Although Pallet Consultants has achieved a lot in the 20+ years we’ve been helping customers and setting service standards in the pallet industry, the company came from a small beginning.
Our founder, Gus Gutierrez, worked as a merchandiser for Keebler Foods as one of his first jobs. From there he climbed the ranks and switched industries through an eye for opportunity, but mostly a dedication to hard work and going above and beyond. Eventually he became a sales representative at Bromley Suncoast Pallets. He had an opportunity to become a business owner when Bromley was selling the location he worked at. Seeing a burning need in the industry for real customer service, Gus purchased the assets and started out with 0 team members.

While building the company from the ground up, he also molded the culture he envisioned for all of his team members. As new locations were added and services grew, so did the focus on culture and Gus’ vision of how to spread his own ethics.Our culture, at its base, is the customer needs to be appreciated and treated with specialty. Hard work and a hands-on work ethic are highly valued, along with a can-do attitude and a willingness for team members to help around with duties that aren’t necessarily theirs. Expectations are high, but so is our loyalty and respect toward team members. This ingratiates us to each other, and mutual respect makes a happier and more productive work environment.
