We are shocked and deeply saddened to see the devastating consequences of this environmental disaster. The work done by the emergency workers and organisations cannot be praised highly enough. They have worked tirelessly since the disaster happened to help the people on the ground to clear the damage and provide them with hope and comfort,” says Jürgen Heindl, founder and Chief Executive Officer of Progroup.
“It is important to pull together in these challenging times. Now it is vital for regional businesses and society to provide support to help the victims. As a company which has deep roots in Rhineland-Palatinate, this is very close to our hearts and it goes without saying that we want to do our bit to help here,” adds Maximilian Heindl, deputy CEO.
Progroup is firmly rooted in the South Palatinate region. This was where the company’s successful growth story began 29 years ago with the first corrugated sheetfeeder plant in Offenbach a. d. Queich. Part of the company’s philosophy is to be a good neighbour to the people in the region. The family-run company attaches particular importance to thinking and acting sustainably and with a long-term view.
Progroup AG, located in Landau in the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany, is one of the leading manufacturers of containerboard and corrugated board in Europe. Since it was founded in 1991 in Offenbach/Queich, the company has been pursuing a consistent growth strategy which, in addition to technological leadership, is also based on the use of innovative and environmentally friendly production technologies. Progroup operates production sites in six countries in Central Europe. These currently include three paper factories, eleven corrugated sheetfeeder plants, a logistics company and an RDF power station. With 1,455 employees, the company generated sales of around 881 million euros in 2020.
