Our product may not seem thrilling but suddenly you find yourself in the beautiful, marvelous world of bag closures.

Our story started in 1957 when Joannes Schutte from Amsterdam noticed the increasing use of plastic bread bags. He developed the aluminum Aluclip, which proved to be a hole in the market. Nowadays the bakery and bread segment is still our main market segment. Like Joannes Schutte in his days, our people realize what the packaging market needs by listening carefully to our customers, followed by playing with our products. After all there is always room for improvement. That is why we are the market leader in Europe.

Number 1
The staff at our headquarters in Uden consists of forty people. In 2012 subsidiary companies were established in the United States of America and Germany and in 2014 in Italy and France. Schutte bagclosures is a healthy, financially stable and profitable company. We are a real close team and our products are not very vulnerable to economic trends. As a niche player we just keep on playing. We want to become the number 1 of the world.

We do more than just develop and produce. Schutte is aware of its social responsibilities and supports local, national and international good causes. Furthermore we are continually working on the internal processes concerning safety and health. We also think about the future of our planet: Schutte bagclosures produces recyclable closures and has the experience and knowledge to replace plastic by bioplastics.

Own brands
To increase the brand recognition of Schutte we have put two own brands on the market: Clipps® and XtraGrip®. Schutte and these brands must become well-known names. Not just in Europe, but in the whole world. The world is our playground and we keep on playing.
