About Us

Holum and Sons Staff Photo

Established in 1933, Holum and Sons Co., Inc. has been family owned and operated for four generations.  Starting out in a small 500 SF facility on Lake Street in Chicago, we quickly grew, moving to a larger facility in the suburbs. Finally, in the late 1970's, due to our continued success, we moved to our current location in Westmont, IL.  We now boast a 40,000 SF facility; and even though we have expanded in both size and technology, our quality craftsmanship remains the foundation of our success. On March 1, 2018, Holum & Sons merged with Petra Manufacturing Co. to form Petra & Holum LLC.

Let Petra & Holum LLC accomplish for your company what we have achieved for some of our current clients.  With your ideas, we can DESIGN ~  CREATE ~ INSPIRE a special product or project for your company, and who knows, yours may be the next Best of the Best!
