The 9th SEC Technology Tour went to Ortenau on September 7th, 2018. The program included the August Koehler SE paper factory and the Börsig winery.
Thanks to good personal contacts, the seniors were able to get to know the Koehler paper factory intensively. Even if you have never heard of Koehler, you have most likely already had the company's products in your hands, for example in the form of playing cards, beer mats, thermal paper (receipts) or carbonless paper. Koehler's range of specialty products is impressive.
The Koehler Group looks back on a company history spanning over 210 years. Today, with sales 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 plants in Kehl, Greiz and Weisenbach, around 1,800 employees produce over 500,000 t of special paper and cardboard every year for the global market.
The Börsig family cultivates around 5 hectares of vineyards with a focus on red wines from Pinot Noir and Cabernet, but also Riesling, which has an interesting breed due to the granite soil in Ortenau.
The seniors met in the Straußwirtschaft in 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 Ortenau.
