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.


PALLITE® – The Alternative Pallet Company will showcase the capabilities of a £100,000 technology, which has put the company at the forefront of secure packaging design, at the Multimodal conference in Birmingham next month. Using versatile CNC technology, PALLITE® can successfully add bespoke locators and fitments to boxes that offer protection for items with irregular shapes. By offering a more secure fit by design, a PALLITE® pallet box resists movement and reduces the risk of damage more effectively than its corrugate equivalent. The capabilities of the new machine allow for the successful combination of technology with PALLITE® materials. It will be showcased at Multimodal 2018, the UK and Ireland’s premier freight transport, logistics and supply chain management event, taking place at the NEC from 1-3 May, as well as Automechanika Birmingham 2018, the UK’s leading exhibition for the automotive aftermarket and vehicle production sector, taking place at the NEC from 5-7 June. The PALLITE® Pallet Box is well suited to the automotive industry and has already been adopted by numerous organisations. With a collapsible design that is known for strength and with a 25mm reinforced honeycomb wall, a PALLITE® Pallet Box is proven to withstand even the most turbulent of journeys.
We have made this significant investment at a time when the mantra of ‘work smarter rather than harder’ has never been more relevant to manufacturing. We pride ourselves on providing solutions that ultimately lead to a cash saving for all our customers. The state-of-the art CNC cutter, which has a 6x3m working area, aims to not only increase production capabilities and capacity, but also extend the PALLITE® offering. This is all part of the next phase of evolution from a company looking to meet the growing demand for the company’s award-winning PALLITE® range.
Patrick Mulhall, Managing Director
The equipment can readily switch between specifications to ensure a slick service. The new CNC capability means that the PALLITE® range can now satisfy more requests from within key industries as well as explore entirely new sectors with an ability to create both fitments and locators. PALLITE® offers a genuine alternative to wood through its innovative range of lightweight, strong, clean and recyclable paper transit packaging designed to reduce the total cost of delivery. Born from an idea to counter the frustrations and limitations of other pallet types –the company is changing the way goods are transported through its ultra-lightweight, yet extremely strong paper transit packaging. The company manufactures its entire range at a factory in Northamptonshire and supplies a range of sectors, including automotive, pharmaceutical and food industries, as well as exporting, where PALLITE® is able to significantly reduce air freight cost savings through weight reduction.
