Case study

Longer lasting and safer pallets

A pallet manufacturer had a customer who was concerned about the high cost of forklift damage to the pallets they had supplied. The leading timber strip was being damaged by the fork tips, which resulted in pallets being taken out of production and sent for repair.

Our suggestion was a Birch Plywood strip chamfered on one
long edge of the pallet.

The chamfer would assist in guiding the forks into position, decreasing damage to the pallets. The trials were successful and, hastened by a health and safety issue at the customer's premises, were required immediately.

With support from Technomar, the pallet manufacturer was able to produce the new design pallets within two weeks and has since received on-going orders.


Never a 'run of the mill' plywood supplier.
