Our history

For 25 years LPR - La Palette Rouge has been serving companies looking to optimise their supply chain. Let's look back on two decades of caring for our customers.

  • 1992

    Company founded in Toulouse (FR)

    Our story begins in the south west of France almost 30 years ago. Initially, LPR focused on several industrial sectors: chemicals, pharmaceuticals, components, etc.

  • 1997

    The beginning of a great adventure

    Nestle Waters entrusted us with the management of its entire supply chain. This was a great mark of confidence on the part of the Swiss giant, and a relationship which we have strengthened over the years. For LPR, this was an opportunity to learn how to meet the highest standards demanded by large businesses.

  • 1998

    Creation of the European network

    LPR - La Palette Rouge began to extend its network to other European countries: its first subsidiary was established in the Netherlands, followed closely by Spain in 1999 and Portugal in 2000. This was the beginning of the European adventure that enables us to follow our customers all over Europe today!

  • 2004

    The adventure continued across the Channel

    2004 was a very important year for LPR: it was the year in which we exceeded €100 million in turnover. As evidence of our growing business development, we also signed a major contract with Kimberley Clark in the UK. This date also marks the beginning of LPR's presence in new countries: Germany, Italy...

  • 2010

    A rewarding commitment to the future

    in 2010, LPR was the first pallet pooling business to obtain PEFC certification, which rewards companies committed to sustainable forest management. This achievement is a great source of pride at LPR, it proves to our customer that by choosing us they are also choosing to take part in the creation of the responsible supply chain of tomorrow. 

  • 2011

    LPR became a division of Euro Pool Group

    We are acquired by Euro Pool Group, the leader in reusable packaging in Europe. This acquisition enabled LPR to expand its presence on the continent, increase its teams, and benefit from greater resources to innovate and develop new solutions.

  • 2015

    LPR received its first ECOVADIS medal

    EVOVADIS awarded the Gold Advanced medal to LPR for the quality of its CSR management system and its commitment to reducing the environmental impact to its entire supply chain.

  • 2019

    Deployment in Central and Eastern Europa (CEE)

    After four years of success in Poland, LPR demonstrated its commitment to continuing to develop in Eastern Europa, enabling us to go further to be near to our customers.
