We have been producing plastic packaging and films for the dairy and food industries since 1963. As an experienced partner for packaging solutions, we offer a wide range of individual products and services – from conception and development through production to storage and logistics.
In addition to our main factory in Meinerzhagen-Valbert, there has been a second factory in Schkopau near Halle an der Saale since 2009. In Meinerzhagen, packaging is produced using thermoforming and injection molding processes, as well as films made of PS (polystyrene), PP (polypropylene) and PET (polyethylene terephthalate). Our factory in Schkopau specializes in the production of film, especially for the dairy industry, from PP and PS.
With around 200 employees, Fernholz processes 2,000 tons of plastic granules every month, which corresponds to around 2.5 billion packages per year.
