About the Owner: Greg Wine
Greg Wine started in the pallet business in 1981 at JR Retrofit where he learned how to wire, weld, do controls and install pallet machines. From there he went to work for Campbell Atlantic in 1983 as salesman and then moved onto become a sales manager for Viking Engineering in 1985. Finally in 1995, after a lot of encouragement from several customers he decided to go out on his own and formed G. Wine Sales, selling Tipton Ironworks scragg mills and West Plains Resaw equipment. Not long after that and again with lots of customer encouragement he decided to branch out into the used equipment business.
A few years later he came up with the idea for the M2L stacker and reached out to Gary Sill at Automated Industrial Technologies. They put their heads together and before long the revolutionary M2L stacker was born! The business continued to grow as it picked up other lines of equipment including Storti nailing machines and sawmill equipment and starting consulting with plant layouts and even selling businesses.
Since then Greg had taken on such a wide variety of industry solutions he decided to change his name from G. Wine Sales to Pallet Machinery Group. This name was a better fit as it incorporated his motto of being “Your One Stop Pallet Resource.” Being able to provide customers with solutions to all of their pallet and sawmill needs under one roof has allowed PMG to continue to grow and be successful.
