The new IKP plastic pallet from WERIT goes to the UK

WERIT expands into new markets and now supplies Great Britain with the IKP pallet range through its new business partner

Altenkirchen, 3 February, 2014 – WERIT Kunststoffwerke ( is extending its operating range and increasingly marketing its new plastic pallets to the international arena. To this end, the company has entered into a partnership with Northern Case Supplies Limited who will be driving sales of the new IKP plastic pallet in the UK from now on. With the WERIT production site in Manchester and the new sales partner in Ellesmere Port in Cheshire, the company now has a broader UK base, enabling it to guarantee a high level of local service and focus on the needs of its customers.

WERIT Kunststoffwerke specialises in the manufacture of innovative products, primarily in plastic. The company’s portfolio covers packaging solutions includ-ing IBC (Intermediate Bulk Container), tanks, containers and pallets for industry, as well as heating oil tanks, electrical installation materials and sanitary installation products for building services. WERIT also offers a variety of spe-cial products such as plastic screws and nuts, acrylic products, and house and garden articles.

In order to meet the latest market and customer demands, WERIT has recently expanded its spectrum of industrial packaging products with the addition of the extremely durable and resistant IKP plastic pallet. The recyclable pallet material is the economic alternative to wooden pallets, combining both cost-related and environmental advantages.

A broader international reach with the IKP pallet range

Given the IKP plastic pallet’s great potential, WERIT has set itself the goal of promoting it in the international market. In order to increase its sales activities, the company has entered into an agreement in the UK with local dealer North-ern Case Supplies Limited who supplies standard and customised wooden pallets to the local industry. By introducing WERIT plastic pallets to its range, the dealer is adding another cornerstone to its business.

Due to the high quality, robustness, performance and durability of the IKP pallet range, potential customers to be targeted include pallet pooling service providers and – as the plastic pallets meet the most stringent hygiene re-quirements – the food industry. The pallets are easy to clean and recyclable, thereby fulfilling all environmental specifications. Their flexibility also allows them to be adapted according to individual requirements. For example, a wide variety of customer demands including antistatic, conductivity and hygiene specifications can be met depending on the pallet material used. The option of manufacturing in line with industry-specific requirements also widens their op-erative scope.

“Manchester is a very important production location for WERIT when it comes to serving the English market,” explains Felix Weger, Head of Operations UK at WERIT. “It is very important to have the plastic pallets warehoused locally in order to meet demand quickly,” he adds.
