New standard pallets are assembled using Viking high-speed nailers at a rate of 1,900 pallets per eight-hour shift. Specialty pallets are assembled using pneumatic hand nailers. Lumber for the new pallet manufacturing is cut on our own Brewer Re-Saws. Specialty four-way notching and chamfering are also produced on high-speed Brewer equipment manufactured specifically for the pallet industry.
McNeilly Wood Products, Inc. can custom cut and assemble large quantities with its own staff; no orders are sent to brokers!
