Presentation of Oplax Group

Oplax manufactures pallets in Tornio and Mikkeli, Finland and in Syktyvkar, Russia. Our seven production lines produce over 2 million pallets a year in total. About 100 top professionals work in our pallet production units. Our customer companies operate e.g. in the paper and board, food, construction, machinery, electronics and chemical industries. Trade and logistics companies are also our key customers.

Oplax is known as a reliable partner and a producer of high-quality pallets. For its longest-standing customers, Oplax has been a partner and pallet supplier throughout more than 20 years of its existence. Long-term customer relationships and a thorough knowledge of customers’ operations are the basis of our business. The significance of persistence and knowledge of the customer’s entire operating environment has become even more important in recent years as customer companies’ logistics networks and supply chains have become more complex. It is a matter of honour to us, to make sure that our customers can deliver on their promises to their clients.

To manufacture pallets, we use timber from certified forests, managed in compliance with the sustainable development requirements. Our raw material is in itself recyclable and meets well environmental concerns. We strive to comply with the sustainability requirements throughout all our operations.
