You might say wood is in our blood. It’s this natural talent that seems to attract the best employees to Alberta Pallet. With nearly 75 years of combined and certified experience in wood pallet manufacturing and lumber sales, you’re in good hands with our team.
Markus Pagenkopf, co-owner and President, grew up in the family business under the guiding eye of his father. His career literally began at the age of 10, helping the company process the products that have put Alberta Pallet ahead of the competition. Since then, Markus has continued the proud tradition of creating and delivering quality lumber products for discerning clients around the world.
Markus served as director for the Canadian Wood Pallet and Container Association from 1988 to 1999. He is also an avid fisherman and bow hunter. On summer evenings, you’ll find him somewhere on the banks of the Bow River fly-fishing, and in the fall, sitting in a tree stand with his bow and arrow.
Ben brings nearly 40 years’ experience in the manufacturing sector, with 36 of those years managing the manufacturing process in varying degrees.

As a former director and Vice President of the Canadian Wood Pallet and Container Association, Ben is able to help you with the diverse and often confusing world of regulated packaging for international shipments.
