The other Packer family

The 122-year story of Packer Leather is one of incredible success and incredible hardship. Its battle is a snapshot of the fight for survival Australian manufacturing now has on its hands.

Usually our family business stories are uplifting, inspiring tales of success, but not this one. Well, actually I think Brisbane’s Packer family are inspiring, and they were successful for the first 118 of their 122 years in the tanning business, but now their story is one of adversity and pain.
