The Coral Springs, FL-based company said it plans to restructure its pallet manufacturing operations and evaluate whether to keep or dispose of existing plants and its distribution, logistics and information technology functions.

After reorganization, Pallet Management said it hopes to shift its business focus toward reverse distribution logistics services.

VP & CFO Marc Steinberg said performing under the demands of its existing contracts prevented growth and, coupled with current lumber market prices, contributed to the company's need to seek bankruptcy protection.
