambers, owner of Chambers Packaging Connection. “Yes, it made good business sense but it also made good sense from the human side of things.”

The office and warehouse of Chambers, located at 7325 Penn Avenue, will remain open during the transition to the Lawrence, Pennsylvania location. Visit http://www.chamberspackaging.com/ for customer service and ordering information.

Turn In Your Old, Non-Working Power Tools: How Hartman Independent Company Will Celebrate Earth Day 2015.

Hartman honors Earth Day 2015 by encouraging those who have old or non-working power tools to dispose of them responsibly through a special Earth Day offer.

Lawrence, PA – How can a company that deals with steel, plastic, nails, corrugated, power tools, and other such nonenvironmentally friendly materials, honor a day like Earth Day? Is it possible to link itself to terms like, “sustainable,” or “renewable”? It is, and what made it possible was the original Earth Day celebrated in 1970. On Wednesday, April 22, Hartman Independent Company is honoring Earth Day along with the rest of the world. Bring in any old or non-working power tool for a discount toward a factory repaired power tool or discount on a new one, and Hartman will see to it that the old one is recycled.

The birth of the environmental movement helped to motivate businesses and individuals to recycle as a matter of course, and to recognize that the world’s resources are not unlimited. Hartman understands and embraces the need to “Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle” the steel, plastic, paper, power tools and related materials it sells or exchanges on a daily basis.

“There are definitely challenges for a business like ours when it comes to sustainable environmental practices,” said Andrew Hartman, Vice President of Hartman Independent Company. “We provide a lot of different types of materials for companies who need to do anything from transporting machine parts to building a house. Fortunately, we do have a strong recycling program in place. Our goal in 2015 is to continue to find ways to be even more responsible stewards of our planet.”

This year, Hartman is offering a power tool discount trade-in promotion. Anyone can turn in their used or non-working pneumatic nailer, pneumatic stapler, power tool, or compressor to the Hartman Independent Company to receive a discount toward an equivalent factory repaired power tool or a discount toward a new one. Starting on Wednesday April 22 through Friday, April 24, visitors can bring their item to Hartman located at 93 Mayview Road in Lawrence, PA., to take advantage of this Earth Day promotion.

“By offering this to both the professional and the do-it-yourselfer, we can give them an alternative to putting an item like this in the trash.” said Andrew. “We have the resources to recycle the materials used in power tools, as well as the batteries used for cordless ones.”
