Heroldsberg, Germany, October 2016.

Turnover rose by more than 100 million to 706.7 million euros, a year-on-year increase of 18 per cent. For the first time, all three subgroups contributed to the overall result with strong growth. The company has consistently diversified in its areas of business and is represented worldwide by sites in 22 countries.

  • Subsidised by the municipality of Heroldsberg

Heroldsberg, 15 April 2016 – On Friday, the Schwan-STABILO Group celebrated the grand opening of the new premises at their headquarters in the Franconian town of Heroldsberg. But there was no office or factory atmosphere apparent. Instead, there were heaps of coloring instruments and toys, cuddly blankets, low seating and even a metre-high swan, as well as a slide and nest swing outside. An unusual event for the international company? Definitely. Because Schwan-STABILO has opened its first company crèche, ColorLand, in cooperation with external operator “Kinderhaus Nürnberg gGmbH” and is only the second company in the region to do so.

«Cosmetics made in Franconia»: Schwan Cosmetics went on air in the Franken Show from February 21st. A camera crew filmed a whole day “behind the scenes” in Heroldsberg... and was astonished.
