Plastic Pallets and Wood Palletizing Solutions

Headquartered in Baltimore since 1918, Nelson Company secured a place on the early industrial timeline when we transitioned from our 1911 beginnings in wholesale lumber sales to wood packaging manufacturer. Today, we continue to offer innovative palletizing solutions and expert advice for saving money in the places you didn't even know to look.


Nelson Company distributes all types of plastic pallets, wood pallets, containers, racks, unitizing and protective angleboard systems.


We manufacture wooden and corrugated industrial packaging products, including custom wood pallets and crates.
