Papier-Mettler is a family-owned company that was originally established as a paper wholesaler by H. Georg Mettler. During the initial years of its existence, the firm focused on paper products only before production of paper bags started in 1961. In 1971, the packaging range was extended and Papier-Mettler also began to manufacture plastic bags and carrier bags. Reliability, a down-to-earth approach and a sense of family continue to influence the values of the company to the present day.
