After an intensive planning and construction period, the company opened its first location outside of Switzerland, in Buford, GA, in a ceremony on June 21, 2018. With the newly established Gezolan (KRAIBURG), LP, the well-known Swiss manufacturer of granules has taken a major step toward its goal of internationalization.
Gummiwerk KRAIBURG, founded by Friedrich Schmidt at the end of the 1940s, developed rapidly and expanded continuously. In 1968, his son Peter Schmidt took over a factory in Tittmoning – with the vision of a new production process for recycling tyre rubber. What started with basic rubber mats, has evolved into high-quality stable floorings with “that little extra” over the years. Today, we sell about 1.5 million m² per year all over the world.
Gummiwerk KRAIBURG GmbH & Co. KG is a company of KRAIBURG Holding GmbH & Co. KG and celebrates its 70th birthday in October 2017. The company’s beginnings go back to the year 1947. As a leading solution provider with the focus on Europe, we have been developing, producing and marketing technical rubber compounds of superior quality since 1947.
