History

Competence and a feel for innovation – a family recipe for success

It all started with a thirst for adventure and an idea: from the totally spontaneous decision to take on an order for printing bottle labels, a state-of-the-art yet traditional, long-standing screen printing company was born. The Freudenberg family founded its printing plant in 1966 in the Striesen district of Dresden and, within just five years, built it up into a successful medium-sized business with 40 employees. Even the compulsory acquisition and nationalisation of the company and the family’s subsequent departure from the German Democratic Republic did not dampen their pioneering spirit and passion for screen printing. “VEB Siebdruck Dresden” became one of the first companies in 1990 to be returned to its original owners.

Thanks to the Freudenberg family’s characteristic energy and vision, they successfully overcame these early difficulties in setting up their company. It wasn’t long before the screen printing company was up and running again, and, in 1995, it relocated to new premises in the Niedersedlitz district of Dresden. This site subsequently underwent several extensions and, in 1997, a state-of-the-art production hall was constructed. The company was once again dealt a heavy blow when, in 2002, the site was flooded – but they managed to weather even this storm. The screen printing production space, which now covers an area of 2000 m², is equipped with some of the most state-of-the-art and flexible machinery in the entire industry. This equipment, and our highly skilled workforce, allows Freudenberg to run highly efficient and high-quality production operations, to work on unusual formats and unique customer projects and to develop technically highly sophisticated solutions.
