Who we are

We are a family enterprise working efficiently to produce individual and Specialised Papers. We sell our papers and our services in both national and international markets.

Our uncoated woodfree papers, such as our Security, Technical, Graphical and Packaging Papers as well as papers which replace plastic products, are made to meet the bespoke requirements of our customers. Our products and services combine the traditional values of reliability and consistent quality, along with highly specialised and innovative expertise.

We continuously develop new products to meet our customers’ high demands and expectations. Therefore we gladly work together with our customers to develop partnerships. In addition to priorities for a constantly high product quality and excellent processing properties, DREWSEN embraces ecological values such as the ability for a product to be recycled or naturally biodegrade, and to procure raw materials from natural and sustainable sources.

Our machinery also shows our high level of professionalism. Our paper machines as well as our finishing technology and equipment, is ‘state of the art’ by industry standards. We continuously invest in our plant and maintain it in excellent condition thorough a weekly cleaning programme, and servicing at regular intervals.

Professionalism, together with the growth of our enterprise, is not only important for our employees and shareholders, but also they are of vital importance to our customers. Only our long-term profitability will ensure the continued existence of our enterprise. Thus we will be available as a reliable partner for our customers well into the future.
