The APC Story
In 1970, the same year the Beatles broke up and the Concorde made its first supersonic flight, Alabama Pallet Company (APC) opened for business in Town Creek, Alabama, a small community in the northwest corner of the state. The mission then was the same as it is today: to provide high quality and cost effective wooden pallets and custom crates to meet the worldwide needs of customers. The company moved in 2003 to a five-acre site in Muscle Shoals and has enjoyed expanded business relationships with a variety of industries in north Alabama, northeastern Mississippi and southern Tennessee. Using a renewable resource — wood — the custom pallet shop also offers a recycling program and remanufactures pallets and crates for clients.
