HQ Pack is a producer of high-end flight cases and pallets used for the global transportation of expensive machine parts. These sophisticated cases are developed and produced internally and - for specialized customers - may contain lifting and hydraulic installations to safeguard the shipped products. 

After usage, the flight cases are returned to HQ Pack for an extensive inspection, repair, and/or cleaning before being re-used. When cases are too damaged for reuse, they are recycled to produce new cases. Besides recycling, HQ Pack is also invested in solar power, having recently installed many solar panels on the roof of their building in Eindhoven.
