Swiss quality and roots
SWISS KRONO sp. z o.o. is part of the holding Swiss Krono Group (Ernst Kaindl), the world leader in wood-based products.
The company was founded in 1994 as a result of the acquisition of the State Factory of Particle Boards by the holding. Signing a notarial deed on 7th January gave rise to a new reality.
The Swiss investor, providing a multimillion capital, quickly modernizedthe machineryand technology. Thanks to this, the quality of produced boards was noticed and appreciated by customers. That was only the beginning of change and investment.
1994 – the beginning of the investment and the development of the furniture industry products. Launched production line for particle boards , which is a revolution for the factory in Żary. This is the first ContiRoll press in Poland, providing the best parameters of boards, unattainable in other technologies.
1997 – Kronopol enters the construction products market. We start the run to produce OSB boards, the world's first in ContiRoll technology. It is an investment on an international scale.
1998 – development of new products. Created third line in ContiRoll technology to produce MDF boards. This gives boost to the development of new products, mainly laminate flooring and wall panels
From the very beginning, SWISS KRONO has invested in the development of the production of refined goods, developing the stock of presses for lamination, postforming or cutting to size. Along with the extension of product range, it expanded the distribution network, both in Poland and in foreign markets.
Today SWISS KRONO exports its products to 50 countries on all continents.
The greatest strength of SWISS KRONO are the company's employees. The staff of the company is a stable and well-motivated team of professionals. We have achieved so much thanks to the involvement of people and the faith in success.
It is worth noting the contribution of our foreign colleagues from the holding who offered advice and expertise, especially in the first phase of business development. Today, also the Polish specialists assist their colleagues in all plants around the world.
