Company Philosophy

Company Strategy

Concentrated Competence
The Schreiner Group umbrella brand extends across three business units. Drawing on in-depth market knowledge, they serve their customers as capable development partners and reliable quality suppliers. In addition, Schreiner Group’s business partners benefit from the know-how and resulting solutions offered by specialized competence centers.

Schreiner Group’s competence centers are focused on utilizing and driving the further development of specialized technologies, and delivering customer-specific value-added services. Due to the close interaction between the business units and the competence centers, the entire range of Schreiner Group’s consulting expertise is available to every customer.

The aspiration to continually improve in all areas is reflected in our high-quality products.

Employees

We strongly believe that innovation and people make the difference. In order to ensure innovative and sustainable growth, we at Schreiner Group thrive to create a positive environment, a family friendly company culture, as well as modern working conditions. For years, we have received various awards for our contributions as an attractive employer.

Training enjoys a particularly high priority at Schreiner Group. We train young talent in ten apprentice positions – and we do this with proven outstanding success. In the past ten years alone, five of our apprentices had the best examination results in all of Germany. Ten percent of our employees are former apprentices.

Environment

For decades, we at Schreiner Group have been committed to being ambassadors and pioneers for environmental protection Despite our strong growth, we have reduced our carbon output by 70% over the past four years. Our portion of renewable energy has increased from 15% to 51% in the last three years and should continue to increase. By using solvent-free printing ink and automatic cleaning systems, the consumption of solvents was able to be reduced significantly.


Our years of activity in the field of climate protection have been honored with numerous awards, including the silver medal of the “Munich for Climate Protection Club” and the “Lean & Green Efficiency Award.” We are one of the only mid-sized companies that belongs to the exclusive Klimaschutz-Unternehmen e.V. (registered association of climate protection companies).

Social Responsibility

We at Schreiner Group are strongly committed to our home municipality of Oberschleissheim near Munich. As the largest employer at the Oberschleissheim location, we support numerous social and cultural projects at preschools, schools, sports clubs, or church congregations.


Above all, we believe that encouraging qualified junior employees is an important aspect of social responsibility.

Maintaining Tradition

But also centuries-old traditions such as the Coopers’ Dance and the “Printers’ Baptism Celebration” continue to be practiced sincerely by us. Schreiner Group has supported the old tradition of the Coopers’ Dance, which according to legend originated in 1516. Back then, Munich was overrun with the plague. To bring pleasure to the people and to bring life back to the streets, the coopers danced throughout the city. Every seven years, most recently in 2019, the barrel makers of Munich perform the dance of their guild in their colorful costumes as the guests of Schreiner Group.

Another tradition from the craft guilds dating back to the middle ages lives on with the “christening” of young printers after the completion of their apprenticeship – the so-called “Printers’ Baptism Celebration.” By taking a bath in a wooden tub, young printers are symbolically cleansed from the “mischievousness, propensity for mistakes, botched jobs, and sloppy work” of their apprenticeship.
