On 2 December 2015, the Osnabrück-based specialty paper manufacturer and the French paper manufacturer received a special award from the Franco-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry (AHK) in Paris in recognition of their fruitful collaboration.
The aim of the collaboration between the two companies has been to jointly develop papers for high-end photo prints. Canson’s very high grade fine art base papers are coated with the Felix Schoeller Group‘s innovative coatings. The combination produces top-quality substrates for high-end photographs.
“The collaboration with our highly competent partner Canson is creating new solutions again and again. Our mutual exchange of ideas is creating a powerful innovative force that constantly produces new products for new applications,” says Guido Hofmeyer, Felix Schoeller Group’s Executive Vice President, describing the fruitful collaboration between the companies. “Canson and Schoeller are both companies with a long tradition, they both use the very latest technology and they share a delight in and passion for our products. This creates products that are unparalleled anywhere in the world. We and our French partners complement each other perfectly,” continues Hofmeyer.
“We were looking for a partner to enable us to make the best possible use of technological progress,” says Philippe Souquet, Canson’s CEO, speaking of what prompted the collaboration. “The Felix Schoeller Group has become that partner.” Canson’s collaboration with the Osnabrück-based manufacturer of high-end specialty papers has produced the Canson Infinity range of papers for digital and art photography, which is now on sale in over 50 countries.
