Success hat tradition

Since 1972, at Paul & Co Austria we have stood for continuity and customer satisfaction. Since 1993 we have been part of the Kunert Group. We refined this self-perception in 1993 with the takeover by the Kunert Group. Through close cooperation with the paper core specialist Paul & Co of the Kunert Group, we succeed in offering you also optimum edge protector solutions in addition to paper cores. We primarily supply the markets in Austria, Czechia, Slovenia, Bosnia and Croatia. As specialists for paper cores and edge protectors, your satisfaction is our stated aim. We would like to have a long-term and trusting relationship with you. Together we not only have gained experience over many years, we have also grown through ever new challenges.

However, we do not see ourselves as a simple manufacturing company. Instead, we are a service-oriented company where you, our customers, are the priority. Our goal: Together with you, we would like to convert your individual requirements into solutions.

Well placed for the future

Going forward, we will not disappoint the trust that you, our long-term customers, have placed in us in the past. For us, your individual requirements are the top priority.

Together with you we develop custom-made solutions that correspond to your requirements.

Our aim: A long-term, strong and close relationship. Our path: As in the past, we will also rely on trusting cooperation, intensive advice, long-term experience and reliable products in the future.
