A story of generations

From the start…

Our story 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.

… to the current day.

Through a highly motivated workforce, excellent customer service and a focus on circularity and re-use of resources, we aim to reduce our CO2 footprint and provide complete peace of mind to our customers. Both with regards to their logistical challenges and their increasingly important sustainability goals.

Sustainability is in our DNA

Sustainability is embedded in the core of our circular load carrier pooling business and in our hearts! 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, it is not just another box to tick and it is no coincidence that our purpose at Faber Group is to carry impact: creating a better world through our circular business model facilitated by continuously improving our sustainable value chain.
