Klingele - corrugated box Ondunova Group (Grupondunova) is a leading producer of corrugated packaging in the Catalonia region of Spain. The company has facilities in Santa Margarida i Els Monjos, Torrelavit and Les Preses.

Nov. 12, 2018 - The Klingele Group on Nov. 8 announced that it has acquired all of the shares of the Gomā family in the Spanish Ondunova Group, a manufacturer of corrugated packaging in the Catalonia region in northeastern Spain. Klingele explained that it has been a part of the Ondunova since the early 1970s, and now has assumed full ownership.

“After decades of constructive collaboration with the Gomā family, we will now continue with the successful growth of the Ondunova Group solely under the Klingele flag,” said Dr. Jan Klingele, Managing Partner of the Klingele Group. “Especially in the economically strong region of Catalonia, we see excellent opportunities for the future.”

The Ondunova Group was founded in 1957 and has a corrugated cardboard plant in Santa Margarida i els Monjos in the Barcelona region (Catalonia province). With approximately 100 employees in Ondunova and 20 in Wondu, the company produces packaging and displays made of corrugated cardboard.

According to Klingele, in 2016, Ondunova established its own business unit for digital printing of small volume series. Since then, Ondunova has been selling individually designed packaging solutions in high-quality printing under the WONDU brand. The flexibility of the printing and the digital cutting technology enables the design of corrugated board products for seasonal campaigns even in small quantities.
