About Apache Products, Inc.

Founded in the early 1950’s as a family business, the Acme Skid Division of Apache Products began manufacturing wooden skids for a paper mill. Today, it remains a family owned business servicing customers from Baton Rouge, Louisiana to Freeport, Texas.

Today we employ over 90 people and in 2015 our 5th Pallet Assembly line was added.

We own 9 Trucks / 14 Trailers and annually replace 1-2 of them due to the heavy use they incur. On average we send out 67 loads of pallets per week with some of our largest customers purchasing at least 10-12 weekly loads each.
