Aug. Schwan company - company history
Although Schwan strives for constant optimization, it is important to value and respect the path that lead to the status quo. With nearly 140 years history, Schwan goes back to the beginning of the second industrialization.
Flexibility and constant improvement coin the company history. The business unit lamination is of course not that old. Nevertheless, there are more than 40 years to look back.
Experience and Quality for 140 years
Between 1970 and 1980 close contacts to Japan enabled a sales cooperation for operating resources like Flange Rings and Travellers for the textile industry.
Because of this cooperation and the specialization in this niche, Schwan found access to the comparable specialized lamination industry. The upraising market gave Schwan the opportunity to grow into the new industry and to adjust its portfolio to the changing demand.
Plates and Pads - Made in Germany
Soon, Schwan became an integral part of the evolving card industry as a well-known supplier for press plates and press pads. Both are equally involved, when it comes to card lamination. Pressure and heat merge the different layers of the card together. The process differs depending on the used laminator, material and the properties of the final card. In addition, the size of each pad or plate must be adjusted to the laminator.
Because of that, Schwan started the new millennium with an own production plant. This big step enabled Schwan to adapt pads and plates significant faster to the customers needs. Based on the gained experiences, Schwan started subsequently own product lines for the different applications. The result is the current program here on the website.
Reliable, smooth and solid - we stand for quality made in Germany!
