Passion wrapped in innovation: 125 years of Paul & Co and birth of the Kunert Group.

Founded in 1893 by Alois Paul with a passion for developing and reinventing things, the founding family Kunert still burns with the same fire. Dedication is firmly embedded in its DNA and spreads over to everyone working for the companies of the Kunert Group. What drives all of them: to protect and increase the value of their customers with forward-looking, tailor-made solutions.

More than quality. Perfection.

It has always been the Kunert Group’s aim to ensure the success of its customers. It’s not a product that’s developed. It’s a solution for a customer’s individual requirements and challenges. Frequently, these impulses create new standards that set the bar for the entire industry.

FachPack – Forum for Innovations.

At FachPack, the Kunert Group will be presenting its competence and exciting innovations. A little preview:

  • Smooth production with Climate Core – In detailed work with customers, Paul & Co has developed a paper core for packaging papers that retains its straightness even in changing or extreme climatic conditions.
  • Less waste with AR cores – The anti-slip, dull surface allows optimal reel handling. Thanks to fixing without adhesives, wound nonwovens can be used down to the last centimetre - without any damage.
  • Logistics solutions – Innovations of the Kunert Group in the field of angular edge protectors improve current production processes. Continuous barcode imprints ensure exact positioning of the edge protector within the processing operation of packaging systems.
  • Award-worthy honeycomb packaging– A product development of Kunert Wellpappe is nominated for the corrugated cardboard industry’s Innovation Award: now, packaging for materials to be wound can be folded in a few steps without tools and can be stacked to save space thanks to its hexagonal end shape. For quality assurance, the material (e.g. yarn) hangs freefloating in its packaging.
  • More individuality in packaging design options – Kunert Wellpappe presents packaging concepts that make it easier than ever to solve customer-specific requirements: as an example, tailor-made packaging of an E-city scooter is shown at the booth.

It’s the future that drives us.
