We manage the entire pallet-building process from logging to delivery.
Our sustainable logging practices helps keep our forests healthy! We manage the forest and collect locally-harvested logs that work specifically within our system. Our mill can process a wide variety of logs, which enables us to hedge lumber market swings and keep our costs more stable.
We developed computer-scanning software to optimally cut each log and increase our yield. With saws designed to run with a minimum kerf, we typically lose only a small fraction of the fiber to waste product. Our extensive cutback and re-saw capabilities ensure we further capture the most usable pallet material from each subsequent cut.
Capturing pallet material directly from the log allows us to cost-effectively process the high quality lumber into our pallet construction, providing you with a superior pallet. Competitors that rely on outside cut-stock vendors are subject to wide variations in quality, delivery and performance. By cutting our own raw materials, we can hold tight to our specifications providing you with a consistent pallet every time.
We can respond to any of our customers’ needs through several state of the art capabilities. We are able to manufacture and store food and pharmacy-grade pallets, and also offer an anti-mold dip which has been FDA approved for use. We can utilize an integrated air wash station, which blows compressed air over the pallets to keep them clean of sawdust. We can also utilize our large, in-house pallets to transport and store finished pallets and prevent your product from ever touching the ground.
If your pallets need to ship outside U.S. borders, you are required to meet IPPC regulations. We heat treat our pallets in accordance to the ISPM-15 standards. We fulfill this requirement without the use of harmful chemicals.
Our kilns have the capacity to treat six full truckloads of pallets in a matter of hours, helping us to lower our production to delivery times.
Our entire storage yard is fully paved, and houses a one-acre storage shed which provides a dry and clean environment for your pallets. Equipped with large ventilating fans, your product will stay dry and dirt-free. We understand how important it is for you to have an adequate supply of pallets. If you are altering or shutting down your production due to a lack of pallets, your current supplier is not meeting your needs. We inventory in excess of 75,000 pallets to ensure that this will never happen.
We use specially designed material handling equipment that allows us to carry four stacks of pallets at a time, and we are able to load a 48-53 foot flat bed in under eight minutes. Our shipping department works closely with our carriers every day. We are proud to partner with local carriers who share our commitment to delivering your order on time and in good condition. Drivers can pick up paperwork and loaded shipments from our facility twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
