According to the German Pulp and Paper Association, “Germany’s paper industry is the foremost in Europe. Globally, it ranks first after the USA, China, and Japan.” And, “With sales of some 14.4 million Euros and an annual output of 23.2 million tons (2010), some 3,000 different paper grades are produced in total, the industry in Germany employs over 41,000 people at 165 production locations.” Impressive numbers. And at Kleinknecht we pride ourselves on making a small contribution to this success story: We provide control equipment for waste paper preparation and de-inking equipment as well as for saw mills and paper machines.
