From the Beginning, Building a Better future

The Pallet Foundation began in 1996 by a group of very dedicated individuals who each pledged $10,000 to set up this organization. This group recognized the need to have funds available to take on very specific projects in three core areas: education, research, and marketing, while promoting the industry to end-user markets. Today, the Pallet Foundation funds critical research, data collection and ongoing improvements to the Pallet Design Systemâ„¢. These and other projects truly make a difference for the wood packaging industry and benefit all of our businesses.
