Warren Kruger CEO stated, “We anticipate driving top line sales during the next fiscal year and will continue to be diligent and cognizant of our need to drive down costs of production through innovation, automation, and scale focusing on providing returns that our shareholders’ expect. Since last quarter’s announcement of a new machine, two additional new machines have been placed into production to accommodate growing demand for Greystone’s products. Much of this demand is for a newly designed pallet being manufactured and sold to a lease pool customer that rents the pallets. The combination of strength, standardization, ease of cleaning, and recyclability are driving customer conversion from wood to plastic. Greystone has the best-engineered injection molded pallet line in the world with innovative designs allowing superior racking strength, high coefficient of friction anti-skid solutions, proprietary freezer additives allowing for use in environments of -30 degrees Fahrenheit, and utilizing 100% recycled and recyclable plastic content.”
Greystone Logistics reports that its technology, including that used in its injection molding equipment, proprietary blend of recycled plastic resins and patented pallet designs, allows production of high-quality pallets quickly and at lower costs than many processes. The recycled plastic for its pallets helps control material costs while reducing environmental waste and provides cost advantages over users of virgin resin. Excess plastic not used in pallet production is reprocessed for resale.
