Our new line of shipping pallets, approved for use in Europe, were launched on 11 April 2008 by Industry and Trade Minister Theo Theophanous. Mr Theophanous said the Europallets would give Victoria’s export drive a further boost, creating more new jobs.
“Europallets are the preferred standard throughout much of Europe and Fishers are the first and currently only company licensed by the European Pallet Association (EPAL) to manufacture and repair Europallets in Australia,” Mr Theophanous said.
“As a result, Australian exporters will now be able to source Europallets locally rather than using hard-to-find second-hand pallets or paying a repacking penalty, therefore enhancing their competitiveness.
“Fishers’ membership of EPAL will also link Victoria to the latest innovations in freight and storage throughout Europe.”
The launch was attended by local and state dignitaries including the mayor of Latrobe City Cr Lougheed and special guests Thomas Ulitzsch, CEO of EPAL Germany and Shanghai based businessman Ma Zhengyi.
