About Inka pallets
INKA Paletten GmbH is the largest European manufacturer of disposable pallets made in a similar way like particle board (processed wood according to ISPM15).
The first INKA pallet was made in 1971 in Siegertsbrunn just outside Munich. The registered office of the company is still located there today. In the meantime, INKA has two manufacturing locations in Europe and two in the USA.
INKA pallets are available in all standard sizes, ranging from a ¼ pallet to the CP3 format.
Distribution is carried out via an area-wide distribution network with over 160 sales outlets in Europe and numerous other countries worldwide.
INKA pallets are manufactured according to a guaranteed pest-free process. Therefore, INKAs are preeminently suitable for worldwide exportation as a universal cargo carrier. Potential quarantine regulations of various countries (such as ISPM15 / NIMF 15) need not be taken into consideration when using INKA pallets.
Manufacturing / Factories
Modern manufacturing and control processes
Inka compressed wood pallets are produced at 4 manufacturing sites
- Oberrot (Baden-Württemberg, Germany)
- Ermelo (The Netherlands) und
- Dover (Ohio, U.S.A.)
- Sardis (Mississippi, U.S.A.)
Sorted industrial wood (such as old wooden pallets, wood shavings and saw mill debris) are reduced to chip form and dried. The dried chips are then glued with urea resin and then pressed into shape in specialized steel tools at great pressure and high temperatures. Modern testing machines ensure quality assurance.
Our manufacturing controls bear the prototype technical quality mark (in accordance with EN ISO 9003). This was confirmed by the TÜV Südwest following safety-related inspections.
