Northern Pallet was formed in 1980 by utilizing the assets of A One Pallet Company, which Steve Gris had owned and operated since 1972, to perform pallet repairs. While structuring the new corporation, Northern Pallet reviewed its business philosophy, expanded its territory and purchased a truck fleet and a 7,500-square-foot building on three acres. Recognizing that its geographical location in a low-cost area allowed for competitively priced service to distant metro areas, the company expanded by servicing companies in the larger cities in a 250-mile radius of its Factoryville, Pa., site. Its territory has continued to grow. Today we have no geographical boundaries and our recycled products ship as far away as Canada and China.
