Kronospan was established in 1897 in Lungötz, Austria, as a family business. Today, Kronospan has developed a supply chain with over 40 production sites and 16 distribution centres in 30 countries, and more than 16,000 workers around the world.
The company’s second factory was opened in 1959 in Salzburg in Austria and its first overseas operation was established in the UK in 1972 in the former coal mining town of Chirk, North Wales. This manufacturing unit is now one of the top 10 manufacturing companies in Wales and employs more than 600 people, with 90% of the workforce living within a 10-mile radius of the site.
In the forty years following the opening of the Chirk unit Kronospan has established operations in 28 further countries, including at Sandebeck in Germany. With the collapse of the Iron Curtain in the late 1980s, Kronospan recognised expansion opportunities within the new markets of Central and South-eastern Europe, opening several units in Poland, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic and the former East Germany. This expansion continued in the early 2000s with new plants in Central Europe in Slovakia, Romania, Croatia and Hungary and than also in Eastern Europe in Ukraine and Russia. In 2000 Kronospan opened its first factories in Asia, and its first outside Europe, at Danyang in China, and in 2005 it established its first unit in America at Oxford, Alabama. More recently, the company has expanded its operations into Southern and Western Europe with new factories in France, Spain and Denmark, as well as acquiring a new plant manufacturing flooring in the US. Since 2015 Kronospan has focused less on opening new factories, preferring to improve the economic and environmental performance of established sites.
With so many different Kronospan product ranges, we (Cover-Caps UK) have decided to focus on the Kronospan United Kingdom (UK) Range specifically for the UK market.
