August 11, 2022 (press release) –

During his summer break, Ralph Edelhäußer, directly elected member of the Bundestag, visited the Klingele corrugated board plant in Hilpoltstein on Wednesday, August 10th.

On August 10, 2022, the Klingele Paper & Packaging Group, one of the leading independent manufacturers of corrugated base paper and packaging made of corrugated cardboard, had a visit from Mr. Ralph Edelhäußer, directly elected member of the Bundestag. The CSU members of Hilpoltstein City Council Ulla Dietzel, Christoph Raithel and Mortiz Krug accompanied him on his visit.

The family company, founded in 1920 and headquartered in Remshalden near Stuttgart, is managed by Dr. Jan Klingele is now managed by the third generation. The Klingele Wellpappenwerk Hilpoltstein is one of the four German Wellpappenwerke and currently employs 215 people. Mr. Edelhäußer uses the summer break in Berlin to visit local companies to find out how he can politically support his Roth and Nürnberger Land constituency.

During his tour of the factory, he was able to find out about the manufacturing process of corrugated cardboard and the production of innovative and sustainable packaging solutions for numerous industries and areas of application. "In our day-to-day work, we have high standards in terms of quality, production safety, the environment and sustainability at Klingele," explains Mr. Meier, sales manager at Klingele Hilpoltstein. Mr. Edelhäußer notes that Dr. Klingele recognized certain trends at an early stage and keeps the company on course with forward-looking investments in modern machinery and in efficient and sustainable energy supply.

In addition to a new folding box gluing machine, which is currently being installed, part of the roof of the production hall at the Hilpoltstein corrugated board plant was equipped with a photovoltaic system in the past few months of May/June in order to be able to supply production with its own electricity. Klingele also scores when it comes to sustainability. "I'm surprised at how high the recycling rate for paper and corrugated board is," says Ralph Edelhäußer, because paper fibers can go back into the recycling process up to 25 times. Klingele Hilpoltstein was very happy about the interested visit of Mr. Edelhäußer and the CSU members of the Hilpoltstein City Council.
