The 9th SEC Technology took place in Ortenau on Sep 7, 2018. The August Koehler SE paper mill and the Börsig winery were on the agenda.
Thanks to good personal contacts, the senior citizens were able to get to know the Koehler paper mill intensively. Even if you have never heard of Koehler, it is very likely that you have already had products from the company in your hand, for example in the form of playing cards, beer mats, thermal paper (receipts) or carbonless paper. The range of specialty products from Koehler is impressive.
The Koehler Group looks back on more than 210 years of company history. With a turnover of over ? 800 million, it is one of the few independent German family businesses in the paper industry. At the headquarters in Oberkirch and the factories in Kehl, Greiz and Weisenbach, around 1,800 employees produce over 500,000 t of special paper and cardboard for the global market every year.
The Börsig family cultivates around 5 hectares of vineyards with a focus on red wines from Pinot Noir and Cabernet, but also Riesling, which is an interesting breed due to the granite-rich soil in the Ortenau region.
The seniors met in the Straußwirtschaft von Börsig, a lovingly converted large barn, and were able to end the eventful afternoon in the modern Koehler paper factory with a glass of good wine from the Ortenau region.
