MADE IN GERMANY QUALITY SINCE 1833
Six generations of innovation
Building our future on tradition.
For a medium-sized family company, its history also shapes its future because knowing where you have come from makes it easier to know where you want to go. Our long history gives us perspective on the one hand, and motivation to further develop, improve, and never stand still on the other.
What began in 1833 with the founding of a factory for upholstery nails, which then lead in 1921 to the establishment of a packaging plant to satisfy the company’s internal demands, is now in its sixth generation of family ownership – with a desire that many more generations might follow.
We are one of the most state-of-art companies in the printing and packaging industry, and a company that unites tradition and progress. With our team of specialists in a wide variety of areas, we are ready for the future and welcome new challenges.
