New Pallets

New Pallet Process

The sourcing, building and shipping of our new pallets.

Step 01

Hand Selected

Timber

Our appreciation for trees and the forest is the foundation where Michigan Pallet began. We understand what an essential resource trees are for this earth and do everything in our power to responsibly select our timber and recycle all what we don’t use.

Careful lumber selection leads to less waste and better quality wood for pallets.

We start by hand-selecting our lumber directly from the source. Careful attention in this selection process provides our customers with a better end product while keeping our carbon footprint to a minimum.

Step 02

Pallet Component Production

Our re-saw lines, where new pallets begin to take shape, is an essential and unique place. Custom engineered machinery that is designed specifically for Michigan Pallet allows us to create cut stock to build any type of pallet.

The six re-saw lines we operate are not only used to produce cut stock to our specifications but also in producing pallet/crating components for the open market. Our offerings include both high and low density eastern hardwood, pine, and heat treated versions of all.
