SPI licenses out the Q-Bic® packaging concept to brand owners, retailers, distributors etc. providing customers significant carbon- and cost reductions. As SPI doesn’t manufacture packaging customers can maintain existing strategic relationships with packaging manufacturers. However, SPI can connect customers with our package manufacturing partners that are experienced with the Q-Bic® concept.
The Q-Bic concept was invented by Stian Valentin Knutsen after he was challenged by a Norwegian food chain to design a new space efficient packaging solution. Stian came up with the idea of dividing a cube into six pyramids, and Q-Bic was born. The patent was filed in 2015 and together with co-founder Kolbjørn Mikkelsen, Smart Packaging Industries AS (SPI) was established the following year.
