Hand in hand for 60 years!

Since its establishment in 1957 Papier-Mettler has shown constant dynamic growth. Hans Georg Mettler founded the family-owned company as a paper wholesaler and initially supplied his customers with paper products and 15 years later started paper bag manufacture. In 1971 Papier-Mettler extended the packaging range with the manufacture of plastic carrier bags. The product range has continued to expand to this day. The company’s values, being family-orientated, reliable with a down-to-earth approach have always been the key to our success.
