With four facilities and a growing list of affiliated pallet suppliers, Pallet Consultants can quickly meet the needs of customers throughout the U.S. Gus has made arrangements with 16 other pallet companies across the U.S. to give Pallet Consultants the ability to retrieve and supply pallets in any state.
