It’s very nice to start off our new PH Pallet blog with some good news! We’ve marked the completion of a £400,000 investment with the announcement of more plans for the future.
We’re a North West England pallet management and recycling specialist, and have just finished a £150,000 upgrade of our Dukinfield operations unit and a £250,000 bespoke IT system that tracks every pallet that enters and leaves our premises.
We’re now drafting proposals to extend and develop our recycling operations. The team wants to further enhance access to our five-acre site to increase the intake of thousands of used wooden pallets for recycling.
Mark Houghton, our partner in PH Pallets, says: “Since we started in 1988 we haven’t stopped expanding and naturally we’re now looking for the next investment.
“Even during the current economic woes we’ve been able to invest in our business because we can offer companies a source of revenue – where they may have thought there was none – by buying back used pallets and recycling them.
“We don’t deal in cash or averages: every incoming pallet is logged, sorted, graded and paid for thanks to our custom-built IT system, and our clients are provided with detailed reports of exactly what they’ve given us.
“Also, nothing from our site goes to landfill. Clients regularly audit us on this aspect of our operations because, even in an economic downturn, it’s an important benefit to our customers looking to meet environmental targets and policies.”
For a bit of background, PH Pallets employs 29 people, handles more than 30,000 pallets every week and we have a turnover of more than £2 million a year. We have a wide client base across many industries, including retail, manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, freight, warehouse and the food industry.
Exciting times ahead…
