Frerichs Holzwerk was founded in September 1995, when Herke Frerichs started with 2 co workers in a small warehouse close to Emden to deliver crates for the automotive industry.
From the starting point the company has grown – so actually Frerichs is developing and producing its crates, packaging components and pallets at a facility of more than 4.000 m².

Frerichs employs more than 50 employees – who develop customized packaging solutions based on wooden boxes. Depending on the customer specification dryed or heat treated wood is used – all according to IPPS ISPM 15 standard.
