WHY A-1 PALLET?

VISION

A-1 Pallet’s vision is to provide “Shipping Solutions & Peace of Mind”. Working with our customers to find the best possible solution for their shipping product needs is key to helping them protect the integrity of their products.

 

MISSION

In order to be A PART OF THE SOLUTION ~ we will always ask, “What’s the best possible solution?” “What resources are available?” “How can we make this work effectively and efficiently?”

We provide our customers the best solutions to maintain the integrity of their products when they are shipped on our pallets domestic and worldwide.

We are Ready, Willing & Able to build and deliver custom pallets and value added wood products as promised, on time, every time.

We have systems in place to ensure quality.

We value our employees; they are a part of our family. We work together to produce high-quality products to ensure customer satisfaction.

Our systems and our people make the difference.

 

PROVIDING OPTIONS & SOLUTIONS

In order to provide the best possible solutions we like to provide options. From variety of wood used or specification in building the product and tolerances we can customize to create the right shipping product so the integrity of the products being shipped are maintained.

Once the desired specifications are arrived at we set the shipping products into our systems.

A-1 Pallet cuts to order; we are set up to cut and re-mill lumber on our own saws therefore we only cut what is required for the purchase order.

Using our “One-Piece Flow” style of systems we start the process at the cutting stage. The required lumber is cut and re-sawn to size and moved to the desired build station.

Just as we cut to order we build to order; products are built to specification provided by the customer setting up the build stations in a “One-Piece Flow” manner which ensures every piece is built with quality control maintained from the beginning to the finished product.

Producing a load of fresh pallets only when indicated by purchase order also allows the opportunity and ability to modify or make changes to the pallet specifications if required for the next order.

A-1 Pallet has been our preferred and principal supplier of pallets for many years. With friendly and efficient staff, they are wonderful to deal with. Providing quality products at a competitive price, A-1 is the company to go to for consistently proven shipping pallets.
