1st EPAL Approved Irish Pallet Repairer: CJ Sheeran
Strengthening its quality assurance in Ireland, The European Pallet Association Ltd. (EPAL) has announced its partnership with newly approved EPAL manufacturer and repairer, CJ Sheeran.

As the largest open pallet pool in the in the world, EPAL contains some 500million pallets serviced from over 1,300 locations worldwide and has over 70million new pallets added every year. EPAL is changing the way pallets are maintained for quality assurance through its demanding criteria for repairers, which applies to the high quality materials which must be used for repairs. Only carefully selected and certificated repairers are allowed to undertake reparation work, and the materials used must meet pre-set standards.

CJ Sheeran is a major pallet manufacturer, repairer and specialised timber recycler based in Ireland. The company is conveniently located in Mountrath enabling the company to deliver its' product to major centres throughout Ireland with relative ease. A state of the art 150 cubic metre kiln enables C.J.Sheeran Limited to Heat Treat its' own timber approved by the NSAI and the Forest Service in accordance with ISPM15 standards. The company recently secured a final place in the SFA National Business Awards in both the Manufacturing and Environmental Sustainability award categories. It has undergone a comprehensive process and technology assessment to ensure it meets the EPAL repairer standards and requirements.

Paul Davidson, Chief Executive for the UK and Ireland operations said, “We are delighted to have appointed CJ Sheeran as an approved EPAL manufacturer and repairer. We recognise that it is vital to ensure that the quality of materials and performance is maintained throughout the life of the pallet. Sheeran’s location in Ireland offers EPAL repairer services to a new market.

We apply a very strict criteria to ensure the quality of our pallets is maintained, for example, only new wood can be used in the repairs and where compressed wood blocks have to be replaced, the supplier of those blocks also has to be a licensed provider. This stipulation also applies to the nail suppliers.”

The exceptional component quality, reliability and manufacturing precision of the pallets supplied by EPAL are critical elements in the provision of pallets that are not only fit to work in the most demanding automated warehouses, but are safer for users as well. Mark Sheeran, of CJ Sheeran Ltd spoke of the appointment, “We are totally delighted to have achieved this accreditation and confidence from EPAL but the important issue for our customers is the fact that we now bring another huge benefit to the table. To be the first is very significant as it is a market statement that CJ Sheeran is about all aspects of quality in its product lines. This is not just an internal view of quality but an independent assessment from the world’s leading European pallet pool, which ensures that pallets produced are inspected under strict quality procedures, at regular intervals”. On completion of the repairs all EPAL controlled wooden pallets are marked with a quality control marking nail bearing the EPAL quality mark.
