Paramount Pallet opens largest pallet recycling facility in Canada
Paramount Pallet, the largest full-service pallet solutions company in Canada, has moved its Toronto, Ontario plant location to a new, larger space in Whitby, Ontario to accommodate continued business growth.
Paramount Pallet's new facility boasts 185,000 square feet of indoor production and warehouse space, 32-foot ceilings, and 34 dock doors. This new high-cube facility allows for storage of large inventories of pallets in a clean and dry environment. It is located just minutes from the 401 for easy access.
"We're truly excited about our new flagship facility in Whitby," says Paramount Pallet's President, Mark Sura. "We're especially pleased that it is considered the largest pallet recycling facility in Canada."
The move represents the organization's continued commitment to serving its customers across the country, creating more job opportunities in the Whitby area, and the ability to repair and recycle more than 5 million pallets per year.
Traditionally, waste management companies have operated using a simple "management of waste" approach to operating a MRF. Throughput targets and continuous operation (minimal downtime) were the main driving forces. The industry has changed however, and the focus moving forward is now on optimizing system performance and reliability, in conjunction with increasing recycling rates and a drive for a "greener" and more sustainable tomorrow.
When considering the addition of, or upgrade to, an "intelligent" MRF, for municipalities or private operators, the main factors should always be the client's (operator) current requirements, and evolving market needs, which include throughput, reliability, output quality, and adaptability. Equally important is a full understanding of what is really expected from any proposed system. Having an engaged and focused mindset for the project with the client from the beginning, will impact and drive the entire design process. This then impacts the overall project result, through to the productive, efficient, ongoing operation of the facility itself.
