In 1966, Ernst Kaindl, an Austrian entrepreneur, founded the SWISS KRONO Group in Switzerland, more precisely in Menznau near Lucerne. Since then, the company has been growing continuously and constantly expanding its portfolio. More than 30 years ago, the plant in France was launched. Additional works were opened in Germany, Poland and the US.
The SWISS KRONO Group has become one of the world’s leading manufacturers of wood-based materials within just a few years. We are not only opening up new markets, but also constantly developing new products. The success is based not least on the fact that each plant can benefit from the knowledge and expertise of the other production sites. Always customer-oriented, the Group closes gaps in its product range and offers products of the highest quality and best availability around the world. Today, customers in over 121 countries benefit from the Group’s high-quality and wide range of products.
International expertise in wooden structures
In the interests of our customers, we offer all products of the wood-based materials industry from a single source – from wood products for interiors to products for wooden structures and high-quality laminates. For a large number of products, we complete all stages of production ourselves. That allows us to deliver our wood-based products to the very highest quality standards – any time, any place. And each one of our approximately 5,100 members of staff, across 10 factories worldwide, is personally committed to ensuring this is the case.

The Group supplies specialist dealers competently and reliably with ecological wood-based materials. Processing companies, planners and end users are provided with comprehensive information and advice on the processing and properties of our products. The SWISS KRONO Group wants to grow – without loss of quality. That is why the company is continuously optimising not only our product range, but of course also all production and business processes, both technically and ecologically. And this is not just the Group’s claim; its performance is checked continuously and confirmed in regular inspections by independent institutes.
