India’s wood packaging material market is expanding rapidly due to the increasing number of businesses exporting goods. Wooden pallets and containers are essential for safely transporting products, and their cost-effectiveness ncompared to plastic alternatives is driving growth.
The market is segmented into wooden pallets and containers, and the materials are widely used in industries such as food and beverage, grocery, telecommunications, automotive, and construction. The ability to reuse and repair wood packaging materials is a crucial advantage, and manufacturers are introducing stackable pallets to reduce floor space and transportation costs. Woodpecker is a reputable manufacturer of wooden packaging products such as pallets, crates, boxes, and cable drums using various types of wood.
Customers in the wood packaging industry need help with significant challenges, particularly regarding quality. Knots and holes are common issues that affect the quality of the products. Woodpecker has developed a solution to these challenges by assembling a team of quality engineers, including supervisors, to monitor the manufacturing process and operator performance. It has also implemented a rigorous quality inspection process, creating Pre-Dispatch
Inspection Reports (PDIRs) for each lot manufactured, which are delivered to clients before each delivery. Additionally, incoming raw materials are subjected to quality testing, and any that fail to meet Woodpecker’s standards are rejected. Woodpecker overcame initial challenges in finding good clients and suppliers by offering superior products at a lower cost. As its business grew, it acquired more space and now has units in Goa and Kerala. “Woodpecker’s commitment to quality ensures that customers receive high-quality products every time”, says K.M. Lukose, Founder.
