Fibre based Packaging: Know-How, Research, Pilot Plant & Services

Paper can do more: Packaging made of paper makes a decisive contribution to the development of a CO2-neutral bioeconomy. Frequently the same applies to the known from plastic packagingbarrier properties, resistance to liquids, transparency, formability and processability through new technological developments and the targeted use of materials and and processes.

We are happy to work together with you on the holistic and individual development of your packaging product. The combination of our many years of expertise, our current research activity, our technical equipment infrastructure and our strong partner network enables the realisation of even the most unusual and technologically demanding ideas fibre based packaging development.

We consult you in detail!
