Yellow Pallet supplies resins, spare parts, maintenance and 24/7 monitoring via a remotely controlled software system.
The quality of the pallets are key for all the customers of the factories. Yellow Pallet offers the resins according to proprietary recipes through selected suppliers. Yellow Pallet offers spare parts meeting the maintenance schedules required for efficient production and quality production. A pallet from a Yellow Pallet factory must have the same quality everywhere to the benefit of all factories and customers.
The know-how on harvesting is crucial for the efficient growth and use of banana stems. Yellow Pallet has multiple solutions for harvesting based on fruit-stem and stem-only plantations, using waste stems or specifically grown stems for the purpose of using the fiber. Yellow Pallet can supply the seeds for a special disease resistant variety leading to a plantation that produces 4-6 more dry fiber than a wooden forest.
Yellow Pallet's after sales service includes maintenance and 24/7 monitoring.
Yellow Pallet offers to monitor the production parameters and maintenance status of the factories.
A pallet produced in a Yellow Pallet factory must have the same quality everywhere to the benefit of all factories and customers.
Yellow Pallet provides consultancy services for using waste stems, pinzottes or specifically grown stems for the purpose of using the fiber. Together with Wageningen University and Research and in-country banana experts the best harvesting model can be determined for a specific situation.
