New Pallets

With the use of high-speed, automated pallet machines, and a group of dedicated hand builders, our manufacturing team produces a substantial amount of new, custom sized pallets on a daily basis.

Able to build to your specifications, we can provide any size wooden pallet that we are confident will meet all your needs.

Whether you’re looking for stringer pallets, 2-way or 4-way; block pallets; winged pallets; skids; solid deck pallets; etc., we do it all!

Certified by the C.F.I.A, we are able provide heat treated pallets for your international shipping needs, all while meeting IPPC standards.

All of our pallets are stacked and strapped for safe handling.

Quality checks are done on multiple times daily on all new pallets to ensure accuracy and quality.

Crates

In addition to pallets, our builders are experienced in the production of wooden crates. We can supply fully enclosed crates, partial crates, plywood crates, and more.

Let our sales team help create the perfect crate for you. Whatever size and specification, contact us today!

Repaired Pallets

Our repaired pallet program brings in damaged/unwanted pallets from the marketplace for repair. With specific standards in place, pallets that are repairable are circulated back into our inventory for resale.

Pallets that cannot be repaired are stripped of any salvageable boards and/or sent to our grinder for chipping.

90% of our repaired pallets are 48 x 40 inches in dimension. Repaired pallets can be either stringer or block pallets.

While not always the “prettiest” pallet, repaired pallets are lower cost and very common.

With different dimensions, lengths, and grades of lumber on hand, we can supply various types of custom lumber products such as:

  • Stakes
  • Pipeline skids
  • Dolly pads & cribs
  • Battens
  • Cut stock
  • Banding groove
  • Dunnage
  • Studs

Lumber is sold by lift quantities.

Wood Chips

Equipped with a 1000HP HogZilla® turbo grinder, accumulated wood waste is
