Kamps Pallets has been contributing to recycling since 1973. Our founder and CEO, Bernie Kamps, started Kamps in 1973 by collecting and selling sawdust and wood shavings throughout West Michigan. He soon realized that pallets in good condition were being thrown into landfills. Bernie started collecting these pallets, repaired any broken pieces and resold them. In 1974, Kamps, Inc. opened its first pallet plant. Since then, Kamps has grown to be a leader in the pallet industry. Kamps is now known as a leader in recycling.
At Kamps, we believe that nothing should go to waste. If you walked through our plant, you would see remanufactured pallets built from boards previously used on other pallets and damaged pallets repaired for reuse (reconditioned pallets). If a pallet is beyond repair, it is put into a pile to be ground into mulch.
Kamps has taken its innovation a step further. Pallet wood and pallets are becoming a decorating choice of many. Kamps recognized this, and Kamps Krafty wood was born! When we heard about the Pallet Palooza event, we could not imagine a better place to showcase our latest product!
On August 13, Kamps participated in the Pallet Palooza event in Kalamazoo. Pallet Palooza was hosted by Goodwill Industries. At this event, individuals entered pieces made of pallets and pallet wood to be judged. Sponsor booth lined up to showcase their products.
