Company registered under the name of Corint Europe by Mr. Wieger Wiegersma.
In 1993, Wieger Wiegersma founded the basis for Axxor, which now has manufacturing facilities across multiple continents and supplies paper honeycomb around the world.
Trained as a mechanical engineer and with a background in the paper honeycomb industry, Wieger and his team saw large opportunities for improvement in traditional honeycomb making processes. The 3-step batch process used at the time was not very precise and could not produce core in a continuous fashion. They designed a new type of paper honeycomb core machine, which they called Single Step Core (“SSC”) that boasted lower waste, higher precision, and a functionally endless end product. This led to new applications and high demand for the product, requiring additional capacity very quickly.
Now, 25+ years later, Axxor continues to expand, serving a variety of industries and employing more than 160 people. We still leverage the same craftsmanship and technological innovation that Wieger and his team displayed in the beginning to drive creative, sustainable, and low cost solutions.
