Auto Pallets

Auto Pallets-Boxes, Inc. (APB) evolved out of a transportation company which was founded in 1934 by Mitchell Eli Foster. Corporate_Office.gif (247454 bytes) In 1958, a contract was signed to haul wooden pallets for Ford Motor Co. in Dearborn, Michigan, thus commencing the first wooden pallet recycling program in the Midwest.  Incorporated in 1963, Auto Pallets is now operated by Mitchell B. Foster and his son Charles M. Foster.  APB is still operating the same facility in Romulus, MI and has expanded to include five other Recycling locations.  Auto Pallets still operates its own fleet of trucks and drivers and currently recycles 50,000 pallets per week.  For more than forty years, APB has been providing like-new quality wooden pallets at a significant discount to a vast network of satisfied customers.

Action Pallets

In 1983, Mitchell B. Foster formed Action Pallets out of a need to offer customers the option to purchase newly manufactured pallets made to precise specifications.  Action Pallets acquired a mill near Port Huron, MI while developing working relationships with an extensive array of pallet mills throughout the Midwest.  In 1997, Action Pallets acquired a mill near Jackson, MI which has been steadily growing its business and buying new equipment.  Currently operating its own high production Brewer Gang saw system to ensure exact board specifications and uniformity among cuts, Action Pallets can notch, chamfer, label or color code pallets per customer specifications.
