Great Lakes Commercial Finance (GLCF) recently worked with Huntington National Bank to fund Rockford Package Supply! Howard Paulson, son of the founder Lloyd Paulson, is the current sole owner and President of Rockford Package Supply. The 504 program assisted Howard in the construction of a new distribution facility located at 1080 Vitality Dr. NW, Comstock Park, MI. They built the new building to better accommodate their customer base as they have outgrown their current location.
