Wood packaging is essential for trade, both domestically and internationally. From equipment and merchandise to building materials, agricultural products or paper supplies, chances are it’s been shipped safely and securely with Alberta Pallet wood products. We build wood products for shipping, including standard and custom pallets, in Airdrie.
Using only top quality spruce/pine/fir (SPF), our machine-built pallets guarantee more consistent strength than hand-built varieties. Our 50,000 square foot facility allows us to produce large volumes of stock in order to provide our customers with just-in-time inventory, and fast, convenient delivery service. Not only do we provide standard sizes but we can also build to any specification. Our responsibility also reaches into recycling, where we strip down used pallets, harvest any of the reusable ones for resale, save metal parts for salvage and pass the savings on to our customers. Our products include:
Pallet design system
It is believed that the introduction of several invasive pests such as the brown spruce long-horned beetle and the pine shoot beetle into Canada is directly related to the arrival of wood packaging from other parts of the world. These pests can cause irreversible impacts to forest health and biodiversity and so in March 2002, the International Plant Protection Convention adopted the wood packaging standard ISPM No. 15, which recommends that all wood packaging shipped internationally be heat treated.
The American Food and Drug Administration intends to add an amendment to ISPM No. 15 which would oblige the Canadian Food Inspection Agency to comply with these same regulations for all pallets, new and used, into the States. Foreseeing this possibility, Alberta Pallet’s CFIA licensed kiln dryer can treat 30,000 board feet a day, stamping the wood in such a way as to be traceable to the country of origin and the producing facility.
In addition to supplying wood packaging for all our customers’ shipping needs, a section of our production facilities is devoted to supplying mattress manufacturers with the best quality wood bed frames in all sizes. To learn more, give us a call today.
