1974Establishment of the Lichtenfels site> read more

The company Zewawell AG established the Lichtenfels site in 1975 as a distribution depot for JIT delivery of products to the mail-order company Baur - Burgkunststadt.

The demand-based focus of the company was therefore set in stone at an early stage. Mr Günter Lemmink, in his capacity as the factory manager at the new site, was given the task of establishing a viable customer base.

1985Establishment of LEWELL Katonagen GmbH in Lichtenfels> read more

After the early years of establishment, the Lichtenfels site boasted fully working small-volume production operations and approx. 500 m2 of storage space. Approx. 15 employees then supplied products to medium-sized businesses in the region and generated turnover of approx. 1 million DM.

However, when the main customer was lost, Mr Günter Lemmink took the opportunity to take over the site as part of a "management buyout".

The company Lewell-Kartonagen GmbH in Lichtenfels was established.

1987Investment in format and material processing> read more

Once the customer base of the fledgling Lewell-Kartonagen GmbH was consolidated in the first few years, investments were made in the processing of large cardboard boxes measuring up to 4.80 m.

This meant that not only could large-volume packaging for the metal-processing industry be produced, but triple-flute heavy-duty corrugated board could also be provided.

1992 / 1993CAD-based prototyping> read more

The production halls in Lichtenfels were purchased and the work to expand the capacity up to approx. 2,500 m2 also began in the same year.

The introduction of CAD-based prototyping created the basis for optimum expertise in consulting and development.

1995 / 1996Establishment of demand-based production> read more

The levels of production-technology expertise of Lewell-Kartonagen GmbH were expanded still further with the purchase of a rotary die cutter. In parallel with this, the overall area capacity was now increased to almost 4,000 m2. The company had become established in the market with its philosophy of demand-based production and delivery.

To further enhance punctuality and reliability for JIT deliveries, the company acquired its own dedicated fleet of vehicles.

1998 / 1999Specialisation in multipiece, constructive packaging> read more

Constructive, innovative products became increasingly important at Lewell-Kartonagen GmbH. To reflect this, the company invested in a flat-bed stamping machine in order to be able to deliver die-cut packaging.

The overall area was again expanded to 5,500 m2 in order to create sufficient space for future growth.

2001 / 2002Creation of groundbreaking production structure> read more

A great step was taken to reorganise and modernise all production operations. A new rotary die cutter for high-quality printing and a mini inliner met the demands of customers and formed the basis for a great increase in efficiency in production.

2005 / 2006Opening of production site in Eisfeld, Thuringia> read more

A new factory was constructed in Eisfeld, Thuringia. With a total length of more than 130 m, a fully automated production line specialising in large packaging was installed.

Based on this innovative machine technology, it was then possible to deliver outstanding productivity along with a great degree of flexibility. A great advantage for us and our customers.

2008 / 2009Added value for our customers> read more

Innovative machine technology is required to deliver real added value in the design of packaging. Accordingly, the area of punching was expanded to include a flat-bed stamp and investments were also made in the area of adhesive technology.
