Plastic pallets help support vaccine response globally

PLASTIC pallets from have been used to support production of a Covid-19 vaccine across several continents.

The business was approached last year by an international pharmaceutical provider with an ‘urgent request’ for a plastic Euro pallet on five runners. revealed it was able to match the exact specification with its Qpall 1208 HR 5R. Initially 50 units were transported fast-track to Belgium. Enquiries from other suppliers to the vaccine manufacturer then followed, from as far afield as the USA, Argentina, China and South Korea, all requesting the same plastic pallet.

The pallets are helping to transport one of the vital ingredients that make up the vaccine.

MD of, Jim Hardisty, said, “It is humbling to be involved in such a significant project. We’ve supported the pharmaceutical industry with a broad range of projects during our 20 years in business, but this is by far one of the most satisfying. We pride ourselves on the speed of our deliveries and our ability to find not just the closest fit but an exact match for our customers’ requirements – and this project is a prime example of the quality of our service.”
