It is our passion to produce chocolate moulds, tray packaging and plastic components in Germany.

Innovative, reliable and absolutely customer-focused – we practice what we preach.

Passion drives us to the creation of solutions that you can rely on. Our team is proud to accompany you the whole way – not only develop successful products for you. Passion for our job is not only a flowery phrase for us but a promise that which you can measure us by. We will offer you a one-of-a-kind service that is efficient, reliable and on schedule, combining all the advantages of our solutions.

This is what we stand for – for more than 60 years and in the future:

  • Development of individual products for chocolate moulds
  • Cost-efficient packaging in large volumes
  • Absolute reliability and supply dependability 

Tireless shaping and forming – for more than 60 years

In 1948 Dr. Günther Kaupert began manufacturing the first chocolate moulds from metal. He was inspired when company founder Alfred Bodderas from Lüdenscheid told him about an unpaid tooling for a chocolate manufacturer. The Erndtebrück Operation had been founded during the last war for fear of the Allied bombardments, in order to protect machines and production. In 1958, Erndtebrück became an independent operation.

Growing Success for Kaupert

In June 1955, Dr. Günther Kaupert began with the manufacture of pre-embossed packaging according to his own patents. Soon after, a new factory was erected in Marburg. It was the year 1958. Prior, there had already been licensed productions in Vienna (Austria) Bristol (UK) and Harleysville, PA (USA). In 1961, the factory was expanded with a second production hall. 1986 saw the start of the in-house manufacture of plastic film and in 1993 the steady growth lead to the foundation of the dedicated factory for plastic technology in Schameder.

Today, Kaupert produces chocolate moulds, thermoformed packaging and additional products from plastics in 3 factories. Rolf Sturm-Kaupert, son-in-law of Dr. Günther Kaupert, has been leading the company since 1978.

Practising responsibility

A responsible use of resources and protection of the environment are inherent to Kaupert's Environmental Policy. In order for following generations to find a job AND an intact environment, all our team members are being bound into our environmentally friendly projects. Together with our customers and suppliers alike, we are constantly optimising our logistics.

Working with energy efficiency on our mind

With the help of process optimisation, our energy consumption is constantly being reduced in all our 3 factory sites - in 2011 alone, we managed to reduce the consumption of the Injection-Moulding which is one of our highest energy consumers by more than 20%. Bought-in raw materials are being handled and processed efficiently; the inevitable production waste is returned back into the raw material cycle with help of recycling partners. The Schameder site has been equipped with a modern heat recovery facility that will now cover 80% of the heating requirements. In 2010, we have pledged and confirmed in the cadastral land register that some 3,000m² of our company grounds will not be built upon since a renaturing procedure prior had brought about a natural river meadow landscape with a rare fauna and flora.

Our Team is the key to our Success.

For more than 60 years our job is our passion. Many members of our team have therefore already been with us for 24, 40 or even 50 years. It is not enough for us just to provide premium products and processes - we want to be your long-term partner! With this in mind, development and service are siginificant features, because without proficient advice and follow-up from idea to ready product, a customer will feel left alone. Our top service is only possible, however, because our team of colleagues will do their job with a passion and will not slow down until all your requests are met.

Our Team Members - your Partners

In order for you to rely on our expertise at all times, our team members enjoy regular trainings in their respective domaines and can attend qualification programmes. This is our understanding of turning our employees into your partners: personal, competent and easily approachable.
