We have successfully secured an EPAL license to manufacture new EPAL Euro pallets at our Barry site.
Manufactured on our new state-of-the-art Cape tandem pallet machine, we now have the capacity to produce 4,000 Euro pallets per shift at Barry alone. Added to this, there are currently two kilns on site with the combined capacity for 1800 pallets per day, ensuring we keep up with growing customer demand for ISPM15 and kiln-dried pallets.
Scott Pallets is the UK’s largest supplier of EPAL Euro pallets and now holds an EPAL licence for manufacturing new Euro pallets at three strategic sites across the UK: Barry, Peterborough and Burtisland, as well as an EPAL repairer licence at Bathgate, Bristol, Derby and Rotherham.
Despite Covid-19 and the resulting economic slump, EPAL pallet production has continued to increase with a total of 123.5 million EPAL load carriers produced and repaired globally during 2020*. Notwithstanding the continued hike in timber prices, production of EPAL pallets grew by 1.14% to 97.3 million pallets in 2020*.
EPAL Euro pallets meet the most stringent requirements for safety and reliability, and the production of these pallets was considered “essential” by many European countries throughout lockdowns as they are critical for the transportation and continued supply of vital goods such as food, medicine and other consumer goods. Scott Pallets was proud to play its part in maintaining these essential supply chains.
About EPAL – The European Pallet Association
The European Pallet Association (EPAL) Was founded in 1991 as the umbrella association of licensed producers and repairers of EPAL load carriers. EPAL awards licences to carefully checked producers and repairers. These undergo continual and independent quality assurance inspections by external companies to ensure consistently high quality.
EPAL pallets are produced from sustainably grown, CO2-neutral wood, can be repaired and recycled, and reduce transport distances thanks to the high level of availability.
