Unaka Forest
Products, Inc
Unaka Forest Products, Inc. began in 1972 when owner and founder Jerry Hensley began his logging operation. However, its roots sprouted long before that when, as a young boy, Jerry learned the logging trade by logging with a horse alongside his father.
Progressing from a
logging operation
 to a whole tree chipping operation and eventually into a scragg mill and pallet operation has been the journey of Unaka Forest Products, Inc. Jerry Hensley and his three children are, 40 years later, still maintaining a family owned and operated business. These experiences, the substantial amount of time in business and the dedication of each one of us make us eager to earn your business.

Unaka Forest Products
Wooden Pallet Manufacturer
The invention and use of wooden pallets have revolutionized logistics and warehousing worldwide. The humble wooden pallet allows items to be stacked, saving on warehouse space. It also allows for easy transportation of heavy and awkward products, especially when paired with a forklift.

Wood pallets are an essential component of any logistics chain, and you want yours to last for as long as possible. Unaka Forest Products is the best pallet manufacturer in Tennessee thanks to our high-quality wood and specialist pallet and crate manufacturing processes.

The Wooden Pallet
Manufacture Process

What sets us apart from our competitors is that we saw our lumber from any small logs left from our forestry processes. Most manufacturers rely on sawmills, which supply scrap boards for wood pallets. These boards are usually sub-standard quality, which results in a product that will break and buckle.

Since we use logs from our forestry, we cut out the middleman. It also allows us to keep our pallet prices low—a saving we pass on to you.

We use whole small logs so that we can ensure the high quality and robustness of our pallets. You’ll get a pallet that lasts longer and is more robust than that of any other pallet suppliers.

Thanks to recent improvements in our machinery, we’re now able to automate most of the pallet and crate manufacturing process. Our computerized Viking Turbomax 505 nailing machine can create over 10,000 pallets per week, while our automated sawmill equipment keeps up with the demand for lumber.

These automated processes allow us to pass on the cost savings directly to our customers. Every aspect of our process is as efficient as possible, ensuring that we produce excellent, durable pallets at prices that you can afford.

As an IPPC-compliant pallet company, we make sure that our pallets are heat treated according to global regulations. Heat treating kills all pests on the pallet, including mold and insects, which leads to a longer life for all our wood products.

The Supply and Selling of
Wooden Pallet
Pallet management may be difficult for many logistics companies. In addition to creating pallets, block pallets, and other wood products, we have enough space to create a significant inventory that caters to our diverse market. We store our pallets in a shed with a concrete surface, so that they’re kept dry and protected.

What this means for our customers in the United States is that we can deliver your pallets to your site within 24 hours. As we also control our trucking operations, we can provide you with all the pallets you need, whenever you need them.
