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.
This range of trays is a less expensive alternative to the stable QuickPot™ trays. Despite being made out of thinner material a 20 mm. rim around the edge of the tray makes it easy to handle.
HerkuPak™ trays are suitable for automation.
