FIRST – for progress, people and the environment

As makers and creators of packaging innovations, we have risen to become industry leaders in productivity and technology - and continue to pursue our goal of being one of the largest packaging manufacturers in Europe. Our path only takes us forward. Our philosophy is summed up by the acronym FIRST. Each letter represents one of the five principles which are central to our work.

Future vision and progress

We are one of the largest packaging manufacturers in Europe – with sales markets from Scandinavia to Italy and from the UK to eastern Europe. Through continuous, sustainable and organic growth, we create and secure jobs all over Europe. Our aim is to expand our presence to international market leadership.

Innovation & technology

We continually invest in the development of forward-looking technologies. We offer our customers up-to-date solutions that meet their individual needs. Our manufacture and delivery service is fast and flexible – right across Europe.

Respect & responsibility

We respect both people and the environment. We produce our packaging from renewable raw materials – with a beneficial carbon footprint. Whenever we make an investment decision, we seek to systematically reduce our energy needs. And since we take responsibility for both the environment and society as a company, we support not-for-profit projects in the region.

Strength & expertise

We draw on the expertise, performance and economic potential of a total of 29 European sites with over 4000 employees. For us, the functionality and reliability of our products and services are a top priority. Which is why we guarantee adherence to the highest quality standards.

Tradition & values

As a family business in its third generation, tradition and values mean a lot to us. Our philosophy is "Packaging made by people, for people". Despite our international growth, we have remained a family company, with flat organisational structures, plenty of team spirit and top-class expertise. We have always believed in the value of a trust-based relationship with our employees, customers and suppliers. Our many long-term partnerships are evidence of our efforts in this area.

A box full of memories
Our history

We live by our values – 
and have done for over 70 years

As we have developed from a local trading enterprise to a packaging specialist with sites across Europe, our employees, customers and suppliers have come to value our solidarity and reliability - and have remained loyal partners over many years. Tradition and real values have been important to us from the beginning and still form the foundation of our family-run company today.
