CATEGORY: Company news BRAND: Grupo Ondunova


The Klingele Group, one of the leading independent manufacturers of corrugated base paper and corrugated board packaging, has acquired 100% of the shares of the Catalan Ondunova Group, a manufacturer of corrugated packaging in Catalonia (Spain); right then, the Gomà family owned the 75% of the shares. Klingele has been a part of the company since the early 70’s; and now Klingele has assumed full ownership. With this step, the German packaging manufacturer continues its growth abroad.


It is a great step for GrupOndunova, since it strengthens and consolidates the commitment of the German group with our growth project, which has been steadily consolidating over the last few years and that will bring new investments, dynamism and employment in the region of Penedès”, stated Jordi Carrió, General Manager of Ondunova and Wondu companies.

 

GrupOndunova was founded in 1957 and is made up of Ondunova and Wondu companies, both in Santa Margarida i els Monjos (Barcelona).

 

Ondunova has a corrugated cardboard plant, with 100 employees; Wondu is specialized in packaging and displays made of corrugated cardboard in digital printing with a total of 20 employees.

The customers include companies from the automotive, personal hygiene, construction, electronics, pharmaceutical and medical industries as well as the beverage industry.

 

 

Wondu was founded in 2016, when the Ondunova Group also established its own business unit for digital printing of small-volume series. Since then, Wondu has been selling individually designed packaging solutions in high-quality printing. The flexibility of the printing and the digital cutting technology enables the design of corrugated board products for seasonal campaigns even in small quantities, thus offers the possibility of approaching new customers with innovative and cost-efficient products.

 

Klingele is a founding member of the Blue Box Partners Alliance, which provides European companies with innovative packaging solutions in consistent quality. At the same time, however, Klingele has always been dedicated to its own international commitments, which include the development of pioneering markets such as Cuba and Mauritania. In Spain, the corrugated cardboard specialist has been present in the Canary Islands since 1965 through its subsidiary Klingele Embalajes.
