Customer ideas and KTP solution.

Carsten Kneuper, Logistics Manager at Spelsberg, explains the initial situation.

At Spelsberg we produce plastic parts from the area of electrical installation and housing technology, primarily housings and covers with sensitive surfaces. These must be handled carefully and with the utmost care.

Previously, these parts were packaged using a combination consisting of a metal attachment frame and a Euro pallet (without a lid). However, these frames are not exactly light and the lack of a lid makes it difficult to protect the delicate contents from dust and dirt.

We therefore wanted to switch to packaging that would make our work easier and represent a sustainable, reusable system.


New packaging solution for Günther Spelsberg GmbH + Co. KG – The KTP standard container “SuperQuad SmartFix®” was supplemented by two additional loading flaps on the short sides and received the typical Spelsberg corporate design. Here you can see the reduction in volume in the empties.



“As the new logistics manager at Spelsberg, I already knew KTP from previous employers in the automotive supplier sector. We initially tested systems from different providers – but KTP was particularly positive in terms of handling. All the others were just too complicated and cumbersome.”

Carsten Kneuper, Logistics Manager

The easy handling of the containers compared to the metal attachment frame was rated very positively by the employees. In addition, all containers now have a lid, which better protects our products in the warehouse from environmental influences. Thanks to the three loading flaps, the packed items can be easily reached on all levels. And no container parts can be lost – everything is firmly connected to one another. There is another big advantage when storing empties. Due to the foldability of the KTP containers, significantly less space is required and this also reduces the load on the staging areas.



Handling and dealing with the new containers is significantly easier than with the previous packaging solution.

By adopting our corporate design, everything in the warehouse looks uniform. In addition, we have a price advantage of around 30% compared to the old system!

The collaboration with KTP was very open. Sales made excellent project execution possible.

The uncomplicated, quick exchange and ideas that were then developed and implemented together – that went really well.

“We will definitely implement more projects with KTP in the future.

This container should become the new standard for Spelsberg.”
