LPR has announced a significant restructuring of its UK pallet inspection and repair operations through a new partnership with James Jones & Sons (Pallets & Packaging) Ltd. The relationship will allow LPR to continue to deliver the highest quality service to its customers.
The contract sees James Jones & Sons provide a full pallet inspection and repair service for LPR from their Golborne site, as well as taking on responsibility for the management of LPR operations at Castleford and Stretton.
The relationship has hit the ground running at Golborne, with the facility sorting and repairing significant numbers of pallets each week. This changeover has not adversely affected output quality, with repairs being consistently turned around in the allotted timespan and with no reports of consumer issues.
Speaking of the changeover, Adrian Fleming, Regional Director of LPR UK and Ireland, commented: “Entering into a partnership with a timber pallet and manufacturing specialist as trusted and reliable as James Jones & Sons has really helped LPR further improve the service offering we provide to our customer base. The relationship has got off to a fantastic start with the successful changeovers at Golborne, Castleford and Stretton and we’re looking forward to building on this moving forwards.”
Gil Covey, Executive Chairman of James Jones & Sons (Pallets & Packaging) added: “We are very pleased to have secured this contract with LPR. The James Jones Group has expertise and experience in providing pallet inspection and repair services to all the major UK pallet pool companies and we have successfully followed this model which is proven in other European countries. James Jones is the market leader in supplying pallet timber in the UK and our experience in pallet repair services fits well with our company’s leading position in manufacture of new high quality dried pallets.”
