Our story started in 1870
We are one of the oldest cardboard manufacturers in Europe. The foundations of Solidus can be traced back to the North of the Netherlands in the mid-19th century. At the time, the primary industry in the area was agriculture, specifically grain farming. A waste product of the grain industry is straw, which was used to make cardboard.
This all changed by the late 20th century when the raw material for producing cardboard switched from straw to recovered paper. This significantly impacted market dynamics and revolutionised the cardboard industry. The abundance of local producers suddenly became a few global players.
With future-focused production technology and market development, the Solidus Group continues to spread its wings. Supported by a targeted acquisition strategy, together with long-term customers and partners, the company establishes clear value propositions for a cleaner world with less waste.
