Our purpose, mission and values

At PRS, we are proud of the solid foundation upon which our pallet pooling service is built. Our commitment to excellence and sustainability sets us apart, and our values serve as the guiding principles that drive our every action. We believe in the power of collaboration, simplicity, and continuous improvement, and these values are at the core of our pallet pooling model.

Our history

The story of PRS started in the mid-nineties, when the joint European polymer producers embraced a new concept for a sustainable, circular collection and recycling system. 

Next step was to find a company that could actually manage re-use and shared use on a European level. With over 100 years of experience in quality pallets, Faber Group won the bid. It built a European network of depots, suppliers, carriers and collection service centres. Together, they came up with an industry-wide concept based on standard, re-usable CP-style pallets. They called it the "Pallet Return System" which later became abbreviated to PRS.

The original participants remain customers of PRS to this day. We are proud of this heritage. Our pooling system really was created by the industry, for the industry. As a unique collaborative circular economic model that reduces waste by promoting re-use, it may be more relevant than ever. Because who knew, in 1996, that circularity would become such a crucial factor in the polymer industry of today?
