Company anniversary: 55 years of SWISS KRONO AG Switzerland

07.01.2021 | News | SWISS KRONO Switzerland

Menznau, January 2021 – It was back in 1966 that Ernst Kaindl († 2017) founded the company as ‘AG für Holzindustrie’ in Menznau, Lucerne. Fast-forward 55 years and this original commercial site has developed into a major international group of companies for ecological wood-based materials. The Swiss site is the parent plant of the SWISS KRONO Group, and its products are now exported to over 90 countries. Around 480 people work day in, day out at the site, using state-of-the-art production facilities to produce innovative, high-quality wood materials to the highest Swiss standards, which are then marketed worldwide.

2021 will see the Swiss company celebrate its 55th anniversary. With this in mind, SWISS KRONO AG will be delving into its company archives once a month to showcase exactly how the site has changed in over half a century.

The wood-based materials manufacturer will be taking captivated visitors on a journey through 55 years of company history complete with fascinating old photos and brand-new snapshots of company life, including the administration building, trends, advertising material, transport logistics and the production facilities.
