Management Board

Who We Are

SAPP Management AG was founded in 2004 by Dr. Karl Heinz Haller and Karl Mayer as a strategic partner for the international pulp and paper industry. While initially working with employees on a contract basis, in 2013, the Board of Management decided to count primarily on in-house-employees to keep the steadily growing expertise within the company. This gave us the resources to put a stronger focus on ares of special demands on the market, in particular the development of mills and the assessment of boilers and turbines.

In 2016, we implemented our Quality Management division and were certified according to EN ISO 9001:2015. One year later, in 2017, we introduced our newest service - Smart Data Analytics - which already proved to be of essential importance for the future of companies in the pulp and paper industry.
