Privacy policy

Company presentation
The Schur Group’s primary operations comprise development, production and sale of cardboard and flexible packaging, packaging and production machinery as well as complete packaging systems. They are complemented by development, production and sale of distribution and post room equipment as well as storage and palletising installations for newspapers, magazines and advertising materials. We have developed a fully automated logistics system for printing works for this segment. An additional segment of our operations is marketing of innovative consumer products and the DropStop® pourer. Aside from the parent company, each individual company within the Group has its own development, production and sales operations. 

The products of the cardboard companies are mainly sold in Northern Europe and the USA, whereas the flexible product, machinery and consumer companies sell their products all over the world.
