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.

We carry impact

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.

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.

Always near

Based in The Netherlands, Faber Group has operations throughout most of Europe. On top of that, we are constantly looking for opportunities to expand our business into new regions. Our aim is to always have a local presence. In that way, we can guarantee our ability to quickly deal with any logistical challenge, wherever our customers may be.
