As one of Ireland’s leading packaging companies, Donpack’s extensive wooden crate and wooden pallet facility has the versatility and technical expertise to manufacture any size and volume of wood packaging.
Wooden crates and wooden pallets to meet any requirement
Serving various industries, wood packaging is chosen when maximum protection in transit is needed for example – heavy goods or high value goods from antiques to cars or even transporting delicate medical or electronic equipment.
A cost effective option, it offers flexibility in design and materials used. We can manufacture wooden packaging to any bespoke specification. Crates, pallets, ramps and frames are typically from timber/plywood and the wood selected depends on your needs.
We also make foam and wood combinations. We can include metal or other internal fittings.

WHAT QUALIFIES FOR ‘ISPM’
Solid wood packaging carrying an internationally recognised mark & Processed wood packaging (plywood/composite using glue heat and pressure)
IPPC symbol and a manufacturer’s code must appear on solid wood packaging. The National Standards Authority of Ireland issues these stamps to suppliers of wooden packaging.
REASON FOR ‘ISPM 15’
The opportunity for the spread of pests in wood packaging worldwide has prompted a World Trade Organisation treaty (march 2002) which puts the weight of 115 countries behind a range of measures first proposed by the International Plant Protection Convention.
WOOD PACKAGING REGULATIONS
Donoghue Packaging can provide wooden packaging that will comply with ISPM 15
From January 2 2004 all wooden packaging imported into the USA, Canada and Mexico will have to conform to ‘ISPM 15’
The European Union is expected to adopt the standard in July 2004 for products imported into EU member states from non-EU countries.
TO QUALIFY FOR IPPC
Suppliers must submit to regular audits to confirm they are operating an approved treatment for killing or removal of pests, these are special heat treatments or fumigation treatments.
