“We are excited to welcome PalletOne and its 1,500-plus employees to the UFP family of companies,” says Matthew Missad, CEO of UFP Industries. “PalletOne brings a strong brand, a new customer base, and operating excellence, which drive us closer to our goal of becoming the preferred global packaging solutions provider and preferred wood preserver in the U.S.”

“This is a great opportunity for all of us at PalletOne,” adds Wallace. “As a strategic addition to UFP’s leading industrial business unit, we will have access to new markets, value-added industrial products, and resources that will help us grow our business and provide our customers with more value. Because UFP is committed to developing its employees and promoting from within, PalletOne employees will have new opportunities to grow their careers as well.”
