Hello and welcome to the feurstein paper mill. You’ve probably heard of us before, haven’t you? If not: we belong to the international delfort group and are very #proud that we are #1 for specialty papers for the packaging and cigarette industry. Here at our location in Traun, around 300 employees develop and produce our cool papers on three paper machines. You can see these papers in use in the well-known burger restaurant with the large yellow “M”. 😉

Used all over the world for all kind of burgers, our burger papers keep your fingers clean and the burgers nice and #fresh. But hey, we’ll go one better: Since you’re already at the “M”, take a look at the French fries bags! We will give you three guesses where the paper is from!

As you can probably imagine by now, these packaging papers for the food industry sell like hot fries, uhhh… buns. So, we are always on the lookout for new apprentices who want to make a decent career with us.

And best of all: Because we are part of the large international delfort group, you also have the opportunity to work at another location after you have successfully completed your training. Until that happens, our super nice apprenticeship trainers are your mentors and supporters, so you’ll soon be a true expert in your field!

    A key element of the circular economy is recycling and its role in keeping materials in the production cycle. Unfortunately, large amounts of packaging produced today cannot be recycled. We are on a mission with our R&D partner DELSCI to develop packaging that eliminates the need for material separation, increasing the likelihood that the packaging will be recycled.

    The material you select to package your goods speaks volumes about your brand vision and product quality. Consumers are aware of how packaging impacts the planet and actively support companies that use responsible packaging. Additionally, policymakers have begun implementing ambitious waste reduction targets and recycling regulations.  We are working together with our R&D partner DELSCI GmbH to meet this demand by creating the next generation of packaging – lightweight, recyclable, fiber-based solutions with functional barriers. In our new recyclability series, we will deep dive into how we use science, collaboration, and innovation to design some of the best recyclable barrier paper packaging solutions on the market.
