"Industrial Reporting, Inc. has been an active member of the Western Pallet Association ever since we started working with the pallet industry in 1977. Dating back to the early days of the WPA, our company must be one of the longest standing associate members of the WPA. I have found your meetings to be valuable opportunities to get to know the industry in the western part of the country and an excellent venue to develop long standing relationships. Your members are friendly, and your meetings typically contain good information to keep your members informed about issues that are paramount to your geographic region. Thanks for being such good friends to the Pallet Enterprise, Pallet Weekly Profile, and our staff over the years."

"For me, the information provided about changes and trends in the industry that may affect our business directly have been very much appreciated. In addition, we have been able to build business relationships with other members. This seems to be more important than ever, since networking is going to be vital as more companies are becoming regional and national suppliers."
