At A-1 Pallets, Inc., we are proud to be headquartered in Kent, Washington. Kent has a strong entrepreneurial spirit, from agriculture to heavy manufacturing.  The region has attracted nationally recognized companies as well as nurtured small neighborhood based businesses.  Kent boasts a pro-business attitude and maintains a strong competitive advantage over neighboring communities.  Kent’s newly restructured Economic and Community Development Department has implemented a business-friendly permit process, not only to attract new businesses, but to ensure the continued success of our existing businesses.  The new process is predictable and flexible, allowing permits, licenses, and inspections to be timely and efficient.
