Originally known as ADV PACKAGING or Anton de Villiers Packaging, the company you have come to know as WeCrate was born when Anton decided it was time to retire from business, and we saw a great opportunity in carrying on his legacy.  

We love everything about the business and are passionate about packing,  making sure all of our customers are satisfied with our service, and every job is given 110% no matter how big or small.

We also care about our environment and are proud to partner up with Sawmills that only practice responsible and sustainable forestry.  Making sure we do our part is important to us and that is why we have various initiatives in place to promote the planting of trees, recycling, and conserving energy where possible.  


Our core business is specialising in the manufacture of standard and custom-made wooden boxes/crates/pallets to safely transport your goods for both domestic and international transport.  This also includes the technical and often overlooked job of packing.  Our wooden boxes are also popular for parts storing and internal movements in the larger manufacturing plants, they are made with quality timber to be strong and versatile.  

All of our timer products have the option for fumigation or heat treating along with full certification depending on your ISPM15 needs.  

Here at WECRATE we love a challenge!  No matter how big, small, or challenging your needs might be, we got you covered.  Over 30 years of experience has lead us to perfect packing of equipment and machinery at excellent prices and efficient production time, while making 100% sure your goods are safe and arrive the same way they were packed.
