How it all started
Gyllsjö Träindustri was founded in 1946 by the brothers Ivar and Tore Svensson. Later May Svensson joined the company.
In the beginning they produced fruit and vegetable boxes, among others to Helsingborg Fryshus (nowadays Bring).
The following year Helsingborg Fryshus aquired one of the first forklift in Sweden and Gyllsjö was asked if it also could deliver pallets. This proved to be a profitable business and soon had changed the production to only manufacture pallets.
In the late 40s, SJ (Swedish railway) realized the need for a standard pallet that could be used for transportation. They contacted Gyllsjö and together they developed the pallet which was called SJ pallet which we call Euro pallet today.
Compared with previous models of pallets, which often resembled the American pallets which arrived in Europe during the war, as was the Euro pallet a revolutionary product. It was both stronger, lighter and more durable and made quick success. Moreover, the Euro pallet was a four-way pallet which made it much more flexible and easier to manage.
At a meeting at the beginning of the 50th century in Paris by the International Union of Railways (UIC) was adopted SJ pallet as a European standard and called later the Euro pallet. We are naturally proud to have been involved in developing a product manufactured in multimillion editions and we continue to work in the same spirit of innovation and new thinking as Ivar, Tore and Maj Svensson did for more than 75 years ago.
