Our History

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.

Year 1951

Company Foundation

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.

Year 1961

Innovation—First Self-Adhesive Labels

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.

Name change to “Etiketten-Schreiner”
Year 1974 and 1976

25 years “Labels Schreiner” and Generational Change

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”.

Year 1984 and 1987

Expansion of Operations at the Former Location

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.

Year 1993

Move to Oberschleissheim

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.

“Grand Opening” of the Chinese Site

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.

2016 “Green Building”: Sixth Building at Headquarters

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. 

Production Opening in Dorfen

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.

Relocation of the Chinese Production Site

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.
