Incorporated in 2006 with a seed investment in Xanita,"Cardboard Innovations" is a business division of Nicholls Technologies, a Queensland-registered company which develops and leverages a complementary suite of intellectual property covering cellulose fibreboard products. 


We envisage a world where our products replace millions of pallets, funeral caskets and visual displays, all most commonly made from plastic and engineered wood.

Xanita was founded in Cape Town in 2006 by angel and management investors. Today it remains privately-held, manufacturing and exporting the world's highest-quality composite paperwood that replaces rigid plastic sheeting and engineered wood.

Xanita boards are exported to 26 countries and converted by display printers, helping brand owners enter the circular economy.


DaisyBox™ corrugated fibreboard funeral caskets allow funeral arrangers to meet the rapidly growing market demand for lower-cost, environmentally-friendly
burial and cremation services.

Australian-patented with patent applications pending for North America and the EU, we're working with big box makers to offer distributed manufacturing of DaisyBox caskets on three continents.


LIFDEK Corporation offers the most cost efficient corrugated fibreboard pallet system in the world of lightweight logistics.

Patented designs are licensed to box makers the world over, who supply businesses looking for alternatives to heavy-weight wood and plastic pallets.


BagLift is a patent-pending structural design that allows for more efficient and environmentally-friendly transport of flexible intermediate bulk containers, also called "FIBC" bags. Over 500 million bags are shipped around the world each year, many on timber pallets.
