Legacy Wood Products and Environmental Stewardship

A Legacy Green Initiative

Legacy manufactures tens of thousands of crates each year. We employ some of the top designers and craftsmen in the crating industry. We run multiple shifts and have a wealth of experience which allows us to provide crates that range from highly specialized custom crates to high volume production crates.

As one of the top producers of custom crating products. Legacy consumes a significant amount of wood in the production of these crates. However, we only use lumber harvested from tree farms, and no indigenous trees are cut down to make the lumber we use. All of our wood is also 100% compliant with the International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures No. 15 (ISPM 15) to prevent the international transport and spread of disease and insects that could negatively affect plants or ecosystems.

Along with carefully sourcing and inspecting our wood we also make wood waste reduction a priority in our design program. This reduces the amount of wood consumed and allows us to be even more competitive in our pricing. 100% of the wood that we do not use in the production of crates is sent to a recycler and used in the manufacture of other wood based products.

Legacy strongly believes we have a responsibility to our customers, our communities and our planet to take steps that help ensure a cleaner and brighter tomorrow, and we are committed to the responsible use of our natural resources.
