1956

On 1 November 1956, the "Sanpack Gesellschaft Lambsdorff & Co" firm commences business with its own production and trading, as well as with the manufacture of packaging products. The company headquarters and sales organisation are located in the Hamburg-Billbrook district.

iba – International Baking Industry Trade Fair – Munich, 1958: Sanpack participates for the first time as an exhibitor in an international trade show. Sanpack generates major interest on the European market with the launch of cling film under the „Saran“ brand name.

Sanpack trades in packaging machines, e.g. the Spanish Ulma brand. Packaging is produced by the company for fresh foods in supermarkets, such as mesh bags, trays and so-called "T-shirt bags" (plastic bags) for fruit and vegetables. The range of products also includes roasting bags and shrink tubing manufactured in-house.

1990

The Sanpack Lagertechnik storage technology firm relocates together with its parent company to the new Glinde/Reinbek industrial area on the outskirts of Hamburg. The new location has good transport connections via the nearby Hamburg-Berlin autobahn 24.

Sanpack realigns its corporate focus on the packaging, storage and logistics business areas and concentrates on innovative product development, as well as on in-house production and sales.

The Sanpack success story begins with the development of the sanstrap® stretchbands, which are patented in 1994. Today, the sanstrap® stretchbands are used globally to secure goods during storage and logistics operations, with numerous imitators on the market by now.
Further innovations from Sanpack: The sangrip® non-slip strip and the 2link® clasp, which is used in combination with the sanstrap® stretchbands to vertically secure goods and moving parts during transport operations.

Sanpack develops and manufactures innovative products for the securing and protection of goods during transport, as well as for efficient storage technology requirements, especially for in-house transport.

Here at Sanpack, we focus on customer-oriented solutions to problems, not only in our specialised field of intralogistics: From the initial ideas to their global applications.
