1932 - 2022: KOHLSCHEIN celebrates 90th anniversary

On June 1, 1932, Ewald Kohlschein founded the "Ewald Kohlschein - EKA-Plattenfabrik". Since 1950, the company has been operating under the name KOHLSCHEIN. From the very beginning - as expressed in the original company name "EKA-Plattenfabrik" - the company has been engaged in the industrial production of board materials from fiber-based raw materials.

Over the decades, KOHLSCHEIN has become a leading manufacturer and supplier of MATERIALS for the printing industry, displays and packaging. With the new business areas - SERVICES - related to the processing of paper and board - and CREATIVE SOLUTIONS for brand owners and retailers, internal synergy effects have been used, which have contributed to the successful history of the company. 

To this day, KOHLSCHEIN is an independent family business and employs 120 people in two plants. The company has an international presence and supplies its high-quality materials to customers in over 30 countries. 

Managing Director Oliver Höflich sees two main factors behind the company's success: "With our environmentally friendly products made from renewable raw materials, we are as innovative as we are sustainable by tradition. Furthermore, the cooperation with our customers and partners as well as our employees is characterised by trust and reliability." 

KOHLSCHEIN also has big goals for the coming years. The company wants to continue growing at a healthy pace while expanding its market position. "We are pleased to celebrate our 90th company anniversary this year and would like to thank all our companions for their loyalty and good cooperation," Höflich continues.
