History - 125 Years Ideas – From a humble plaster factory to an in ternationally renowned visual media manufacturer

Today, Neschen Coating GmbH is renowned worldwide as an experienced manufacturer of self-adhesive films and printable media. However, 125 years ago, the company began manufacturing of India rubber plasters and wound dressings. It was the apothecary Georg König who in 1889 with the foundation of a special factory for pharmaceutical preparations established the beginning of the international renowned company from Bückeburg. Initially on the first floor of the Court Pharmacy in the heart of the city, then later in a multistory factory extension medical plasters, ointments and elastic capsules were produced that would later become famous.

Only after the Second World War, in the face of an increasing competitive plaster market, were the first self-adhesive films for book protection produced. A new era started when industrialist Hans Neschen joined the company that later would bear his name. He joined a paralyzed company suffering from the aftermath of the Second World War and, following successful experiments with synthetic resin films, converted the company’s product portfolio. Thus followed the change from "Bückeburger Hühneraugenpflaster” (Bückeburg corn plaster) to "Bückeburger Buchhaut” (Bückeburg book cover).

Quickly the films proved themselves and were sold by the millions at home and abroad. Foreign subsidiaries and participation at trade shows supported the expansion of the company. Soon it had to leave its location in the city of Bückeburg and between 1965 and 1989 foundation stones for two factories were laid that still exist today. In addition to self-adhesive films for book protection the company engaged specifically in the development of transfer adhesives and films for the finishing of photographs, processing machines for in house production methods and transportable presentation systems. The next years would see many more innovative Neschen products manufactured at the company headquarters in the former residential city of Bückeburg – there, where 125 years ago it all began.
