Faubel's corporate history goes back more than 165 years. Today, we are a family-owned business operating worldwide in the printing, paper, and film converting industries.
In the course of our success story, our mission statement has been consolidated: sustainable growth, high quality, and a passion for innovation. Our corporate culture comprises long-term partnerships with employees, customers, and suppliers.
The Faubel Pharma Services and Faubel Creative Solutions divisions have combined their performance capabilities under the umbrella of the Faubel Group. Development, material, market knowledge and experience have made us the leading system provider of functional labels.
SIL System Integration Laboratory GmbH from Paderborn has been part of our corporate Group since 2017. Together with SIL, which is close to the university, Faubel implements smart labels featuring RFID and e-paper technology. The result is holistic concepts that cover software development and system integration.
We are always on the lookout for unusual ideas and valuable collaborations.

Europe, USA, and Asia
Living Service Excellence
We attach great importance to reliable and consistent communication. With the help of our international sales network, we maintain a personal exchange with our customers on-site. In addition, almost the entire Faubel team can be reached by phone, email, or video call. Transparent project coordination with feasibility analysis, material testing, quotation preparation, costing, and milestone planning is just as much a part of our services as detailed documentation for ensuring the seamless traceability of all processes.
Our headquarters are located in the middle of Germany, in Melsungen. It is where our products are developed and manufactured. Further locations support our sales in Europe.
Our sister corporation, Faubel Pharma Services Corp., has existed in Bordentown, New Jersey, since 2009. Our local team serves the US market and has the technology to fulfill overprinting orders.
In 2014, Faubel also opened a sales office in Shanghai, China.
Being an international market leader also means providing impetus and implementing ideas. Our product development puts our customers' needs into practice - always with a finger on the pulse of time.
At Faubel, we develop labels for every type of container and application. We are well acquainted with many industries' legal requirements for product information and safety. We are therefore able to develop demand-oriented concepts for our customers. Hand samples and sample rolls give our customers an accurate impression of the final product and help us conduct initial application tests.
Numerous patents and awards bear witness to Faubel's innovative strength.
As a family-run business, we are aware of our corporate responsibility.
All areas of action are compiled in our Code of Conduct. Partnership, transparency, and fairness towards our employees, suppliers, and business partners are vital prerequisites. As a responsible neighbor, we are committed to the region. That is why we are happy to contribute to its attractiveness and quality of life. We also support community life through sponsoring and donations — a multifaceted commitment that gives us great pleasure. Faubel has been WCA certified since 2012. In 2022, Faubel received a silver award from EcoVadis for responsible corporate conduct, placing it among the top 30 percent of performers.
Environmental protection and resource-efficient production are top priorities at Faubel. We have installed photovoltaic systems on the roofs of our newer buildings. Process heat is used to heat the interiors, and water-bearing pipes regulate the climate inside our premises. This measure saves 16.6 tons of CO² per year. Faubel purchases paper, films, paints, varnishes, and adhesives from certified suppliers. Since 2014, all materials have been free of benzophenone, inks are made from renewable raw materials, and paper comes from trees planted specifically for this purpose. We recycle our surplus and waste.
