Jimmy Wilson, Founder and President
Since 1994, Jimmy Wilson has built his wooden pallet business on a reputation of quality craftsmanship and excellent customer service. “All my clients know me and I know them,” he said. “They know that, whenever they need to, they can call on me.” Wilson’s career in the wooden pallet industry began in 1989 in his hometown of Cartersville, Georgia. Four years later, he became a partner in a Pensacola, Florida pallet business that eventually became Bay Wood Products Inc. in Robertsdale, Alabama.
The company’s annual sales and production have surged in recent years. Now, Bay Wood Products reports more than $20 million in annual sales and employs more than 120 men and women. “There are a lot of possibilities for the future,” Wilson said. “I still get excited about what we do.”
Wilson was recently elected to serve a second three-year term on the Board of Directors for the National Wooden Pallet & Container Association. He also serves on the Board of Trustees for The Pallet Foundation and locally, on the Board of Advisors for BB&T Bank in Mobile, AL.
Outside of work, he enjoys playing golf and spending time with his wife, Bridget, and their son, Walker, who is an Auburn University graduate. In 2012, Walker joined Bay Wood Products as a softwood lumber buyer and broker. Wilson said he hopes to one day see his son leading the family-owned business.
