Pallets, Skids and Lids
Quinn & Quinn manufactures both hardwood and softwood pallets, skids, and lids while also supplying used pallets in the most common sizes.
The softwood lumber is sourced from Canadian wood manufacturers who harvest lumber from sustainable forests. We have the ability to quickly and accurately mill the wood onsite to meet your specifications. This is an advantage over some of our competitors.
Our automated assembly machines build uniform, square pallets that minimize pallet issues in today’s high-tech packaging lines. The position of the boards is always in exactly the same location and the pallet is square so it will travel smoothly through automated conveying systems and be easily handled by autonomous material handling equipment.
When building small volume orders or large oversized pallets, the jigs we use for hand assembling pallets, skids and lids also build very uniform and square products.
We will build one pallet or 10,000 for you and our dry van delivery trucks will get the products delivered quickly and efficiently while clean and dry.
Softwood Pallets, Skids and Lids
A pallet that is defined as a softwood pallet is constructed from coniferous woods such as spruce, pine or fir. This wood is very cost effective and is a common material used to produce pallets that are used for a single trip only. If a softwood pallet is designed properly, it can have excellent load capacity and is the material most used for export certified pallets.
Hardwood Pallets, Skids and Lids
A pallet that is defined as a hardwood pallet is constructed from higher density deciduous woods such as oak or maple. This wood is considerably heavier and has better load capacity compared to softwood but it also is more expensive and harder to heat-treat for export.
Used pallets are a very cost-effective shipping solution and we carry the most common pallet sizes. Because used pallets come from various sources, they do have a various deckboard configurations and will have signs of being repaired and used in the past. We do not recommend used pallets for some of the modern automated packaging lines that many companies utilize today. Our expert, knowledgeable production management can easily advise you of your best course of action in this regard.
