Our vision

The Carton Group’s vision is to become a European leader in quality, innovation and service aiming to become a leader in the European packaging industry, both through organic growth and targeted acquisitions. We are pursuing a buy-and-build strategy in order to combine and continuously develop know-how and expertise from the packaging industry through the acquisition and integration of international partners, to strengthen our market leadership and to open up new markets.

Our claim

We are developing and manufacturing high-quality folding boxes, blanks, corrugated cardboard packaging and displays for a broad range of products and industries. Our many years of experience and expertise as a packaging specialist have made us very familiar with the changing market and allowed us to anticipate trends early on and to always develop innovative solutions for our customers. Thanks to our technical resources, we can produce both small series and large runs. Furthermore, as a full-service provider, we always deliver the very best quality, from consulting to individual product development and finishing. The quality of our products and of the comprehensive services we offer entice consumers to buy, which ultimately contributes to the success of our customers.


We always optimise our production capacities with the expectations of our customers and the market in mind. Thanks to very short turnaround times, we guarantee maximum flexibility, and thereby facilitate the rapid implementation of change requests. Last-minute changes to order quantities, shorter delivery times and changes to designs/artwork can be handled at any time.


We constantly monitor the dynamic behaviour of the market in order to respond flexibly to changes and anticipate trends, and thereby be ready to meet new requirements at all times.


Our highly-motivated, highly-trained employees contribute significantly to the sustainable and first-rate quality of our solutions. They are supported in their work by state-of-the-art printing and processing equipment that is modified at regular intervals and thereby meets all the latest performance and quality standards. Certifications include EN 15593, ISO 9001:2015


Sustainable processes are at the forefront of our philosophy. That is why we do our bit to protect the environment and continuously reduce our CO2 footprint throughout the entire value chain. We are committed to protecting workers’ rights and human rights.


All our processes are focused on optimising our customers’ production processes and therefore Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) – from material selection to packaging development, production and transport.


As a packaging specialist with many years of experience in the industry, we know that innovative solutions are decisive in our customers' success. That’s why we focus on developing unusual packaging solutions as early as the design stage and work in production with innovative technologies.
