Inca Engineered Molded Wood Pallets and Core Plugs have been recertified in the Cradle to Cradle Certified Products Program. Litco’s Exporter and Retailer pallet and core plug line is the first of its kind to be inducted into the program. The line was awarded recertification at the BRONZE level overall while also achieving GOLD in the category of material utilization.


To improve the overall environmental impact of its engineered molded wood products, Litco worked closely with MBDC, the creators and foremost assessors of the Cradle to Cradle Certified Program, to identify areas of strength and improvement across all five Cradle to Cradle attributes: material health, material re-utilization (often referred to as circular economy), renewable energy, water stewardship and social fairness. 


Core Protection Plugs are designed specifically for manufacturers and converters of paper, plastic film, and metallic foils. The Inca core plug’s strength advantage comes from the unique process of combining hard and softwood fiber and resin with high heat and pressure. The end result is a dimensionally stable plug with a tight fit that provides the ultimate in crush resistance.


Molded wood products sold by Litco re-purpose damaged logs, wood waste, and other wood by-products in the manufacturing process. Pallets and core plugs are designed from the start to be reused multiple times and recycled.
