Mönchengladbach/Ditzingen, 30/5/2016 As a development and production partner of the real estate and waste management industries, municipalities and cemetery operators, Paul Wolff GmbH has specialized in innovative waste collection systems, protection cabinets, and cemetery systems for over 60 years.

"Long-standing and faithful customer relationships are the basis of our business," Dr. Hanns Menzel, CEO of Paul Wolff, emphasizes. "Our customers especially appreciate that our solutions for cleanliness, order, and security are characterized by their high quality and durability." The independent family business has also developed products especially for use outdoors that can withstand the weather and environmental influences for many years, and which protect resources and combine functionality with ease of use and an attractive design.

As a traditional business, Paul Wolff combines many years of experience with a culture of continuous improvement. With its high-powered development team, this family company persistently drives innovation in its various business fields. And thus they are a midsized market leader in container cabinets, and they offer systems for the above and underground collection of waste and recyclable materials. The system’s concrete and steel construction reliably protects the garbage containers from environmental influences, vermin, and dirt. Thanks to their classic and modern design varieties they fit seamlessly into the architecture of their surroundings – or if desired they disappear completely underground. Their low deposit height and barrier-free access ensure comfort for all users.

Paul Wolff GmbH has developed robust protection and depot cabinets especially for the safe outdoor storage of sensitive and valuable technology or packages. Intelligent closing systems allow authorized users easy and uncomplicated access to the containers.
