History, Schumacher Packaging –
the years 1948 - 1970

Foundation of the company in Ebersdorf b. Coburg

Kurt H. Schumacher and his wife Hildegard found a wholesale business for the local toy, upholstery and small furniture industries in Ebersdorf bei Coburg in Bavaria.

New generation in the family business

His son, Wulf Schumacher, takes over the company management and by the mid 60s increases the turnover share of corrugated board packaging to almost 90%.

Focus on corrugated board

Through tireless work and an offensive strategy, Wulf Schumacher expands the corrugated board packaging department and turns it into a key product.

Commissioning of the first corrugator machine

The first corrugator machine is put into operation at the Ebersdorf plant. And so, the former trading company develops into a modern production location for corrugated board packaging.
