Wood Pallet Manufacturer - Northern Illinois
This company is a well-established supplier of new, used, recycled, and custom designed wood pallets; and is a specialist in providing critical pallet management programs, including warehousing, Just-in-Time delivery, pallet rental, and heat-treating certification for export. The company also manufactures pallet boxes (both solid wood and in combination with corrugated containers), provides custom crating services, and resells valuable wood byproducts from its various operations back into the community. A pioneer in new pallet production technology and the remanufacturing movement, the company has been a long-time provider of a full range of wood pallet options. With quality and customer service as its top priorities, it has always been proactive on issues of product structural integrity and keeping up-to-date on clients' needs and the evolving demands of the industry. The company enjoys a loyal customer base, a solid community reputation, and an approximate 25% share of the local wood pallet market. In the U.S., wood pallets constitute a $5.5 billion industry -- every year some 400 million new wood pallets and about 200 million used or recycled ones are sold. Pallet use is expected to increase substantially to meet the growing logistic demands of mass merchandising and Internet retailing. While proponents of plastic pallets have made inroads in some areas, the $20 billion global pallet market is still 90% solid wood, and this percentage is not likely to change radically. Wood has repeatedly proven superior to plastic on key issues of durability, repairability, ease of use, warehouse space maximization, storage safety, and most importantly, COST. A premium grade, heavy-duty wood pallet, standard or custom, can be produced for between $8 and $12 -- compared to $20-25 for a basic plastic counterpart and upwards of $45-75 for a plastic pallet with special features. This particular company is in an excellent position for continued growth in all areas of wood pallet production and support, as well as in other packaging and shipping capabilities. The company has begun to capture significant new business for its custom crating and corrugated pallet box services, and is testing the waters for entrance into the contract packaging and shipping supplies markets. Extremely well run, with tenured and trained administrative and plant personnel, the only weakness has been in marketing outreach. This issue can be readily solved by the addition of a sales staff and the creation of a website to capitalize on the industry's growing trend toward e-commerce.
