Sustainability has become a major concern for the pallet making industry. Skyrocketing demand has placed a strain on materials supply. While timber is among the most sustainable materials currently available, the use of hardwood for pallets has driven up costs and made pallets less economical to produce.
The search for economical and sustainable pallet making methods has led to a number of innovations, including the use of recycled timber and flat panel products like chipboard. These materials reduce the overall cost of each pallet, but they are often incompatible with traditional production machinery.
Stirling Machinery is at the forefront of the timber manufacturing industry, so we can provide solutions for mixed material pallet making. If you are using hardwood, softwood, recycled timber, chipboard or a combination of these materials, we can design an automated line that maximises your production capabilities.
