1992<br />The pioneering years

The pioneering years

Eurobrillance history starts in July 1992 when, unhappy with the lack of high-end paper finishing providers in the market and with a wealth of knowledge as a printer and inks specialist behind him, René Laufer founds his own company. Starting with one laminator and three co-workers, Eurobrillance is recognized from the beginning as a leader in high-quality paper finishing in the Alsace (France) region.

1993<br />From local to regional

From local to regional

Eurobrillance acquires the Nancy-based company Pelliculest, thus extending its lamination activities beyond the Alsace region and doubling the size of the company. From there, Eurobrillance is close to its markets in the Champagne and Luxembourg region.

1994-1998<br />Diversification


In order to extend the range and quality of its services, Eurobrillance expands by acquiring a new state-of-the-art lamination line, a coating line, an SPS screen printing machine and a hot foil press. Eurobrillance rapidly gains an excellent reputation for its mastery of this wide range of finishing techniques.

1999-2002<br />Ahead of the market

Ahead of the market

Technical innovations take place at a rapid pace. In 1999, Eurobrillance becomes the first company in France offering solvent-free lamination.

2006 - 2010<br />To Altorf and beyond

2006 - 2010
To Altorf and beyond

Eurobrillance occupies its new site of 2000 sq m in Altorf, with enough room to expand the existing equipment with an additional laminator, an extra coating line and a second screen printing machine. In 2007 a Roto laminator is installed, providing enough lamination capacity for Eurobrillance to capture the European market. Further expansion of the site enables a second Roto lamination line to be commissioned in 2016.

2017<br />Acquisition by Hermes

Acquisition by Hermes

A group of investors, headed by SA Chateau de Steinbach, acquires Eurobrillance, strengthening the operational and commercial management of the company for further international expansion.

2019 - 2020 Innovations and transitions in next generation technologies

Eurobrillance strikes once again with the realization of the world’s first complexes with ultra-thin 4.5µ barrier films. This 100% made in France innovation allows Eurobrillance to establish itself definitively in the food packaging market, not only in the field of finishing, but also in terms of functionality. This disruptive innovation lays the foundation for future expansion.

The presence of Eurobrillance in the food market will be marked very quickly by innovation in a market in search of new materials meeting new standards and directives. It is therefore early 2020 that the Skinpack market will launch a new material that will break with household compostability.
Eurobrillance will also use its know-how to launch a second breakthrough and citizen innovation. This is how the first germ blocker film was urgently born with the same visual as the films usually used in the design of cases.

Launch of an online estimator and a DEEB ( sales site for specific Eco-designed solutions.
Eurobrilllance is launching a new version of industrial finishing with direct finishing, in other words the possibility for all players in France and neighboring countries to have Eurobrillance services with E-commerce standards.

It is also the opportunity for Eurobrillance to be the first to offer a permanent stock of compostable metallized cardboard from a pallet. Eurobrillance is convinced that this is the only way for these solutions to be democratized and accessible to everyone through all printers, even the smallest.
