When Marc Weigel is talking it sounds like a travelogue: Offenbach, Douvrin, Burg, Rokycany, Poland, Italy and England, each one of them a landmark in Progroup’s progression to leadership of the corrugated board industry. Marc Weigel was one of the first pioneers, and he still occupies this position today.
He started out as an electrician in 1992 with staff number 4 in the construction of plant PW01 in Offenbach. Everyone was under enormous pressure, “In September 1992 the first staff were recruited and production commenced in November of that year”, he remembers. One of his subsequent jobs was to cooperate in the development of the standards for the plants which followed.
