Bunzl & Biach#
Bunzl & Biach, internationally known family-owned group of textile, paper and pulp mills. In 1854 Moritz Bunzl opened a shop for fancy goods. In 1883 his son Max transferred the headquarters of the company from Pressburg/Bratislava to Vienna and thus laid the foundations of the internationally renowned company. In 1888 he bought up the Ortmann paper mill, a few years later the Wattens paper mill and the Lenzing pulp and paper mill. In 1936 the Austrian company was transformed into a public limited company (Aktiengesellschaft) and merged with the plants in England and Switzerland into the Bunzl group with headquarters in Switzerland. Whereas the Austrian branches underwent Aryanization under Nazi rule, other branches were set up in the United States and South Africa; returned to their rightful owners after World War II. The plants were gradually sold off between 1969 and 1980 and a single trading company was left in Austria.
