Our story - from the box to the kitchen.

Our company can look back on an impressive history. As the name KISTAG suggests, it all began in 1939 with the construction of simple wooden crates. Only a short time later, however, new products that were in demand locally were already being manufactured.

Through constant modernisation and investment, we have grown to become one of Switzerland's leading partners in the field of customised, innovative and intelligent wooden packaging systems as well as sophisticated and creative interior solutions. Our innovative spirit knows no bounds and our claim is and remains that only high-quality products deliver measurable added value to our customers, which qualifies us as a partner.
