We have specialised in the manufacturing of cases, caskets and boxes for more than 60 years. We produce both cost-effective purpose-made packaging as well as exclusive wooden cases, wooden caskets and wooden boxes to show your products in their best light. We manufacture our products specific to customer requirements exclusively at our site in Rietheim-Weilheim. Our client base ranges from companies specialising in measurement, tool, electrical and medical technology, and manufacturers and retailers of luxury foods and tobacco right through to businesses in the ceramics and building materials industry.

Since the company was founded back in 1880 it has grown from a workshop into a modern family-run company where industrial manufacturing processes and craftsmanship unite for the utmost efficiency. Extensive consulting expertise, streamlined processes and a high degree of vertical integration form the basis for the distinctive identity of our products. In production, qualified craftspeople ensure the sustainability of the materials being processed and that only the highest quality wooden packaging leaves the production site in Rietheim-Weilheim.
