ABOUT THE REBRAND
Recently, Frank rebranded the business to better reflect CW’s custom crating and pallet services. As part of the rebrand, the name was changed from CW Products (CWP) to CW Crates & Pallets. This rebrand is the first step in an expansion that will include reaching an online market with a selection of pre-made, standard size pallets and crates. CW’s continued growth will also encompass a deeper reach into the local market with product and industry education and consultations that put customers’ best interest above getting the sale.

Jason is key in coordinating deliveries with his impeccable attention to detail. He is meticulous in his approach to special projects and prides himself on the upkeep of the trucks. He also specializes in onsite crating work including shrink wrapping, vacuum sealing, and packing. Jason is married with three kids and loves coaching his kids sports teams, hunting and fishing.
Jon has a lifetime of mechanical experience, and as a result, has stepped up to tackle issues with equipment as they arise. In his primary role at CW, he specializes in building crates where he excels as an independent and efficient worker. John’s interests outside of work are aligned with his talents at work—as a child he'd take things apart just to put them back together again.
