Packard is a master distributor of HVACR solutions for manufacturers all
over the world. Founded in Lima, Ohio in 1959,
under the leadership of Albert Taft, Packard Inc. stepped into the HVAC industry as a reliable source for surplus
electric motors. Our extensive history
with the strongest domestic suppliers and our vast experience with global sourcing, allows us to bring the most
innovative and highest quality products
available to our customers.
In 1972, Tom Campbell joined Albert Taft’s Packard team and immediately saw a need in the market for
a complete line of replacement motors, and
introduced the Packard line of motors to the market. In 1984, Tom moved the corporate office to Atlanta, Georgia and
purchased the company from
Mr. Taft in 1989 transforming the business into a full line master distribution operation.
Today, with corporate headquarters located in Kennesaw, Georgia, Packard has established 9 strategic sales offices across the US.
Packard maintains teams of 32 independent manufacturers’ representatives who help us service wholesalers and OEMs across the United States, Canada and Mexico.
We currently ship out of three distribution centers: Kennesaw, Ga., Indianapolis, In., & Las Vegas, Nv.
We represent over 40 brands as a master distributor of HVACR motors and
parts including top industry names as well as our own exclusively branded
products and private-label lines. It is our vision to be North America’s #1 preferred source for HVACR motors and
