AboutPapiersackfabrik TENAX GmbH & Co.KG


Regional ties and internationality, career and family as well as tradition and innovation do not have to mean contradictions - not at TENAX. Our company has over 100 years of experience in the industry. The highest art of engineering and the pursuit of perfection also make us what we are: one of the largest and most successful industrial bag manufacturers in Europe. More than 100 employees at the location in Germany, constant investments in personnel and the production facility for paper sacks as well as passion for our product allow our company to grow sustainably.

At TENAX, long-term  positive development is more important than short-term profit maximization. Quality and flexibility are in the foreground  of our actions - because tradition  is not synonymous with deadlocked structures. We grow with our tasks, adapt  to current events. That is why we at TENAX take  responsibility for people  and nature. We have committed ourselves to the sustainable use of  energy, water and raw materials in the production of our TENAX industrial sacks  . 


TENAX – a veteran of the industry

Paper is essential for our industrial development - as a writing medium, as a raw material and as a packaging material. A packaging material made from renewable raw materials, also in the form of paper bags for over 150 years.

Founded in 1917, the paper sack factory TENAX GmbH & Co. KG is a traditional German company and part of the Graf von Spee group of companies. Many years of experience paired with curiosity and ingenuity make up our recipe for success. This is how we were able to develop from the former paper factory to what we are today: one of the top suppliers of high-quality paper sacks - nationally and internationally.


Continuous further development for the best products

We work as a team. Cohesion and trust result in a family corporate culture. We can only produce industrial sacks in proven TENAX quality if we treat everyone involved in the production chain fairly and transparently. We make short-term decisions, act quickly and flexibly. The requirements of our customers determine our thoughts and actions. On a partnership basis, we break new ground together with our customers and suppliers and develop innovative products.The following points form the pillars of our corporate structure:

  • Steady organic and solid growth.
  • Strengthening of the domestic market.
  • Expansion of the European market.
  • Continuous investments in machines and logistics.

In addition, we feel responsible for society and nature. That is why we only use raw materials from ecologically, economically and socially sustainable forestry. Our long-term goal is to minimize the consumption of energy, water and raw materials as far as possible and to work in a climate-neutral manner. Dealing conscientiously with nature, people and society is a matter of course for us.
