Kistag - from the box to the kitchen
Kistag has been around since 1939. What began with the construction of simple wooden crates is now a leading Swiss company in the fields of packaging and interior finishing. Thanks to far-sighted diversification, prudent investments and a strong awareness of quality, Kistag has established itself as an innovative and reliable partner.
Innovation is and remains our claim and our drive, as the following milestones prove:
Foundation of the Kistag
Foundation of Kistag under the name Kistenfabrik Schüpfheim AG in difficult times. Despite the war, the conviction remains to manufacture durable products with added value using harasses and wooden crates, which meet an increasing demand.
The beginnings of the product range
In addition to wooden crates, other products made of wood are increasingly in demand and produced after the war. This testifies to flexibility and opens doors to the spirit of innovation.
Expansion of production capacity
Expansion of production capacity as a result of strong new customer growth.
Modernisation of production
The demand for high quality wooden products (crates, wooden boxes, and increasingly pallets for industry) continues to grow. Kistag acquires new machines and modernizes the production processes.
2 companies become 1
Kistag integrates Wico Holzbearbeitung Schüpfheim into its own corporate structure, thus pooling resources and strengthening its position in the woodworking sector.
Construction of a new production hall
Kistag continues to grow. In order to meet the high demand for special packaging made of wood, the company invests in a state-of-the-art production hall.
New office building for the production management
The building (made of wood, of course!) is equipped with state-of-the-art IT infrastructure and houses offices, a meeting room and a training room.
Complete redesign of the Kistag showroom
Kistag creates a kitchen experience world with the showroom and offices in the same building for the employees of the "Interior Design" competence center. Customers can now be inspired by kitchens (new highlight: Joel Wicki kitchen!), accessories, materials and surfaces.
New construction of a production hall with solar modules.
The total usable area of 1800 m2, which production as well as storage area complements the existing production. In addition, the company invested in sustainability and installed 1000 m2 of solar modules on the roof. These produce an energy demand for about 45 single-family homes.
Development and launch of EcoPack
Development and launch of EcoPack, the world's first climate-neutral wooden packaging. It was created in collaboration with ETH and promises to revolutionize the packaging industry.
