James Jones & Sons expands into pallet manufacturing

James Jones & Sons has announced that pallet manufacturing will soon be a part of its Australian operations following the acquisition of Rodpak Pty by its Australian subsidiary, Hyne Timber Pty.

Rodpak is a Melbourne-based pallet and packaging manufacturer that, like the rest of the James Jones & Sons Group, prides itself on strong sustainability credentials and a commitment to producing premium quality products.  

This announcement comes two years after James Jones & Sons acquired a controlling stake in Mayflower Enterprises Pty in Australia, the holding company of Hyne Timber and XLam.  Last year the Group acquired a majority stake in Rocky Point Pty, an Australian manufacturer and supplier of premium quality products to the nursery, agriculture, home gardeners and erosion management industries.

 Tom Bruce-Jones, Chairman of James Jones & Sons, said: “We are delighted to welcome Rodpak Pty to the Group. The acquisition forms part of Hyne Timber’s diversification and growth strategy and represents our first entry in to the pallet sector in Australia.”
