History

A second-generation company of the Heinzel family
The history of paper production in Laakirchen goes back to the middle of the 19th century. At that time Franz Schuppler bought the old "Danzermühle" at the river Traun and founded the "Traunthaler Holzstofffabrik". After Schuppler's death in 1884, his sons Alfred and August took over the company. August left the company after a few years. In 1921, Karl Schleck, Alfred's son-in-law, joined the company and took over the management of the business in 1944 after Alfred Schuppler died. In 1963 Wilfried Heinzel, uncle of Alfred Heinzel, the current owner of the Heinzel Group, took over the management. In 1988, Wilfried Heinzel sold the paper mill to the SCA Group. In 2013, Alfred Heinzel bought the company back and led the company from now on in the second generation.
