May 5, 2020 - Pallet Consultants Nationwide recently announced that its facility in Savannah, Georgia has increased pallet production, expanded its team and is well-positioned to help manufacturers, distributors and supply chains reopen or expand throughput. Throughout the Coronavirus-imposed lockdowns, the Pallet Consultants facility in Savannah that services its metropolitan area has remained open and active. This time has been used to support essential supply chains, produce spare inventory and prepare for when Georgia would resume business.
Savannah General Manager Joey Buroker is excited to have the capabilities and inventory necessary to support the refreshed need for quality pallets throughout Savannah’s distribution and manufacturing supply chains. “We’ll meet their needs easily. We have a lot of inventory and have even increased our service area,” said Buroker. He added that recent hires and expanded logistics capabilities put the facility’s teams and inventory in a great position for resumed economic activity.
All locations in the Pallet Consultants network remained open and productive during state lockdowns since pallet companies were designated as critical infrastructure by Homeland Security, says company president Brian Groene. “We have been operating as usual, with the extra precautions, and have remained fully productive. During this time we have built extra inventory to be able to service the companies that were closed or running at limited capacity due to the lockdown. We look forward to helping our customers and clients when they are back at full capacity, helping bring our economy back to where it needs to be,” he said.
Groene also said that assisting customers through these transitions has been a priority across locations, and that frequent communication has kept facilities and their clients on the same page. “It is imperative that we give excellent service to our customers in need. We have kept our work force in full to make sure that all customers are taken care of in a timely, efficient and consistent manner – from our friendly and helpful clerical staff, to our production teams and drivers transporting the product. All overseen by our outstanding management team,” Groene said. “Customer communication is always key, especially now. You have to know what’s going on with your customers. Early on we reached out to everyone to get a feel for how they were adapting and how we can best meet their needs. We’ve been keeping up with our clients regularly since then,” said Buroker.
