Embark on a journey through 70 years of Schreiner Group: Find out how we have developed from a handicraft business for embossed seal labels to a high-tech company for innovative labels and functional parts.
Margarete and Theodor Schreiner found the company “M. Schreiner – Spezialfabrik für geprägte Siegelmarken und Etiketten” in a 45m² garage in the Laim district of Munich. Thus, after the Second World War, they dare to take the leap into independence.
Schreiner introduces self-adhesive technology, develops its first own self-adhesive label and renames itself “Etiketten-Schreiner”. A move to a larger building in the Fasanerie district in the north of Munich becomes necessary.
The son Helmut Schreiner takes over the company in 1974. The annual turnover reaches DM 2.5 million. Within two years, sales double to DM 4.6 million, necessitating another move to Waldvögeleinstraße in the north of Munich.
36 employees celebrate the company's 25th anniversary in 1976. The company is now called “Schreiner Etiketten- und Selbstklebetechnik”.
Innovations play an important role in the 1980s: The company has been adding additional functions to labels since 1984, thus offering its customers a high level of added value. This approach is continuously expanded in the following decades.
The company building in Waldvögeleinstraße in the north of Munich is expanded in 1987 and an additional floor is added.
In 1993, the company and its 160 employees move to Bruckmannring in Oberschleissheim near Munich, where the company is now headquartered.
The second building is being constructed on Bruckmannring. The company takes on its current name and establishes the Schreiner ProTech, Schreiner MediPharm, Schreiner ProSecure, Schreiner LogiData, Schreiner VarioLight and Schreiner Label and Self-Adhesive Technology divisions.
At the time of construction of the third building on Bruckmannring in Oberschleissheim, the company had 460 employees and achieved annual sales of 67.1 million euros.
With the establishment of Schreiner MediPharm LP in Blauvelt (NY), USA, and the opening of the production site there, the requirements of American pharmaceutical customers are implemented.
After 38 years of management, Helmut Schreiner hands over the reins of the company to his son Roland Schreiner and joins the Advisory Board. Building V is being constructed at the headquarters in Oberschleissheim.
Under the motto “Inspired by Tradition—Built for Innovation”, Schreiner Group opened a production site in China in 2016. The start of its own production in Shanghai is another milestone in Schreiner Group's internationalization strategy.
The growth-oriented family business is constantly developing and needs more space accordingly. Building VI at the headquarters in Oberschleissheim will be designed and built as a CO2-neutral “Green Building” in 2016. In general, Schreiner Group, as a pioneer in the industry, is increasingly focusing on renewable energies in building technology and, as a sustainable company, hosts several bee colonies on its premises.
With the opening of a second production site in the Munich metropolitan region, Schreiner Group is responding to its continuous growth. A significant proportion of labels for the pharmaceutical industry are handled at the Dorfen plant, which covers an area of just under 5,000m².
The production site in Shanghai, which was launched in 2016, is becoming too small due to the company's growth. The new site, which is also located in the Shanghai metropolitan area, offers more than twice as much operating space. In addition to Schreiner ProTech, Schreiner MediPharm will also produce directly in China in the future.
