The manufacture of pallets has come a long way since its early years. In the early days it was mostly done by specialized companies that sourced the trees and cut them into timber to allow for the right kind of wood to be used. This would then be machined and tooled into the right specifications to make the right kind of pallet for the market. The pallets manufactured were standard throughout the industry with very little difference between companies.
These days the increase in technological advancement has brought about a move away from this traditional pallet manufacturing. Over the years more and more companies are investing in their own pallet manufacturing equipment. This is due to the increased use of plastic pallets which are easy to manufacture. The advantage that has also been offered by this new way of manufacturing pallets is that you have the pallets being designed to the companies own specifications.
