No Stopping From The First Second

Founded in 2010, TECSAFE has become a leading manufacturer of foam inserts for storage, protection, transport and packaging applications.

Father and son Knut and Maximilian Hermes started out ten years ago with a small-scale operation producing foam inserts. We now have two production sites and a customer base that includes over 100 manufacturers, retailers and associations. The steadily growing demand from our customers is currently being handled by a workforce of over 40. Germany’s FOCUS magazine has already awarded us the accolade of “Growth Champion” no fewer than three times.

Our success is no accident. From the very outset, our family company has focused on technical innovation and the highest quality standards. This benefits our customers in the form of extremely fast delivery times, industry-leading online configuration options and superior product quality. Throughout our journey, we have maintained our passion for bespoke solutions and still enjoy being able to support our customers with tailored storage and packaging ideas.

Our Philosophy: Maximum Quality and Rapid Realisation

About Tecsafe

TECSAFE Means Quality & Innovation

Our success is no accident. From the very outset, TECSAFE focuses on 3 convictions:

Premium Inside And Outside

That is why TECSAFE deliberately chooses to use materials of the highest quality. Over the years, we have realised that, despite the associated costs, quality really does pay for itself at the end of the day. Our products combine an above-average service life with excellent robustness in everyday use. Another feature of the raw material is the way it is manufactured.

Fully Digital

Our production operations are now almost fully digitalised, which works to the benefit of our customers. For example, our impressively short production times enable us to meet all the latest inventory reduction and just-in-time delivery requirements.
Our advanced laser technology opens up opportunities for organisational elements and personalisation. Details such as workstation IDs, article numbers and serial numbers can be laser-etched anywhere on the surface of the inserts in various font styles and sizes. Logos and pictograms are also easy to add.

Ecologically Aware

We differentiate between chemically and physically foamed plastics.
The material we use most is foamed using a vacuum process, which makes it the most environmentally friendly option of its kind. PE and POM are ideal for environments where work needs to comply with hygiene standards, such as the food industry. We process these materials, too.
