Your partner for bags for over 360 years

Over the last centuries we established ourselves from a ropemaking factory founded by Christian Sieber in 1652 in the Bohemian Reichenberg to one of the most important bag producers in Europe. The site has been moved since then to Bad Reichenhall in Bavaria, but it is still the original family who runs the business in the 11th generation. Together with 60 employees we design, manage and sell our products with our partners. Our annual turnover of approximately 5.000.000 bags reflects the high customer satisfaction with our products.
