Do your shipping containers need to meet ISPM 15 Standards? We have you covered! Popp Brother’s Lumber offers a cost-effective heat treatment option for all of our products, including pallets, skids, crates, and cut lumber.
Rely On Our Heat Treating Services
- One of the first pallet manufacturers in Minnesota to build a state of the art, in-house heat treatment facility, which has been operational since September of 2001.
- Our heat treatment system uses an indirect fired heat source that results in no degradation of the wood such as warpage, excessive shrinkage, exposed nail heads, and splitting of deckboards and/or stringers.
- Our heat treatment program and ISPM 15 treated wood pallets, skids, and crates fully comply and meet all standards set by the Interim Commission of Phytosanitary Measures (ICPM) in March of 2002.
Do you transact business overseas? No worries, we take away all the headaches and hassles that accompany export regulations for hardwood and softwood pallets, skids, and crates. Popp Brothers Lumber is inspected monthly by Timber Products Inspection, Inc and is in good standing with the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC).
