Epallet adding equipment to grow capacity at Ohio plant

Pallet Distributors Inc., in collaboration with JobsOhio, Ohio Southeast Economic Development (OhioSE), and the Cambridge-Guernsey County Community Improvement Corporation, has commited $5.9 million to expand the overall capacity of its plant in Byesville, Ohio, creating 18 new jobs.

Founded in 1996 as Pallet Distributors, ePallet has grown into a multi-national business with an extensive production network including seven state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities and over 600 preferred partners across North America. ePallet purchases standing timber, processes lumber through their own sawmills and cuts, shops, and manufactures both new and recycled wood pallets. They operate and control an unlimited production capacity and are strategically located to deliver anywhere in North America with a sole commitment to provide the highest level of customer service with honesty, integrity, reliability, and professionalism.

The Ohio company is headquartered in Lakewood with manufacturing locations in Sugarcreek, Holmesville, Middlefield, Walhonding, and Byesville. All of the facilities include a sawmill, scragg mill, reconditioned pallet yard, and new pallet manufacturing operations.

“Pallet Distributors’ decision to expand and add jobs to support the needs of an Ohio-based client is an example of how the state’s strong business climate is spurring growth and investment,” said JobsOhio President and CEO J.P. Nauseef. “To assist the company’s efforts to hire workers for a new production line, Pallet Distributors will utilize JobsOhio’s Talent Acquisition Services to support Pallet Distributors’ expansion.”
