120 Years of FRIES

We can look back with pride at the 120 years of Fries Success factors that are still prominent at Fries today are also clearly evident in the company’s history: continuous innovation, adaptability and employees at the centre of success. Fries was founded as a “paper tubes factory operating using water and steam” from the times of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Although the factory had to be used as a weapons factory during both World Wars, afterwards the company still managed to become the market leader as part of the economic upturn and the booming textiles industry. As early as the 1950s, Fries started to focus on plastics 
processing.

Nowadays, we no longer work in paper production, tubes or the textile industry. Rather, we have a wide range of innovative products that are sold on a global scale. In all those years of transitions and changes, two things have remained constant. Ongoing investments at the site in Sulz and, above all, expert, capable, motivated and committed employees who have contributed to making our company what it is today.
