Quality and innovation since 1855

Our company has been making history for 165 years.

Today we are an internationally operating family-owned company in the print, paper and foil-processing industry. Since the beginning, the name Faubel has stood for competence in all aspects of product labeling.

Over the course of our long and successful corporate history, the core of our vision has not changed. Sustainable growth, quality standards, innovation and long-term partnership with employees, customers and suppliers are integral parts of our corporate culture. This is what makes us stand out.

Our business units, Faubel Pharma Services and Faubel Creative Solutions, have pooled their potential and energy under the umbrella of the Faubel Group. Development, material and market expertise have made us the leading system provider of functional labels.

SIL, System Integration Laboratory GmbH, an innovative start-up from Paderborn, Germany, has been part of our corporate group since 2017. Together with Faubel, this specialist in RFID and e-paper technology produces labels for Industry 4.0 and digitization purposes. This results in holistic concepts which include software development and system integration.

Product development

Being an international market leader means initiating development and generating new ideas and impulses. We do this with innovations that both resonate with what the market is looking for and meet the needs of our customers.

That’s how we develop labeling solutions for every type of packaging. We always find space for lengthy texts. Especially taking into account legal requirements for product information and safety. Our products are custom-made concepts, developed with passion. Hand specimens and sample rolls create a realistic picture of the final product and allow for preliminary application tests.

Numerous patents and awards prove Faubel’s innovative drive.
