About us

Hazelhill Timber Products was established by our founder, Milo Henry, in 1969. Our initial focus was on the manufacture of wooden products such as bed frames and packing crates. We began manufacturing pallets in 1982. In 1986, we achieved the first license to manufacture Euro pallets in Ireland. From those beginnings, we have grown to become one of the leading manufacturers of Euro pallets and related products in Ireland.

The spirit of innovation that led us to seek the first Euro pallet license in Ireland is still a core characteristic of our company. We were the first company to build a purpose-built factory for manufacturing pallets and the first to achieve ISO 9001 certification.

Our customer base has expanded over the years and we have a significant number of multinational, national, and local customers in a range of industries including healthcare, food and drink, medical devices, construction and engineering. Our factory has expanded to cover a three-acre site and we have 35 full-time employees.
