OUR HISTORY, PASSION AND KNOWLEDGE
The factory in the village Grünhainichen, situated in the Ore Mountains region with abundant forests and water, dates to the year 1880, when the company Siegel & Haase was established. A few years earlier, the Saxon machinist and inventor Friedrich Gottlob Keller had developed the groundwood pulp process, which is commonly used until these days. Wood replaced the rags used back then as a raw material and made mass production of paper possible in the first place.
the company started with writing and printing papers, but the types of paper changed over time.
From 1972, fine glassine and substitute parchment paper were produced
Since 2001 GRÜNPERGA Papier GmbH was established as a company of Golzern Holding, it has developed dynamically. In 2004, the portfolio was expanded to crepe papers. Since that two paper machines run continuously 24h a day.
The high-quality speciality papers with their versatile applications are requested around the globe - our customers appreciate the reliable and innovative cooperation with GRÜNPERGA.
GRÜNPERGA - That's paper - experience and generations of tradition.
Team and Technology
Paper production is still a craft, albeit in high-tech mode since a long time. It requires a great deal of expertise because paper is a very sensitive natural product. In all, it takes a three-year apprenticeship to become a paper technologist.
And once you have grown into the task, the job really gets a hold on you. The GRÜNPERGA team offers a wealth of experience and tradition because the “paper manufacturer” genes are often passed on over generations.
More than 100 employees manufacture about 15,000 tons of paper each year.
The equipment is kept up-to-date, and we use the latest technologies and materials from the fields of mechanical engineering and control technology.
The machines can be quickly retooled for varying paper characteristics.
