Hay Creek Pallet Co., Inc., was founded in 2000 when the opportunity to acquire a small pallet rebuilding operation provided the means to produce and market pallets in Wisconsin, a product that many transportation customers needed. Today, that company has expanded to Hay Creek Companies, a manufacturing operation that has extended its reach to additional industries. Our operation consists of a fully automated saw room that produces our component parts, a new pallet assembly line, a repair and remanufacture assembly line and a pallet dismantle line - all fitted with or powered by some of the latest technology in the industry. The company is a full-service pallet manufacturing operation providing businesses in the food industries, the paper industry and a variety of other industries, with reconditioned, remanufactured and new pallets. Additionally, as a by-product utilization, the company also manufactures premium wood heat pellets, wood landscape mulches and shredded wood animal bedding by recycling wood waste material.
Hay Creek Companies supports the environment by manufacturing wood fuel pellets from waste wood. These wood fuel pellets are manufactured by compressing sawdust remnants from the lumber industry, furniture and flooring, and from forestry by-products as well as shredded wood from recycled pallets. The wood materials used to manufacture the pellets are only recycled wood products. Thus, burning these pellets is a carbon neutral process. All wood pellets manufactured at Hay Creek meet strict ash content, moisture content and heat output standards. We follow the guidelines for premium wood fuel pellets established by the Pellet Fuels Institute.
