Paper with a long tradition

We have been acquiring expertise in the production of paper since 1827. Since then, we have been continuing to develop our products at our site on the River Wupper. As a family-run company, our focus is on sustainability, environmental awareness, and social responsibility. We are convinced that adhering to these values is the recipe for our success – and we practise them in our day-to-day business! Our ECO PAPER is especially resource-efficient because it is made of 100% recycled fibres. It also stands out on account of a number of other quality aspects:

  • Use of 100% recycled fibres
  • It can be disposed of with household waste paper (no wet strength)
  • Excellent strength and therefore ideal as packaging paper
  • Ideal to print on (flexo and offset printing are both possible)
  • Strong white colour

These qualities make our ECO PAPER ideal for a wide range of uses. Need an example? 

Just an idea...

Avoidance of plastic in favour of recycled paper

This was our approach to this project in keeping with our company's tradition. And we quickly found a possible use of our ECO PAPER. The demand for high-quality white paper carrier bags made of 100% recycled paper is greater than ever. The excellent strength of our ECO PAPER enables us to combine the positive qualities of paper with the carrying capacity of conventional plastic bags, creating paper bags capable of carrying even heavy everyday items.

This aspect makes it ideal for collaborating with our customer Kochshop. It was crucial for us in this collaborative partnership that the carrier bags are suitable for carrying heavy items, but also fulfil the appropriate ecological and sustainability aspects – as that is also in the customer's interest.

Our Eco Paper meets all the demands required of a very sturdy carrier bag. And the tear resistance of our paper, in particular, is ideal for multiple use as a carrier bag. 

Key facts about the bag:

  • 100% recycled paper
  • Carrying capacity 15 kg
  • Disposable as household waste paper
  • Excellent stability
  • Reusable

From the roll to the finished product



Sustainable and ecological: Our ECO papers can be made of up to 100% recycled fibres and are versatile as their properties can be adapted.



Flawless quality is the focus of everything we produce. All our papers are regularly thoroughly checked in detail to reliably guarantee this. Our customer Kochshop, for example, sets great store by an extremely high level of tear resistance to enable each bag to carry a minimum of 15 kg.




Once the paper had been specified and tested, an external service provider was commissioned to produce prototypes. This enabled us to test and optimise the product parameters on an actual product.




The graphics and branding for the bag were designed together with Kochshop and the process was then handed over to a bag producer who printed the material and produced the bags.
