PLA Appoints Former Ingersoll Rand Exec to General Manager

 

Pallet Logistics of America (PLA), a leading provider of recycled pallets and pallet management services, has appointed Mont Wilkes to General Manager.

Wilkes was previously area director and general manager at Ingersoll Rand since 2006 where he held full P&L responsibility in service, sales and operations for area locations in South Central Area, including Texas and Louisiana.  Wilkes is a graduate of Texas A&M University with a Bachelor in Science in Industrial Distribution.

Wilkes joins a growing logistics and supply chain organization.  Established in 1989, Pallet Logistics of America has established itself as a best in class service provider in the Southwestern United States. In 2017, PLA merged with another premier group, Valley Pallet Incorporated. Founded in 1987 and a reach encompassing the West Coast region, Valley’s shared core values and commitment to excellence made their merger with PLA a natural fit to expand superior service and solutions.

Finally, in 2018, Yancey Pallet, Inc. joined the PLA family. With operations in Washington and a leader in the wood products industry with a like-minded dedication to service, the Yancey team was a perfect addition.  With shared mentalities and over 100 years of shared experience in the wood products industry, the PLA family of companies’ focus on innovative solutions and impeccable service creates a unique opportunity for our customers to benefit from.
