Industrial Wood, Custom Crates & Pallets for the
Automotive Industry

Automotive Packaging Solutions You Can Count On

Often working within a global environment, the automotive industry is a very complex market with an equally complicated supply chain, and a very unique set of needs to transport their products safely.

Whether it’s a large, heavy vehicle component part, or a lighter, sensitive piece of automotive technology, getting the right packaging solution is critical.

Not only are Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), suppliers, and after market distributors looking for flexibility in material choices, design expertise, and testing capabilities, but there’s also an increasing need for vendor managed inventor (VMI) and JIT deliveries.

The Conner Advantage

Consistent Quality Across Every Order Matters

After nearly 40 years of working with all types of industries, including the automotive industry, we have a keen understanding of just how important consistent quality is to our customers.  That’s why we’ve put a highly effective Quality Program in place throughout all our plants that includes regular quality audits.

Leverage Our Buying Power to Gain Tremendous Savings

Forget about paying premium prices for smaller product runs with multiple suppliers. As the largest buyer of industrial grade lumber in the United States, our volume pricing gives you tremendous savings and increased profits.

Never Worry About Getting Your Supplies On Time Again

Getting the wood supplies you need on time, every time, is crucial to keeping your production lines moving.  While most industrial wood suppliers have such a poor track record for on-time delivery rate that they don’t even bother tracking it, we’ve reached over 97% OTD this year – and it’s even higher for our preferred customers.

Export Compliance Made Simple and Dependable

We continue to be at the forefront of the heat treatment and export compliance requirements for shipping outside of the United States.  That means that each of our plants have the capability of providing the necessary stamps and documentation to get your products safely past inspection.

Helping to Keep Your Company Green and Sustainable

Lumber is the ultimate sustainable and green packaging solution from start to finish.  We incorporate wood waste green programs based on customer needs, and work with customer locations to keep lumber out of landfills with customized wood sweep programs.

Recent Projects

Recent Project:  Armored Glass Crates

Conner works with a wide variety industries, including several companies within the automotive industry.

Although it’s a little difficult to see in the image on the right, these are crates that we designed for an armored glass manufacturer.  These custom crates hold the glass used to outfit armored personnel carriers that are used by the military.

In the image, the crates are stacked on top of each other.  When they’re transported, each crate will easily stack on a truck or plane, while keeping the glass inside safe – even if they’re transported to the other side of the world.

Recent Project:  Windshield Manufacturer

As a major windshield manufacturer, another one of the Automotive companies that we worked with recently needed a way to safely transport windshields to to end users for installation.

As you can see from the picture on the left, we designed a specialized crate that combines wood, corrugate, foam, rubber, and plastic ties to not only cushion and protect the windshields, but also to prevent them from shifting during transport.  They’re also designed in such a way that they’re easy for the end user to remove from the packaging when it’s time to install them.
