A short history of our company
The Faber Halbertsma story began in 1891, when the Halbertsma family took up a new trade and started producing wooden barrels for butter. While the Halbertsma company flourished and gradually moved towards the production of pallets, the Faber family founded a similar business in Assen in 1935.
When in 1969 the Faber company was hit by an enormous fire, the company decided to shift its production focus to pallets as well. A great idea, as it turned out. In 1992, the two companies merged to form the Faber Halbertsma Group. Over the years, we have grown into today’s family of companies, providing a portfolio of sustainable pallet and pooling services and products.

Corporate Social Responsibility
We do business in a respectful way, respect for the environment, respect for our customers and respect for all those co-workers who add to our success, day in and day out. To us, corporate social responsibility is not just another box to tick. It is part of our DNA.
