Pallets manufacturer and supplier Scott Group Investments launches new 'Scott Pallets' brand, which will absorb 'Scott ELM' brand; pallets help customers mitigate rising timber prices, aid market in meeting environmental waste reduction targets

DUNFERMLINE, Scotland , December 20, 2013 (press release) – As a result of a strategic restructuring of the business to best suit the current and future market requirements, Europe's leading manufacturer and supplier of new and reconditioned pallets, Scott Group, has announced the launch of its complete 'sustainable pallet solution' under the Scott Pallets brand.

Following the success of the Group's pallet and transit packaging recovery service which was established nationwide under the Scott ELM brand as a core service for customers managing rising pallet and waste costs, the Group has consolidated with the Scott ELM brand being absorbed by Scott Pallets to create an unrivalled and completely sustainable pallet solution for the market. This move will not only help customers mitigate rising timber prices but also continue to aid the market in meeting environmental waste reduction targets through the effective management of existing pallet stocks.

The ground-breaking pallet and transit packaging recovery service being run by the Group has already delivered outstanding results for its customers - during this year alone diverting approximately 14 million tonnes of waste from landfill, resulting in a £3.4m saving in waste disposal costs.

This former division of the Group will now augment the existing Scott Pallets offering which already includes new pallet design and manufacture, reconditioned pallets and bespoke pallet pooling to offer the market a complete sustainable pallet solution.

Alan Gibson, Managing Director at Scott Pallets, said: "This move marks our continued commitment to delivering our customers the best and most sustainable solution for their transit packaging requirements - helping them to reduce their impact on the environment, cost effectively."

With manufacturing sites across the UK and in Riga, Latvia, Scott Group produces over 250,000 new pallets and 150,000 re-conditioned pallets a week and is dedicated to helping its customers find the best pallet solution.

The Scott Group has grown considerably over the past 25 years through numerous strategic acquisitions and organic growth across the UK and in to Europe to become the UK's market leading and largest pallet supplier, the fastest growing packaging provider and a leading supplier of essential trade supplies such as tools, work wear and corporate clothing.
