Combination Pallets

Combo/Hybrid Pallets are pallets built with a mixture of new and used components. Combo pallets can have new stringers and used deck boards or new deck boards and used stringers. If we do not have your size pallet available in reconditioned form, you might consider the combo pallet. In some cases a pallet user may have only a few critical dimensions on the pallet. By using new material for the critical dimensions it would allow you to basically custom-tailor re-purposed pallets.

Crate Design

In addition to pallets, we also design and manufacture wood crating or boxes for virtually any sized cargo being shipped domestically or overseas. This includes products that are oversized, overweight or difficult to handle. We provide complete package engineering services down to the finest detail to assure maximum protection during transit so its contents arrive at their final destination fully intact.

Pallet Repair

Odd sized pallets are put through a teardown machine and our company reclaims the wood for use on pallets.

Pallet Recycling

Pallets that can no longer be circulated and/or do not have reusable lumber, are sent to a recycling center where the wood is turned into mulch. Grocery or GMA pallets: We recycle grocery pallets, i.e., 48" x 40" four-way entry pallets, are repaired, graded and sold based on each pallet's condition. A brief description of each grade follows:

Premium A grade

These pallets are our highest grade recycled pallet and are used in large wholesale club operations. These pallets do not have any plated stringer repairs, painted or colored stringers and all of these pallets have 6" leading edge boards. No softwood lumber is used in these pallets.

# 1 Grade

These pallets are similar to Premium A grades, however they may include some plated stringer repairs, colored (painted) stringers, and may have 4" and/or 6" leading edge boards.

#2 Grade

These pallets contain one or more double or sister stringer repairs per pallet. These pallets are our most economical grocery or GMA pallet.
