PECO Pallet recently announced the opening of the first PECO-operated pallet depot in Hazleton, Pennsylvania.

This brand-new facility leverages the PECO team’s extensive depot experience to create a true center of excellence. In addition to sorting, repairing, storing, and reissuing pallets, this depot will also provide a place to develop operational best-in-class processes that will be implemented across PECO’s North American depot network.

The Hazleton Depot, which opened on January 2, 2013, has a focus on workstation layout and state-of-the-art equipment designed in an effort to minimize operator steps and maximize pallet quality. The new facility will be fully ramped up by July 1, 2013.

The PECO Hazleton Depot is located about 95 miles north of Philadelphia and makes an excellent showplace for customer visits, employee training, and other company events. There is a professional conference room for meetings or training sessions.
