Founded on 2 June 1846 by Johan Wilhelm Schur, the company is one of Denmark’s oldest, and probably the oldest packaging business in the world run on family lines.
In Schur, innovation and tradition go hand in hand. For almost 175 years the Schur family has been at the head of the company and the sixth generation is now part of the management.
Believing in the future, seeing the changing times and altering market conditions as a challenge, not a threat, have always been Schur’s philosophy and greatest strength. And this is reflected in Schur’s long history.
Today, Schur is an international team of 12 companies, offering packaging, packaging machines, packaging systems, and knowhow. Schur has a staff of approx. 950 people employed at factories in Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Australia, and the USA.
