Gmund has been family-owned since 1904, when it was taken over by Ludwig Alois Kohler, almost a hundred years after the mill began to produce paper in 1829. Poised along the Mangfall River, up to 75% of the mill's energy is generated through this powerful water source allowing them to boast "water-produced paper". Currently, Gmund is operated by Kohler's great-great-nephew Florian Kohler, who superbly keeps one of the oldest running paper mills in the world not only up to date, but producing only the finest quality paper.
It's easy to say that Gmund's technique combines the best of the old with the new; one machine has been running since 1883, the other since 1979, both completely modernized and their technology consistently current and state of the art. According to Gmund: "Cosmetics, perfumes from around the world, alcoholic beverages, the finest chocolates, ecological mueslis, tea and many other products are packed into papers from Gmund." Amongst the many roles Gmund paper plays around the world, it has also been the choice for invitations to the Cannes Film Festival and Hollywood's Academy Awards ceremony; when the envelope it torn open to reveal an Oscar winner, there's an excellent chance it's on Gmund paper.
Gmund is not only committed to investing in energy efficient and environmentally conscious production, but also makes contributions to preserve their stunning shore of Lake Tegernsee.
