Logistics BusinessKing’s Award for Cardboard Innovation

PALLITE® Group has been honoured with the first ever King’s Award for Enterprise for Innovation 2023. The company was one of only 148 organisations in the UK to be recognised with a prestigious King’s Award for Enterprise, on Friday 21st April.

Employing 70 people, Wellingborough, Northants-based PALLITE® was set up in 2008 and manufactures sustainable products for warehouse storage, logistics, protective packaging and void fill from honeycomb paper cardboard.

Previously known as The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise, the new name reflects Charles’ desire to continue to recognise outstanding UK businesses. The Award programme, now in its 57th year, is one of the most prestigious business awards in the country, with successful businesses able to use the emblem to promote their products and services as the best in their business sector for a five year period.

Easy to install

“To receive this award is an incredible honour and a real reflection of the hard work the entire team has invested. PALLITE® was setup on the premise of a simple paper pallet, a sustainable alternative to the more traditional pallets on the market. Innovation has always been a key driver for the business, developing new product solutions for existing applications using our honeycomb paper cardboard. Our current product range includes protective packaging, shipping crates, pallets and most recently, our award-winning PIX® warehouse storage solutions,” said David Rose, European Sales Director.

“We provide easy to install storage units for large ecommerce fulfilment centres allowing them the flexibility to adjust the size and quantity of storage compartments relative to fluctuations in stock. All our PIX® units are constructed using the same honeycomb paper cardboard. One unit can be built in a matter of minutes with anything from 3 up to 400 picking compartments. We’ve seen such incredible interest and uptake in PIX® both nationally and internationally, requiring us to open our doors in 2022 on an additional manufacturing facility in Milwaukee, to meet the USA and Canadian demand. We have orders from across Europe all the way to Australia,” he added.
