The history of papermaking in Spremberg began in 2003 with Thomas Prinzhorn's decision to build a paper machine in the Schwarze Pumpe industrial park. The festive inauguration of the paper factory followed in 2005.
Starting in 2009, 100% white uncoated base paper was produced at the Spremberg site. With a keen eye for the development of the market, the need for white coated paper was recognised early on and the company invested in a coating system, which was put into operation in 2015.
We received the biggest honour for the Hamburger Containerboard in Spremberg in 2018 from our owner, Mr. Prinzhorn, with the announcement and ground-breaking ceremony for the construction of the second paper machine.
The outstanding performance and entrepreneurial vision of the Prinzhorn family spurs us on to continue a sustainable advancement of our company. We rely on "tradition" (experience, common value system), but also on "modernity" (innovative strength, new products and processes, state-of-the-art machines and systems). We do not see any contradiction here – on the contrary. Only those who are aware of "their" past and willing to learn from it are able to shape the future.
