Birkner International PaperWorld - our newly designed internet portal with new interesting offers for you!

There have been many changes in the paper industry in recent years, which have ultimately reflected the serious changes in the economy and society. Digitisation processes, for example, have led to a sharp decline in the demand for graphic papers and printer papers. On the other hand, the ever-increasing number of people who also order everyday consumer goods over the internet has meant that manufacturers of packaging materials, cardboard boxes and folding cartons have to produce in ever greater quantities.

Increasing environmental awareness and the growing consciousness of the ecological footprint should also be mentioned in this context. The ban on plastic, which applies in more and more areas, has made many producers of paper and cardboard products take action: In the meantime, paper straws, paper carrier bags or biodegradable disposable tableware are becoming part of the product portfolio as a matter of course.

We have redesigned our homepage for you and also want to take account of the changes in the paper industry. With our new bundles Gold, Silver and Bronze we want to better reflect the changed customer needs in our product portfolio. The advantages for you are obvious:

  • Both finding and being found in our approx. 28,000-address industry directory for the paper industry is easier than before.
  • In our newly designed news section you can now choose between general news, trade fair news and job news, for example.
  • Our homepage functions more than before as an interface between those who are searching and those who want to be found.
  • In addition to the online area, we continue to offer the printed book edition and are thus also interesting for those target groups who still prefer the traditional way of searching for companies and products on printed paper
  • Responsive web design always ensures a high level of user-friendliness, regardless of the size of the end device
