About Us

McNeilly Wood Products, Inc. was founded by Patrick J. McNeilly in 1947 in Jersey City, NJ, as a specialty wood box manufacturer. As the demand for wood boxes decreased in the 1950s, and the forklift truck came into its own, wood pallets emerged as a reliable, low-cost shipping platform for industry. McNeilly Wood Products, Inc. followed the trend and is today considered the leader in state-of-the-art pallet production in the Metro New York region.

In 1981 the company was incorporated and taken over by Patrick’s sons, Patrick F. and John T. McNeilly. Today, McNeilly Wood Products Inc. is managed by Tim and Dan McNeilly, grandsons of the founder. McNeilly Wood Products has a full-time staff of more than 45 pallet professionals, and produces more than 4,000 new and reconditioned pallets per day.
