Peco Pallet is now shipping its signature red wood block pallets to manufacturers and retailers in Mexico. In December, the company registered “Peco Pallet México” as a legal entity and an authorized importer of record. This enables its customers to easily transport goods on Peco pallets across the U.S. border to and from Mexico.
David Lee, CEO of PECO Pallet, said, “This represents the next step in our company’s service expansion. Manufacturers and retailers throughout Mexico will now have the opportunity to partner with a pallet provider that is truly committed to providing high quality pallets and unparalleled customer service.”
The Yonkers, N.Y.-based company has established a manufacturing base in Mexico, with a plant in Guadalajara that will manufacture, repair and store Peco Pallets. Pallets built in Mexico can be shipped either to the U.S. or to Mexico, depending on customer needs.
To comply with international regulations, Peco Pallet applies certified heat treatments to all pallets shipping into Mexico and also to pallets shipping back to the U.S. Customers have already begun shipping on Peco pallets into Costco Wholesale’s five locations in Baja California and its 27 other stores throughout Mexico. Peco representatives are also working to gain acceptance at other U.S. retailers in Mexico as well as major Mexican retailers.
