In December 2011 we had the pleasure of working with Rainer and Margit Bressmer of TecBox, and their staff, on some videos and photos for their website.  TexBox is a company based in Rhodes Corner, Lunenburg County that designs and makes wooden and cardboard shipping crates for export.

Since buying TecBox in 2005, Rainer and Margit have transformed the company into the successful business that it is today.  They recently added strong cardboard packaging to their business, in addition to the wooden crates that they already made.  They were rewarded for their efforts late last year when they were presented with the 2011 Lunenburg-Queens Business Excellence Award for Export Achievement.

What struck us from the first time we visited TecBox was just how hands-on everything is – each crate, wood or cardboard really is completely hand made, and that’s why they are able to make anything upwards from a single box – no large quantities necessary.

The Bressmers emigrated from Germany some years ago.  As immigrants ourselves they are a real inspiration to us and we hope to be able to follow in their successful footsteps.

The first video is an overview of the company. The second and third are shorter pieces focussing on the certification process for wooden export crates, and on the products that TecBox makes.
