About Us

We rely on continuity and independence

We are a medium-sized and independent family business in the 4th generation with our headquarters in Schopfheim in the southern Black Forest. Thanks to the optimal location in terms of transport in the border triangle of France, Switzerland and Germany, we have a “location with short distances” within Europe. Pioneering technology, innovation and decades of experience have made us an important international partner in the field of paper tube production.
