The company history of Sandler Group

    Since more than 140 years, Sandler stands for excellent products and inno­vative solutions for a wide range of sectors. It all began in 1879, when Christian Heinrich Sandler founded a cotton wool factory in the city of Hof, Bavaria. In the middle of the 20th century, the production of synthetic nonwovens began. This is how we gradu­ally opened up markets that are still relevant today. By expan­ding our production capacities, growing our team, and broadening our techno­logy portfolio, we have developed into a global market leader in the field of nonwoven products.

    Sustain­ability at Sandler

    Sustainability is a topic that has always been with us. Dr. Christian Heinrich Sandler and many members of the Sandler team are actively involved in nature conser­vation projects. On our company premises in Schwarzenbach, we help to preserve the habitat of many animal and plant species with biotope areas. But sustain­ability is also our guiding principle in all other aspects of our business acti­vities. For many years now, we have been conducting intensive research into the further develop­ment of our raw materials with regard to new recycling options and the production of nonwovens using sustainable material alter­natives. And on optimizing our carbon footprint. This has led to the develop­ment of our sustain­ability concept, which focuses on the four pillars of mindset, people, energy and product.
