HerkuPlast was founded in 1972 by Dr. Juergen Kubern who remains the CEO of the company to this day.  Dr. Kubern along with a group of growers saw a need for trays that could be used over and over. Better handling and the possibility to push out plants with a push out plate led to the development of QuickPot™. These trays have a lifetime of approximately 10 years. Growers that ship their product to customers and don't wath to use the QuickPot™ long life trays Choose to use the HerkuPak™ trays. This HerkuPak™ line consists of light trays for 1 - 3 times use. The trays are among the best quality light trays in the market. The total tray program consists of multiple different propagation trays and is still growing. The company has their own technical department that is responsible for research and development. From an idea to a tray delivered on your doorstep, it's taken care of by HerkuPlast and Hort Tech Systems. 



  • All QuickPotTM trays are made with large bottom holes to allow easy plant removal with the use of a push-out plate.
  • Built-in destacking lugs ensure easy separation of trays by hand or by machine.
  • Most trays have a corresponding Plug Release Plate that can be purchased.
  • Multiple tray configurations to choose from.
  • QuickPotTM trays are made of heavy-duty reusable polystyrene and used with care will last up to 10 years, making overall cost per plant very low.
  • Thanks to the high quality of material used, QuickPotTM trays have a high residual value for recycling.
  • The smooth surface enables easy cleaning and disinfecting, both chemically and by hot water treatment (up to 75 C / 160 F).
  • These large holes and the protrusions in the cell base ensure excellent drainage and oxygen supply.
