As a national pallet provider, we rely on a strong network of hardwood and softwood mills which produce many different grades of lumber to meet the demands of our customers. We routinely travel to these sawmills to see firsthand the latest machinery and techniques used to produce wood for a variety of products including pallets.

In just two days, however, sawmill workers and other professionals in the forest products industry will journey to the Richmond Raceway Complex in Richmond, Virginia, for the 35th Annual East Coast Sawmill and Logging Equipment Exposition (EXPO Richmond) on May 13-14.  EXPO Richmond, as it is commonly known, is America’s leading trade show for the forest products industry.

During this two-day event, attendees can peruse the newest and most advanced machinery, equipment, and technology in the industry spread out over one-half million square feet of indoor exhibit space. Hundreds of displays will be present including the largest collection of sawmilling, kiln drying, harvesting, biomass, trucking, pallet manufacturing/recycling, material handling, and other supplies and services. But, there is still more to see outdoors, too.  The outdoor expo boasts acres of active, hands-on machinery and equipment demonstrations.

So, whether you need to connect with colleagues in the forest products industry, network, or compare current equipment to the latest advancements, this is the show for you! If you’re in the River City area or plan to make the trip to EXPO Richmond, be sure to check out the exhibitors previewing the latest pallet machinery and pallet systems as well as our friends at the National Wooden Pallet & Container Association (booths 49 & 50).

This expo is co-sponsored by the Virginia Forest Products Association and the Cooperative Extension Service at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. For more info on the expo including a complete list of exhibitors, hotel accommodations, and registration details, visit
