DEBATIN – innovative, sustainable and reliable

Supported by nearly 100 years of experience and the strong values and sustainability principles of our corporate philosophy, the DEBATIN Group has gained a reputation for innovation and reliability.

In 2020, DEBATIN featured on the TOP 100 list of Germany’s most innovative SMEs.

We set new standards in the industry with our tamper-evident, carbon-neutral and customised packaging and transport solutions. With production sites in Germany and France, we offer our customers premium quality products – “Made in Germany” and “Made in France”.

Thanks to our targeted, reliable and responsive approach, we consistently find the best solutions for our customers. Where necessary, we’ll work hand in hand with you to develop a customised product solution that meets your exact requirements. We are dedicated to your goals and place our expertise, experience and innovative spirit at your service.

Throughout, we are keenly aware of our responsibility. Towards our customers and partners, our employees, the environment and the future. Sustainability has played a key role at DEBATIN for many years. On all levels – ecological, economic and social.

We’re convinced that everyone can and must take responsibility for their actions. Passivity is not an option. We believe that everyone can play their part in making our future and this world a better place.

The DEBATIN vision

Hand in hand, we develop packaging for your needs – safe, sustainable and innovative.

The DEBATIN mission

To develop the best packaging solutions for all areas of life and do full justice to social,
ecological and economic aspects.

“For three generations, DEBATIN has focussed on stable customer relationships and on products that meet the highest requirements.

DEBATIN is also known for acting boldly and responsibly – bold in the sense that we strike out in new directions, and responsible in the sense that we accept responsibility for our employees, business partners and society at large.”

“Owning personal responsibility lays a foundation for efficiency, sustainability and success. We practice these values on a daily basis, combine them with a passion for our corporate group and the wish to see it thrive.”
