Collapsible folding containers offer cost and space savings when empty and are ideal for companies moving items from one site to another. With ranges from the Euro sized folding containers to the bulk IBC liquid containers, we have a product that can save on stored space and meet your industrial requirements for many years of use.

Collapsible Folding Plastic Containers

Where to store containers once they have been emptied – for example between two production or transport cycles, or on empty transport?

Folding boxes are available for those who do not want their empty containers to take up the same volume in storage or on the truck as they do when they are full. They can be collapsed to a fraction of their volume. When unfolded, they are on a par with the rigid containers in terms of stability and load capacity.

Functional detailed solutions, such as the red handle to quickly and easily unlock the folding mechanism, ensure maximised suitability for everyday use, high-quality workmanship and a long industrial service life

The collapsible and foldable containers can be used in a variety of applications. They are space-saving, extremely cost effective and compatible with other re-usable packaging systems.

Foldable KLT series complies with the VDA-4500 standard

Automation-compatible small load carriers for the automotive industry carried one step further: If storage areas and loading bay capacity for empty containers currently not required become a cost factor, the foldable KLT series can generate effective savings. The foldable small load carriers combine the benefits of the KLT series with the spatial economy of folding boxes.

The collapsible large load carriers from the GLT series consist of hygienic and insulated containers that are safe for use with food.

These containers feature smooth outside and inside walls and can therefore be cleaned easily and completely. 

The throughout double-walled side walls ensure an effective isolation of the contents. The lids of the GLTs can be locked and sealed making unauthorized opening impossible.

  • ideal for transporting and storing food
  • very hygienic because of easy cleaning
  • isolated against heat and cold by double walls
  • space-saving when empty
  • cost advantages in re-transports due to volume reduction
  • also stackable with lids
  • highest possible security to prevent unauthorized opening


Closing Systems for Big Boxes

Secure valuable or sensitive goods reliably from unauthorized persons! 

With the locking-systems your foldable big boxes are on the safe side, already when being delivered, as the locking-system is assembled at the factory.

Please note:

  • All solutions, except of the pad lock with eyebolt SC, can only be mounted on side-walls without flaps.
  • Hinges are only mounted on the long sides of the boxes
  • If a container is equipped with hinges, the padlocks should only be fixed opposite the hinges

Folding IBC Containers

Do you  have to transport fluids or substances in paste form, and are looking for an efficient solution for this?

The IBC containers ("Intermediate Bulk Containers") combine the robust quality of the large load carriers and the functional reusable handling of collapsible containers with the hygiene and cost efficiency of disposable plastic containers that are safe for use with food (also aseptic on request): 

Your goods are safely packed in so-called liner bags and securely enclosed in a stable container.

After use and emptying, the liner bag is simply removed, the collapsed container transported back and loaded once again with a clean liner.

Loadhog Folding Plastic Container

Currently used by retailers to improve picking efficiency in the warehouse and shelf replenishment in store, the new Loadhog Collapsible Container has been designed to confront current issues with comparing totes in the marketplace. Our product design team and testing engineers moulded this product with the objective to maximise ergonomic handling and high impact resistance. Not only can the Collapsible Container withstand the harsh environments of a factory or warehouse but it can be erected and then collapsed once again within 11 seconds using only one hand if necessary. The ‘vertical bump-fit walls’ make the container especially nice to handle ensuring that each side remains vertical without having to hold it up. The additional features such as the 50/50 divider and Integrated Lid are optional and removed and re-attached with ease.

The return efficiencies are massive with this container type in particular, boasting a 5:1 stacking ratio. Consequently 500 full Collapsible Containers will fill a 40ft container, whereas when empty, collapsed and stacked, 2,500 can be transported.
