Letter from Founder and President, Jimmy Wilson

Dear Friends,

For several years, I have been carefully considering a succession plan for Bay Wood Products, the company I founded with a group of investors 25 years ago on August 31, 1994. Time and time again, I came back to one company who stood out from the rest.

I'm delighted to let you know that exactly 25 years to the day that we started Bay Wood Products here in Robertsdale, Alabama, I have more good news to share. PalletOne, Inc., America’s largest new pallet manufacturer, has purchased Bay Wood. I will stay on as general manager of the PalletOne Baldwin County location.

In my heart of hearts, I know PalletOne is the best option for our employees, customers and the community. They understand what we do, and they know our industry. It was very important for me to leave our employees, customers and vendors in good hands.

PalletOne is led by CEO Howe Wallace, someone I have known and respected for more than 20 years. It will be an honor to go to work for a company and leadership team that I have such admiration for. I am confident we will continue to see great things from our plant and the newly formed business.

As always, it remains a pleasure to serve you.
