Dr. Franz Feurstein GmbH - Traun, Austria


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!
In the meantime, we look forward to welcoming you to cool activities, doing sports with you, and telling you about the numerous additional goodies and benefits at feurstein. Apply now and get to know us!

    The delfort release base paper team spent three very informative and fruitful days in Barcelona at the annual AWA Global Release Liner conference. It was a great chance to listen and learn about the latest trends and innovations. A key focus of the conference was the holistic sustainability of the release liner industry. Between the sessions, we enjoyed one-on-one discussions with conference participants about how delfort can support and contribute to a sustainable future. It was nice to meet again physically and have an opportunity for face-to-face conversations. Thanks to AWA and to all the participants for making it possible! #releaseliner #sustainablesolutions #teamdelfort

    What’s it like inside a state-of-the-art specialty paper manufacturer? Our Wattens Austria location invited 20 students from the Graz University of Technology to find out! Masters and doctoral students from the Institute for Paper, Pulp, and Fiber Technology learned about delfort and our approach to revolutionizing paper. After a presentation about delfort and our products, participants received a customized tour of our technical center and test facilities. In the afternoon, the students enjoyed a visit to the Berginsel ski jump with a former ski jumper. With such bright and motivated students, we are sure the future of paper packaging will be exciting and innovative! Thank you to everyone who attended and made it such a memorable day. #brightminds #futureleaders #buildingthefuture #sustainablesolutions #paperrevolution #papermanufacturer #futureofpackaging
