Shropshire Pallets has released a new corporate video to explain its pallet manufacturing and supply capabilities in a more dynamic and meaningful way for the pallet buying marketplace.
The video was produced after the Oswestry-based wooden pallet supplier made major infrastructure improvements to expand its new pallet making division and wider availability of quality used pallets.
Perception reflecting reality
Explaining the rationale behind the video, Keiron Fleetwood, operations director at Shropshire Pallets & Timber Supplies, said: “Shropshire Pallets has seen significant enhancements over the past couple of years which allows us to better compete with the market leaders. As such, the video was produced to ensure the market’s perception of our business is in line with the reality by clearly demonstrating our enhanced capabilities.”
Earlier this year Shropshire Pallets expanded its new pallet making division by installing of a new state-of-the-art pallet making machine. The new kit has increased the firm’s capacity to make up to 20,000 new wooden pallets a week – increasing manufacturing output potential by 75 per cent.
The company has also created new jobs following new business wins for its new manufacture pallets and to help meet continued demand for quality used pallets.
Mr Fleetwood continues: “The video allows decision makers to actually see what we can do for themselves – rather than just taking our word for it. The video explains and evidences our capabilities, and hopefully, allows pallet buyers to make more accurate assessments of what we can achieve for their business.”
Shropshire Pallets manufactures and reconditions the most popular pallet sizes, including UK standard 1200x1000mm pallets and Euro size 1200x800mm pallets. It also makes custom pallets for businesses requiring bespoke sizes.
From log to pallet, the firm cuts its own pallet boards from its in-house sawmill using timber sourced from local FSC-managed forestries, saving customers between 5 and 10 per cent on the price of new pallets. Pallets are placed on stock ready for customers to call off for immediate delivery.
