- PalletOne automated pallet nailing lines are now installed in over 70 UFP locations, with an opportunity to add another 20.
- Pallet One becomes the first fully owned nationwide pallet supplier.
BARTOW, Fla.– UFP Packaging has announced that its PalletOne business unit has completed an expansion into UFP operations nationwide, making PalletOne the first wholly owned coast-to-coast pallet supplier in the United States, according to a release.
PalletOne automated manufacturing lines are now in more than 70 UFP Packaging facilities, with an opportunity to add 20 more locations, giving the company unmatched scope in new pallet production across the country. When you consider that as a rule of thumb, it is only economically viable to ship assembled wood pallets up to a few hundred miles, this breadth of locations is particularly noteworthy.
“We are implementing the growth plan for PalletOne, which is integral to our goal of being a leading packaging solution provider globally,” said UFP Packaging President Scott Worthington. “This is an exciting time for our organization and for PalletOne, specifically.”
“Our expansion allows us to progress toward providing nationwide pallet solutions supplied by UFP company-owned facilities, ” said PalletOne President Howe Q. Wallace. “This will allow us to better serve our customers and maintain our position as a leader in the industry.”
Since its founding in 2001, PalletOne has been a leader in pallet manufacturing, offering various services, including custom pallet design, unit load consultation, heat treating, and pallet recycling and repair programs to ensure maximum safety and effectiveness. UFP Packaging purchased PalletOne in 2020 and has since continued leveraging its pallet supply expertise to provide top-tier products and services to all its customers. This expansion will bring that same service to the entire country.
“Backed by the resources of UFP, our unmatched geographic breadth and extensive resources will allow us to adapt quickly to supply chain disruption and efficiently meet the growing demand of our multi-site customers,” Wallace concluded.
