Wood Materials Still Dominate the Pallet Market

Wood continues to outpace the demand for other materials in the pallet market. According to the most recent 2017 pallet user survey conducted by Modern Materials Handling magazine, wood dominates with 93 percent of respondents reporting that they use wooden pallets at their facility.

54 percent of respondents say they will acquire more new wooden pallets this year. 62 percent will also utilize used or core pallets. 

According to the survey, more than half of the wood pallets that are used are the stringer type. Watch for news coming soon about our brand new state-of-the-art Storti nailing machine! We're excited about being on the cutting edge of the industry.
