The Turbo Boost for your Success on the Market!


Excellence in packaging – let yourself be inspired! “The most innovative company of the year“ introduces the unique „Innovation Engine 7.0“ – the turbo boost for your success on the market. In seven dimensions we lead your packaging, your POS presentation and your process management into a more successful future!

[1] Materials

Solid board, corrugated board, new kinds of materials: we rely on innovation, especially when it comes to the basic materials of our work. Depending on your needs we provide the most extensive selection of packaging materials and develop new customised materials with innovative functions, visual effects and new dimensions of sustainability.

[2] Form

Form makes the brand. Packaging does not always need to be square and practical. An extensive selection of various forms draw attention to your product at the POS. Our inspired innovations leave an impression, especially in the development and technical implementation of extraordinary forms.

[3] Function

We write Convenience with a capital C. Customers appreciate ease, especially when opening packages. Our variety of award-winning solutions for protection on initial opening, easy dosage and re-closing provide the decisive added benefits for your successful brand.

[4] Finishing

Karl Knauer provides probably the most extensive and innovative finishing portfolio. We appeal to all of the senses with our impressive solutions. Multi-sensorics in a new dimension. Your product is given a unique appearance that is certain to catch the eyes of your customers.

[5] Process

Efficiency is at the forefront of our work with customers. We apply our philosophy of Lean Management to all internal and external processes. SAP-based e-business solutions, Webcenter and SMI optimise daily business, no matter how complex. We see the bigger picture when it comes to packaging – engineering expertise for your products and co-packing solutions.

[6] Values

As a packaging company we take our responsibility for the environment and society very seriously. We insist on sustainability and safety in all areas of our business. Product and trademark protection, food safety, FSC and CO2-certified solutions. A high level of investment ensures sustainable company development, as does the dedication of the Karl Knauer Foundation and our kindergarten “Fliegerkiste”.

[7] Interactivity

Printed electronics will be an integral part of the future of packaging. We were the first to integrate them into packages. We provide access to a wide variety of state-of-the-art multi-sensory technologies. You can rely on our experience when it comes to turning packaging into an interactive marketing tool.
