The Group

The Panther Group is a family-owned and managed company and supplies the European Market with corrugated board, packaging, displays, pre-print products and various services. The strategy we follow for our customers is to develop innovations and to use synergies. What that means is that we subject ourselves to continual self-development. Flat hierarchies, decentralised organisation and on-the-spot decisions-makers ensure the necessary degree of flexibility. Modern technologies and standards find easy entry thanks to readily understandable operating structures and clear competences.

Our Panther Innovations Program also encourages commitment on the part of all the employees throughout the Group. This creates fertile ground for creative potential and vision. Panther’s willingness to invest follows our innovative spirit.

With this awareness, we make practical use of our business relationships, and stand alongside you as a forward-looking, trusting partner. All Panther’s plants are located throughout Germany strategically favourable sites near the border.

Impressions in the world of the Panther Group

Traditional family business

The Panther Group is a family business headquartered in Tornesch, Schleswig-Holstein (Germany). The foundation for today’s Panther Group was laid in 1902: the founding of the Altonaer Wellpappenfabrik. We have focused successfully since then on the healthy growth of the Group. We have founded or acquired other companies, developed new locations and plants as well as captured markets.

We invested continuously during all of these phases to push forward constant growth. We always give top priority to the personal element in our business relationships. Panther has now accompanied businesses large and small in the national and international industry for more than a century. More information on our history.

Latest technologies

The individual plants are continuing to develop towards Industry 4.0 through sustained modernisation of their production facilities and the expansion of digital process steps. The Panther Group offers individually customised and partnership solutions wherever you can derive benefits through closer networking between our systems. At the same time, the family-run company group will carry traditional values and proven virtues forward into the future.

One thing has not changed since 1902: our passion for corrugated board

At one time we produced classical brown packaging. Nowadays, our product range encompasses a broad spectrum of services. From corrugated board and display manufacture to printing including assembly: The Panther Group offers you all these services from a single source. This has been made possible by opening up new sites and associated market segments. Our services are based on accumulated know-how and an intuitive instinct for synergies.
