Meeting your needs is our #1 priority.

We realized there are numerous pallet companies in the Louisville Kentucky and Southern Indiana area that may be capable of filling your company needs. So, how do we meet your needs and distinguish ourselves from the rest?

1. We are a custom design pallet operation: 
    We can manufacture the standard type pallet, as can most pallet manufacturers in the area, but we truly have found that our niche in the custom pallet that is too small or too large for the mass producing nailing machines that spit out the standard 4x4 pallets.

2. We are flexible: 
    We are capable producing a small number or a large quantity of pallets depending on your needs. Chances are if you called another pallet vendor in the area and said you need one to five custom pallets they referred you to Kentuckiana Wood Products. On the other hand, we have customers that we deliver products to three to five times a week every week.

3. We produce many wooden products:

    We manufacture a large array of wooden products besides pallets & skids.

Here is a few:

        Cradles for steel coils                    V-Blocks

        Pointed stakes                              Pipe dividers

        Cut stock                                     Pallet dividers
 
        Replacement boards     
                 Frames for vertical shipping

        Chamfered boards                         Drilled stock

        Dunnage                                      Wedges

        Blocking material                          dunnage and more     

        Crates (all kinds and all sizes)        Heat treatment kits


4. We are qualify oriented! 

Employees are evaluated weekly on their ability to follow instructions and in the assembly department employees are graded on the quality of the products they produce. It is not that we never mess up… we do, but we have programs in place to rectify a mistake, like our non-conforming report where the problem must be resolved to the customers satisfaction.

Also all of our regular customers have their pallets and skids specifications in our customer spec books. The specs typically include a drawing of their products along with “quality alerts”. Quality alerts are specs that vary from the norm, like when the customers asked for five nails per joint on their pallets verse the standard three nails, etc.

 5. We are professionals! 

We have been in business over 30 years. We have the best team of employees we ever had. The average length of employment currently is between 7 and 8 years. Turnover is at a minimum because Kentuckiana Wood Products is recognized as a good place to work. Our employees receive decent benefits especially for a company of our size; benefits like matching funds for retirement. Procedures and policies are in place to make everyone safer and more secure. Annual raises and bonus are earned and given for exemplary work. Customer service is so drilled into who we are that everyone of our employees know we do whatever we can, to make and keep our customers happy. 

Custom Pallets and Skids

 

Our niche is custom pallets built to your specs or we can help with the design. We can supply the standard GMA pallet as can any pallet vendor, but if what you need is a custom built pallet, then you will definitely want to call Kentuckiana Wood Products.
 
    
Professionally Heat Treated
  

   

If you export your product you will need heat treated pallets that comply with the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) Phytosanitary Standards (ISPM 15) required around the world.

We make sure your pallets meet the prescribed methods for heat treatment so that your product is not detained at some foreign port but instead arrives at your selected global destination without delay.
