Düsseldorf, 15th June 2015 – EPAL Euro pallets’ significant upward trend, which had already begun last year with an increase of 3 percent in the production figures, is continuing. In the first quarter of 2015, 7.25 percent more EPAL pallets were produced than in the equivalent period in 2014. That’s 1.15 million more new EPAL Euro pallets than in the first quarter of 2014.
The number of licensees also increased considerably in the first quarter of 2015: From 1,478 in the first quarter of 2014 to 1,520 in 2015. Both developments reflect the high level of acceptance that EPAL Euro pallets have in the market. Martin Leibrandt, CEO of the European Pallet Association e.V., said of the figures for the current quarter: “I’m very pleased with this positive development, and I assume that the positive trend will continue in the coming quarters.”
