Continuity and New Departures

Schreiner Group’s history begins in 1951 with Margarete and Theodor Schreiner, the two founders of the “M. Schreiner” specialized factory for embossed seal stamps and labels. In 1974, their son Helmut took over the management and, in turn, passed it on to his son Roland in 2012. In its third generation, Schreiner Group is still a family company and remains faithful to its principles under the leadership of Roland Schreiner. The values of innovation, quality, performance, and enthusiasm shape the spirit of enterprise at Schreiner Group.
