A Family Business
PRS is part of Faber Halbertsma Group, a family owned company with a history dating back to 1891. Faber Halbertsma Group is one of Europe’s leading poolers and is also a producer of sustainable wooden products.
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 Halbertsma 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?
Nowadays, PRS has a presence throughout Europe, and we are always looking for new expansion opportunities. Wherever you are located, you may rest assured that our representatives are always nearby.
A Sustainable Business
The timber we use for our pallets is FSC/PEFC certified. Plus, our circular pooling system for re-use and recycling is, by design, perfectly positioned to contribute to and facilitate your circularity ambitions.
As a full-service company, our aim is to provide the best possible service, with a local touch. Wherever you are in Europe, our collection service agents and region managers are always nearby. Need to have your pallets collected? We are just one phone call away.
