SPI licenses out the Q-Bic® packaging concept to brand owners, retailers, distributors etc. providing customers with significant carbon- and cost reductions. As SPI is not a packaging manufacturer, customers can maintain existing strategic relationships with their packaging manufacturers. However, SPI can connect customers with our manufacturing partners, that can explicate 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.
