OUR HISTORY – PASSION AND KNOWLEDGE
The factory in the village Grünhainichen, situated in the Ore Mountains region with abundant forests and water, dates back 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.
In 1890 the company started to manufacture writing and printing paper and over the course of the years, paper types changed.
From 1972, production in Grünhainichen included fine glassine and substitute parchment paper.
Since 2001, when GRÜNPERGA Papier GmbH was established as a company inside of Golzern Holding, the enterprise has experienced dynamic growth. In 2004, the portfolio was supplemented by crepe paper. Since that time, two paper machines are running around the clock.
The high-quality specialty papers with their multi-faceted applications are in high demand with customers around the globe, who appreciate the reliable and innovative cooperation with GRÜNPERGA.
GRÜNPERGA – we represent paper experience and generations of tradition.
