How the company achieved success with upholstery material

Karopack GmbH was founded in mid-1995 as Kreiter Naturverpackung GmbH with the corporate purpose of producing and selling upholstered cushions for shipping.
For this purpose, our own production facility was developed and built, which has been continuously developed since then. After the first production facility at the Kirchardt site was fully utilized at the beginning of 1999, a second production facility was set up in April 1999. This system is in a workshop for disabled people. The upholstery cushions are manufactured, delivered and also invoiced by them, so that the customer can offset a considerable part of the invoice amount against his severely handicapped compensation tax. With continuous growth and increasing demand, the karopack upholstery cushions are now manufactured at 11 locations in Germany. You can find the respective locations here.
In addition, production plants for the manufacture of karopack upholstery cushions have been built since 2000 and sold to end customers, for whom the investment quickly pays for itself due to the high demand. The cardboard recycling plants (KVA) are in increasing demand with rising raw material costs. Since 2003 karolit vermiculite pillows have also been manufactured as a dust-free alternative be used for transport protection for dangerous goods. In 2020 Kreiter GmbH was renamed karolit GmbH and the karopack activities were bundled in the newly founded karopack GmbH.
