The Rock, a Kamps Company, is one of the largest single location manufacturer of pallets and crates in the United States. Operating in over 300,000 sq. ft. our Coatesville, PA facility has nine automated nailing machines capable of producing in excess of 120,000 pallets a week. We operate seven heat treating kilns. We have the ability to not just heat treat but to dry pallets as well. We treat between 12,000-16,000 pallets a day to comply with ISPM 15. The plant has five sawing lines that cut 1 million board feet of lumber per week along with 100,000 sq. ft. of indoor warehouse space. The Rock manages our own fleet of over 65 power units and 300 trailers that service the Eastern corridor from Virginia to Massachusetts. All of this allows us to deliver high quality products at a competitive price.

We will assess and evaluate the construction, application, volume and delivery methods so we can provide affordable custom solutions that can be turned around quickly and efficiently to keep your production operations running smoothly and seamlessly.
