Our Company

Company History

Willow Brae Pallets was formed in 1972 by John A. Weber, a Waterloo County farmer and sugar bush operator (pictured above). John’s farm is located just outside of St. Jacob’s, Ontario. In the late 1960s, John began to collect broken pallets from local businesses to use them as fuel for the sugar shanty at Maple Syrup time. John found that there were more pallets available to him than he could possibly burn, so he began repairing them on his farm for re-sale.
