Livermore Falls, ME – October 20, 2017 – PalletOne of Maine recently earned top honors from The Maine Wood Products Association for their contributions to innovation in the local forest-based economy. The annual “Pine Tree Award” was presented to managers of the Livermore Falls, ME facility, whose recent sawmill expansion project has significantly increased their productivity and efficiency.

This facility also has the capability of producing over 10,000 pallets per day, making it the largest pallet operation in the Northeast.
Maine’s U.S. Senators, Angus King and Susan Collins, will tour the Livermore Falls location in the coming months to congratulate them on this honor.
