The entrepreneurial activities of the Peters family have a long tradition which goes back to the year 1870. As a family business we are ensconced in system of values which is characterised by sustainability, long-term orientation, continuity and responsibility for the next generation. This includes also that we meet our responsibility for the environment by carrying out sustainable production processes.
With eight factories, the Peters Group of Companies offers packaging-relevant processes from one source: Starting with the production of corrugated cardboard and its processing to refinement processes, such as special printing methods. At the same time, we ensure disposal and recycling of raw materials, and moreover we operate specialist trading companies for packaging
Under the Group umbrella we develop entrepreneurial strategies together with our subsidiaries, and implement them. We support our subsidiaries in the field of organisation, purchase and administration. In this respect we profit from the flexibility and autonomy of a family-run enterprise. Short communication channels and quick decisions are achieved by flat hierarchies, a decentralised organisation as well as the competence and the personal responsibility of our staff.
Peters Group of Companies is ideally positioned to fulfil effectively the high demands of its customers along the packaging-relevant production and delivery chain. Latest communication systems and future-oriented production processes provide the basis for packaging solutions made of corrugated cardboard, which will convince you as customer and entrepreneur.
It is our task to provide leadership and management for our subsidiaries in order to ensure their sustainable economic success. This comprises the development of strategies, the divisional management and the decision on investment focusses as well as the group-wide finance and company controlling. We are convinced of the principle of decentralised management which emphasises the personal responsibility of the subsidiaries. In the group of companies, we stress the group concept and look after the similarities; at the same time developing and supporting the independent fortes of the individual companies.
For our operatively independent subsidiaries we take over the central purchase, and render available cross-group fields, such as information technology, staff management or controlling, finance and treasury management.
Our entrepreneurial activities concentrate on the needs of our customers. The strategies of the Peters Group of Companies is oriented completely to offer the best added value to you and to strengthen your position in the market. For this purpose we consistently bundle the resources of our subsidiaries, use and support available synergies and develop tailored solutions.
Aristotle already knew that “The whole is more than the sum of its parts”. Along with our subsidiaries we offer specialised products and services in the fields of corrugated cardboard packing, trade and thus can target the tasks and needs of our customers and can develop optimised solutions. The centralization of management, financing and controlling tasks at the holding causes cost optimisation at increased productivity which benefits our customers along with high fail-safe performance.
Peters Group of Companies as a holding is the administrative but also the strategic core of the group of companies. The course for further developments of the group of companies is set here, new ideas are developed and promising strategies are created. This applies for new acquisitions to strengthen and expand the portfolio to the outside as well as for creation, further development and stabilisation of synergies to the outside.
