DRESS YOUR BRANDS®! is much more than just an advertising slogan to us. We believe that packaging is more than mere protection of its contents.

The transport packaging produced by 'Aldo-Plastik Kunststofffolien GmbH & Co. KG' in Alsdorf is a perfect match for Ewald Schoeller's portfolio. He acquires the company and its employees in 1979.


By buying the first foil printing machine, the company management enters the world of further processing. A measure which is being consistently pursued and developed to this day.


The company was founded in 1943 as "Ewald Schoeller GmbH & Co. KG" - manufacturing paper products and yarns. Almost completely destroyed in the Second World War, it was rebuilt in 1944. Looking ahead to the future, in 1959 they began to run a trial of polyethylene film production. In 1967, Ewald Schoeller GmbH was one of the first companies in Germany to start manufacturing "plastic containers" (today: hollow bodies).
