Pallets – Standard & customised

We manufacture new wooden pallets to a high standard and to a variety of specifications. All timber is sourced from managed, sustainable woodlands at competitive rates. Stocks levels are monitored and we ensure any cost savings are passed on to our customers.

Bespoke wooden cases & crates

Our packing crates have slatted sides and top and solid base, leaving the contents fully visible. Most suitable for facilitating customs inspections, reducing the need for repackaging after a thorough investigation!
