Constantia Teich celebrates 110 years
2,000 guests celebrated the 110th anniversary of Constantia Teich on Saturday, October 1, 2022, in Weinburg, Pielachtal.
Vienna, October 3rd, 2022
At the open house, the company looked back on its history and gave visitors a glimpse behind the scenes of the flexible packaging manufacturer.
Where once the brothers Richard and Ernest Teich laid the foundation for today's Constantia Flexibles Group, there was a festivity over the weekend. "It was a successful celebration with guests from the surrounding area and our employees and their families," says Dr. Gerald Hummer, Managing Director of Constantia Teich. The production halls, where then as today foil is rolled and prepared for further processing in the industry, were open to 2,000 guests on Saturday. On the tracks of the aluminum raw material, it was possible to follow how the packaging for cat and dog food, coffee capsules, yogurt lids, chocolate, and pharmaceutical products are produced. Nearly 70,000 tons of aluminum foil are rolled yearly at the Weinburg site near St. Pölten. "You could wrap Vienna twice with that amount," says Gerald Hummer.

2022: Constantia Teich is growing
A reliable producer and supplier, even in times of crisis and solid employer in the region.
We are a global player with a local presence. Our most valuable asset is our employees!
Clear number 1: an employer with greatness
Constantia Teich operates the largest foil rolling mill in Austria. "We produce primary packaging, i.e., packaging that comes directly into contact with the food or pharmaceutical product," explains Gerald Hummer and continues, "the rolling mill is used to roll one billion square meters of aluminum foil every year." This makes the company the world's number one in the production of yogurt lids. And within the Constantia Flexibles Group, Constantia Teich is also among the largest plant supplying materials to its sister companies. However, the company does not limit itself to rolling aluminum. " We cover the entire value creation chain for internal production of flexible packaging materials – from the rolling and printing to final production," summarizes Gerald Hummer. Around 1,000 employees work in production, administration, and the company's own research and development center. Constantia Teich is one of the largest employers in the Pielach Valley. "We are a global player with a local presence. Our most valuable asset is our employees!" says Hummer proudly about the workforce. "Great loyalty of the employees towards the company, excellent training of the apprentices as well as the high level of know-how, are among our strengths and makes us a reliable producer and supplier, even in times of crisis. All this makes Constantia Teich a solid employer in the region," continues Dr. Gerald Hummer.
Celebrating 110 years
Outlook on the future
"An anniversary like this is not something you celebrate every day. Our employees are primarily responsible for our success. Without them, Constantia Teich would not be what it is today: an important international company. A big thank you and congratulations on the anniversary to the entire team," honors Pim Vervaat, CEO of Constantia Flexibles the valuable work of the workforce. To ensure the company remains successful, investments are being made. 34 million euros will be invested in a new coating and laminating machine, including an extension, as individual markets, such as the coffee market, are growing strongly.
