We do things a bit differently, and that's the way we like it!
Whittier Mailing Products
Founded in 1989, Whittier Mailing Products is a leading provider of mailing equipment and supplies to the mail and postal industry. The initial product that the company created was the Barcode Tagger, a machine that produced bar-coded tags and labels for routing mail through the United States Postal Service. Tray and Sack labels for mail function in a similar manner to airport luggage tags, in that they serve to “route” the mail through the postal system, just as a suitcase is routed from the initial entry point to the final airport destination.
The tagging and routing of mail is a major job, as over 213 billion mail pieces are sent annually to over 146 million addresses, 6 days each week! Each tray or sack label requires a unique barcode, according to the type of mail and destination. Tens of millions of tray labels are used each month by commercial and corporate mailers, as well as the United States Postal Service, in the processing and delivery of the mail.
Over the years, Whittier Mailing Products has developed customers in all 50 states within the U.S., as well as Canada, Mexico and Australia. In Australia, over 90% of all tray tags generated in the Australian mailing system are created on our barcode tagging machines. In addition to the U.S. Postal Service, major customers in the United States include, Citi Group, Bank of America, Sprint Telecommunications, Wells Fargo Bank, Harte Hanks, R.R. Donnelley, Southern California Edison, U.S. Senate, U.S. Treasury Department, as well as many others. Additionally, 160 colleges and universities own and use Whittier Mailing Products equipment and supplies.
In 2000, our product line was expanded to include a full inventory of tabs and seals commonly used by mailers. This move rounded out and expanded our product offering allowing us to better serve our customers. With warehouses strategically located across the US, our customers can get timely delivery of critically needed supplies.
The company’s recent move to a new larger facility in Santa Fe Springs, California is in accordance with a plan for continued growth and development. The facility houses the administrative and sales office for North America as well as serving as the western regional warehouse and distribution center.
