It all began on 15.06.1987 in Oberhausbergen, on the outskirts of Strasburg, with a small warehouse and an office. It was here, with a team of just three employees, that we began to sell the products we manufactured in Bruchsal on the French market.

With the introduction of DEBASAFETM products, we were able to acquire customers in France – particularly state-run companies and institutions who attached (and continue to attach!) great importance to domestic production.

This contributed to our decision in 1995 to set up a production site in France. One year later, in 1996, we moved into a renovated production hall in Hoenheim, where DEBATIN has remained to this day.

Here we invested in various machines and facilities. By the end of 1998, DEBATIN France was already employing 13 colleagues. By continuing to develop the company, we were able to acquire new customers and increase our turnover. As a result, it became necessary to further expand the machine fleet. In 2009, the company invested in a new warehouse for storing raw materials.

Thanks to the addition of new equipment, production in Hoenheim expanded in 2012 and again in 2015 to include not only mailing bags, but also leakproof medical bags and DEBASAFETM products.

We’re delighted and very proud to be celebrating 30 years of DEBATIN France this year!
