Crate Expectations

When it comes to shipping mission-critical and large plant components, sensitive equipment or priceless artefacts over long distances, careful packing and crating is essential to ensure their safety in transit. Penn Elcom has produced a new catalogue which showcases their broad range of crating components, including everything needed to build durable, protective wooden crates.

Not all crates are created equal
Penn Elcom are experts in the manufacture of components for wooden cases and crates, offering a single source supply service to help streamline the end to end purchasing process. Centralising component ordering offers economies of scale, delivering significant cost and time savings, whilst also removing lots of the tedious form-filling and administrative tasks.
As specialist case and crate component manufacturers, Penn Elcom employ a range of modern production methods including laser cutting, CNC punching, injection moulding, lamination, powder coating and laser etching in the production of quality components purpose-designed for complex crate building applications requiring high levels of quality, durability and protection.
The use of wood as a reusable material is now increasingly popular in meeting industry sustainability requirements, as the cases can easily be re-used and re-purposed. Penn Elcom has extensive experience in providing the components for building wooden crates, particularly in the USA, where their use is prevalent.
