PALLITE®’s COVID-19 Statement

PALLITE®’s COVID-19 Statement

We at PALLITE® want to reassure our loyal customers and stakeholders that we are doing our utmost to operate our business at full capacity, whilst keeping the health and safety of our workforce at the centre of everything we do.

In line with government guidelines we have made the following changes:

Increased hygiene measures on site

Restricted all internal and external visitors to site

Increased use of virtual meetings with our workforce, customers and suppliers

Ensured our workforce understand and follow the NHS guidelines for self-isolation

Worked with our raw material suppliers & hauliers to minimise risk of disruption

Increased social distancing in place at factory. Two-person jobs now single-person, only irrespective of any reduction in output

We are actively monitoring the situation and published guidance from the NHS, WHO and the government.

Our sales team remain available and willing to support our customers and their supply chains through these uncertain times.

We are currently operating ‘business as usual’ and are capable of shipping high volumes of standard products such as pallets and layer boards at short notice if needed.


It all started in 2008 with an idea – an idea that came from a group of people who faced similar problems to those you might be facing right now. Frustrated by the limitations of alternative pallets available in the market, they decided to turn an idea into reality.

That’s when PALLITE® was born.

PALLITE® is a range of lightweight, strong, clean and recyclable paper pallets from The Alternative Pallet Company that offers a genuine alternative to wood. A British company, we’re proud to say we manufacture the entire range at our factory in Northamptonshire.

Although we started with pallets, we didn’t stop there. In response to concerns raised by our customers about their supply chains, and by working to understand their difficulties, we further developed the PALLITE® range to include collapsible pallet boxes, insulated pallet boxes, layer boards and pallet feet (or Pallruns as we call them).

You see, here at The Alternative Pallet Company, we take our customers and their issues very seriously. We count listening as one of our strongest skills. That’s why we’ll take the time to understand your company and products, and really get to the bottom of any difficulties you’re facing.

We’re problem solvers – that’s what we’re all about.

That’s exactly how we got to where we are today. It’s not complicated really – we just focus on what matters.
