What Did We Do Today? Built A 70 Foot Long Crate

By Jeff Park, President

In 40 years of business, we’ve built some big crates at American Crating Company but this might be one of the largest.  Recently, a client needed to ship a massive furnace.

Too large to transport to our warehouse, our crew went on-site along with 1.5 loads of wood.  For comparison, that’s enough wood to build a 1500 square foot, two bedroom house.  The top of the crate alone required 1 full bundle of 1/2” plywood.

Over 48 hours our crew constructed a finished crate measuring 70 feet long by 16 feet wide by 12 feet tall.  Including the furnace, the crate and cargo was estimated to weigh over 100,000 pounds.  That’s a big crate!

You may never need a crate this large for your products but at American Crating Company, we can design and build the appropriate packaging for any size shipment.

If we can assist you with a project or if you’d like to find out more about American Crating Company, give me a call or send me an email: jpark@americancrating.net.
