follow world of Joachim Heckler is made of cardboard. He sits at a table made of solid corrugated cardboard and pulls out a carton after the other. Now the classic comes. 160 mm long and 130 mm wide. A beige cardboard box would trigger in most people, no big emotions, with Heckler but this is different. The managing Director says: "We love and we hate the cardboard at the same time."

Joachim Heckler, 52 years old, loves this model, because everything fits. Pocket books, mobile phones, shampoo bottles, whatever you sent, the dimensions of the cartons are usually sufficient. But Joachim Heckler hates this model, for the same reason, because as good as everything fits. His company called 3V namely has long since developed new packaging that could be used to save Material, especially the plastic in the packages. In the East of Munich Heckler and his hundreds of employees working on the packaging of the future - and in the coming years, which are so in demand could be never.

On the one hand, always be prepared for even more packaging, and also because so many people order on the Internet. Right now, in the weeks and days before Christmas, in the house a lot of yellow pieces of paper corridors of glue, missed packages. On the other hand, more and more people are unnecessary packaging sorry, the big cartons will be supplied, for example, in which then only a Cup. In no other country in the European Union, the people accumulate so much packaging waste, as in Germany, more than 18 million tons of it were last updated within a year. The power for each and every one of us, more than 220 kilograms. The packaging can be useful, they do not, or at least fit in their dimensions - and at this point, Joachim Heckler comes with its cardboard to protect the Goods, but sometimes it is needed to the game.

The company 3V has been around since the eighties, at that time a man by the name of Hans Reinhart catalogs began to send on behalf of clients and soon, its own packaging. The Name of the company dates back to this time, the three V's stand for packaging, packing, and Shipping. The company is still Hans Reinhart, even if the shops by now Joachim Heckler and his colleague Achim Riedel. But the idea is still the same. You want to develop packaging that adapt as well as possible to the products - and you can exploit thanks to the cardboard back.

Achim Riedel is now available in the factory. He is the other Director of the company, takes care of the technology. A great machine that rattles and a shipping bag to the other, you fold automatically. It smells of wood. Riedel says: "This is the scent of the cardboard."

more and more packages are produced

The cardboard comes in large sheets in its factory, then it is printed and die-cut, folded and glued. At the end of the cartons are stacked on pallets, again pressed and then the load force loaded carts. Seven Trucks left the factory in a day. 70 million packaging, the company produces within a year. In the past five years, this figure has doubled.

Achim Riedel and his colleagues not much else to do other than a couple of decades, always new packaging, but packaging is made of cardboard. But now, the discussion of the plastic is for the benefit of you, the plastic waste. The use says to you, in any case, Riedel, and results in a high room full pressed bales. These are the remnants of the boxes, of Heimstetten, you come back directly in a corrugated paper factory, and processed into new cardboard, which will eventually be re-delivers Achim Riedel.
