Paper for Performance

Coldenhove Papier

About us

Coldenhove Papier was founded in 1661 in Eerbeek, the Netherlands. It has been an independent family business for over three centuries, and we are proud of that. It enabled us to grow into what we are today: a state-of-the-art paper mill that is known for its innovative paper solutions. Coldenhove Papier serves customers all over the world. The product portfolio ranges from traditional paper grades of high quality to patented high-tech digital sublimation transfer paper. Thanks to our focus on the development of new paper applications, Coldenhove Papier remains a leading company in the paper industry.


Coldenhove Papier is our trading name. The full name however is: W.A. Sanders Papierfabriek Coldenhove B.V. Already in 1661, the Boshoff family selected the highest location at Eerbeekse Beek (Eerbeek Brook) as construction site for their new paper mill.

Our vision

Everyone can see the world is changing. Many people are convinced paper will disappear, now the digital world has emerged. However, digitalisation offers opportunities for Coldenhove, because of our excellent technical knowledge of paper and our ability to create unique solutions for the digital world.


It’s quite a contrast: Coldenhove is a manufacturing company in the middle of a wooded area. Add to that the fact that Coldenhove works with natural products on a regular basis. Here a respectful interaction takes place. Because the very foundation of our company is based on nature, sustainability has been ingrained in our DNA for decades.
