About Model Group
Model Group develops, manufactures, and supplies smart, innovative, and high-quality packaging and display solutions made of solid and corrugated cardboard. Model Group employs around 4,600 people in 15 European locations. Otto Model started producing industrial cardboard in the 1930s. In the US, he bought a round screening machine that was used to produce cardboard products. In the 1950s, the demand for corrugated board increased thanks to its low weight and stability compared to other packaging and transport materials. The company also specializes in the production of corrugated board. In 1991, Daniel Model joined the company and took the opportunity to take over a factory in the Czech Republic, which was the first step towards internationalization. Today, manual paper manufacturing is done only at selected stages in the production chain. Instead of individual sheets, the company focuses on the industrial production of paper on large rolls.
