Looking Back, Looking Forward

It’s 2021! A New Year! Some people use the new year as a chance to reflect on the past year. Here at Far North International, we wanted to take a stroll down memory lane and take a look at this past year and our goals moving forward.

In 2020, here are the milestones Far North International achieved:

  • Doubled our website sales
  • Remained a COVID-free facility all year
  • Cut down on travels costs for the year
  • Successfully held computer meetings whether zoom or some other meeting programs
  • Gained more Mobile orders
  • Big Selling items: Our enamel panels and enamel rolls of wire sold out this year multiple times
  • We expanded our website and manufacturing to nails/screws and some plastic poly sheeting and bag products
  • Moved into more hardware products to expand our website and sales in general.
  • Received over 100 reviews with a 4.65 star rating out of 5

Goals for 2021:

  • We are closing our Joliet location and will be looking to expand to another bigger building later in the year
  • Expand into more physical hardware stores
  • Continue increased sales
  • Continue our excellent customer service
  • And MORE! 2021 is our oyster!

More about Far North International

Far North International started as a wire and plastic factory in Tianjin, China and has since then gained over 20 years of manufacturing experience as well as several warehouses and factories in both China and Taiwan. In recent years we have decided to expand to the U.S. and already have a warehouse in Illinois (we hope to have a bigger factory in the near future). We strive to provide quick wholesale order processing and a short lead time of 7 days. Our company also offers affordable products and sufficient inventory to help meet our customers' needs. Our main store centers around horse fences and vinyl coated wire, however, we also carry several other products for your pets, farms, landscapes, gardens, and more!

As a small company, Far North International runs like a family-owned business: we respect each team members’ ideas and are flexible for their needs. Every employee has a unique voice and is valued for their creativity and individuality.

Our mission is to see gardens around the world protected, to keep animals safe, and to care for the environment. We hope to give back to the community that allowed us to grow by taking up charity work such as walking 5Ks, volunteering at shelters, and cleaning up local parks.

We provide a wide range of products at low competitive prices, and offer solutions to your outdoor problems. Apart from gardening, we also supply items for your pets, decks, and homes in hopes of becoming a one-stop shop for your needs. Whether you require a heating pad for your cat or a vinyl coated fence, we’ll make sure you find exactly what you’re looking for on our website. We stay up to date with our knowledge of fencing, gardening, and new items out on the market, and we want to share that knowledge with you.

We pride ourselves on being part of the American Fence Association. We also attend trade shows such as the National Hardware Show, the Peoria Farm Show, and more. Stay connected to see upcoming events.
