thankful for the eclipse
We’re thankful for the Great Solar Eclipse of 2017!

The leaves are falling, the days are shorter, the nights are cozier, and pumpkin spice is all the rage. While these hallmark staples of autumn are brief, we must take time to enjoy it before the long winter settles in. Hopefully, we’ll all get the chance to appreciate the season alongside family and friends this Thanksgiving and through the weekend ahead.

But, before we head out to savor that ‘limited time’ pumpkin spice yogurt or pumpkin spice cheerios (yes—they’re both real!), we wanted to share what Rose Pallet is thankful for each and every day:

  1. Family. This year, our immediate family grew by one. Our vice president, Amy Angellotti, gave birth to her first child in August. We’re so in love with baby Harper!
  2. Employees. The best, most positive, and dynamic people make for the very best, most positive, and dynamic work environment.
  3. Customers. You work in a variety of markets, all of which have different supply chain needs; yet each of you chose to partner with us for your pallet management…thank you!
  4. Nature. Of course, we wouldn’t be in business without the renewable and sustainable resource of wood found in nature. But, this year, we also got to witness a marvelous natural phenomenon. The total solar eclipse arrived at Rose Pallet on a Monday in August and we were prepared with an eclipse viewing party.
  5. New Business Ventures. Did you know that Rose Pallet now sells custom wooden art made from pallets and distressed lumber? Check it out…
  6. The NWPCA. The National Wooden Pallet & Container Association provides invaluable resources, education and networking opportunities to wood packaging professionals like us.
  7. The Pallet Design System™ (PDS). Rose Pallet is proud to incorporate PDS software into our operation because it helps our customers reduce costs, minimize product damage, and increase safety throughout the unit load handling system.
  8. Biobased Pallets. As an active user of PDS, Rose Pallet can now design pallets in such a way that it requires less fossil fuel to make and transport, qualifying it for the USDA Biocertified seal as a biobased product.
  9. Recycling. Our industry is responsible for diverting pallets away from landfills through recovery, reuse, and repurposing or upcycling.
  10. High-Shipping Season. We’re right in the midst of it. This is the time of year when companies ramp up production and shipments, which increases pallet demand.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone…Thank you for your business!
