Chic design meets uniqueness: Our classy parcel boxes and fancy pet mailboxes


As is so often the case, there is a story behind every great product. This is also the case with ours.

Our father and senior director of Kniggendorf, Wilfried Otto, shares our passion for metal. But it is more likely that we have inherited this passion from him. Because he too is a tireless idea generator and implementer. In 2006, he came up with the idea of placing a bright pink pig in his front yard. He tinkered with the idea and its implementation with our designer at the time. And now, since the day of its completion, the same pig has been standing in the front yard of our parents' house, attracting the attention of young and old passers-by. But of course, not just any pig, but the forerunner of our unique standing mailboxes.

Pandemic meets inventiveness:

The idea for the unique parcel boxes was taken up again

With our now 30 employees, we were able to acquire a large pool of different products from that day until the pandemic. Among other things, we produce stamped parts for vehicle construction and safe deposit boxes for banks and security companies. In 2020, we also experienced a drop in orders, as some customers - such as inns, restaurants, and car dealerships - dropped away. And so, we also suffered a drop in sales. However, to spare ourselves and our employees from the short-time work, we had the idea to take up the idea of our senior boss again. After all, it was not uncommon for the pig in the front yard to cause children's eyes to light up and to meet with great interest among the larger passers-by. So, we developed the first prototype from the drawing of the models to the manufacturing of the samples, to the production: the second pig mailbox was born after half a year! Shortly after, we were joined by three more unusual designs: a frog, a rabbit, and a sheep. They are now all available in our online store and, in addition to our noble parcel boxes, are mainly aimed at private customers.

Uniqueness meets sustainability:

Our animal mailboxes are lovingly handcrafted

The production of our noble animal mailboxes is unique in Germany to date. Therefore, they are truly unique pieces, each of which is handcrafted, with attention to detail and made to order. Meanwhile, four of our employees are involved in the production of our animal mailboxes and with fun and enthusiasm in the matter. Because the production provides variety in the company. We are very proud that the animal mailboxes are exclusively available in Germany. We are also proud of the fact that we use the energy supplied by our solar plant for production: We live sustainability, and it is one of our most important corporate values.

Secure parcel delivery meets high-quality appearance:

Our parcel boxes withstand any weather

Our pigs, sheep, frogs, and rabbits swallow any format: From small vacation cards, to magazines, to items in A4 format. Another plus is our powder coating, which ensures weather resistance, optimum protection, and a high-quality look. Whether rain, snow, or sun: your mail items are always optimally protected. And the reliable and high-quality lock including two keys and the 0.8 mm stainless steel also do their best for safe storage.

But not only our animal storage systems ensure a protected storage of your mail deliveries, but also our parcel boxes. This means that parcels left in your front garden by parcel services no longer stand a chance. The chic design also makes your front garden a highlight. But also, our parcel boxes have more to offer than a great appearance: They are hot-dip galvanized, also powder-coated and thus robust, stable, and rust-free in any weather. Your parcel deliveries - whether large or small - will be absolutely safe, reliable and theft-proof.

You will be able to literally feel the quality: Because quality is also one of our company values and is our top priority. Quality is in our DNA!
