1940's to 1990's
Fifty Years of Growth
In the 1950's, product lines were expanded to include corrugated products including circles, donuts, wrappers and cartons. Later, angleboard and slipsheets were added.
From 1940 thru 1996 Nelson was a major manufacturer of wood and plywood wire and cable reels. In the late 1980's we introduced our reverse distribution services, the early beginnings of managing the complete life-cycle of our packaging solutions.
1990's and Beyond
In the mid 1990's the company began to manage and track customer's inventory of shipping platforms. This has been expanded to other shipping products and is now managed by The Nelson Company's proprietary software system, Nelson-ART™.
Over the last decade, while maintaining superior performance in asset management, The Nelson Company has expanded into a global leader in "one way" or "export" plastic pallets. By offering a high quality, low cost, plastic alternative to the most popular wood sizes, Nelson has created and expanded a new demographic in the plastic pallet market place.
The Nelson Company continues to expand its locations and customer service staff to insure the most value to the customer. The Nelson staff is well equipped to find packaging solutions which make for successful project management.
Quality workmanship, durable products and a proven long-term commitment to customer service and satisfaction, coupled with competitive pricing and on-time delivery, make The Nelson Company a strong and dependable supplier to America’s industries.
