S & R Packing & Crating was founded in 1986 by Steve Thompson. He worked in the export packing field for ten years before starting his own firm. S & R was located on the State Port in Wilmington for 20 years before moving to its current location two miles south of the port. S& R Packing now offers in addition to its complete export packing services, warehousing, cargo marshalling and cargo distribution.
"The most important thing to a lot of people, is to belong to something that's hip or whatever. To be a part of something that's not society, just a clique. And they get real sidetracked trying to think like everyone else. They don't realize that you have to motivate yourself to do things you want to do. Some people just like going along for the ride. And those are the kind of people I don't get along with too well."
- Ric Ocasek (1949- )
