A label manufacturer with a family tradition

Mario Carini, Siegfried Erne - CARINI

Success through partnership

The foundations of Etiketten CARINI were laid by Mario Carini in Vienna-Penzing in 1939. Quality, reliability and integrity vis-à-vis customers, partners and staff have been cornerstones of the company from the outset. In 1945, the business relocated to the up-and-coming town of Lustenau, in the Vorarlberg region of the Rhine Valley. In 1963, Siegfried Erne joined the company, which he went on to manage until 1999.

Thomas, Andrea, Edgar Sohm - CARINI

In 1999, Siegfried Erne passed on the management role to his daughter Andrea Sohm and son-in-law Thomas Sohm along with brother Edgar Sohm. The management team was expanded by Harald Raak in 2019. Its main success factors include its comprehensive range of services, exemplary quality standard and exceptional flexibility when it comes to fulfilling special customer requirements. All this generates lasting confidence, making Etiketten CARINI one of the most renowned label printers in the German-speaking region.

Vision & mission statement

Without economics, we won’t succeed. Without humanity, we won’t survive.
As a business, we are naturally keen to achieve our economic targets. But it’s just as important to us to ensure that our partners and staff are happy. Only with satisfied, trusting customers can we stay competitive. And only with motivated staff can we continue developing innovative solutions and establishing them successfully on the market.

For coming generations: CARINI thinks ahead. As a family-run company, we feel a special commitment to the future of our children. Because of this, we ensure that social responsibility is practised by every individual on a daily basis. Our use of natural resources is governed by the principle of “avoidance before reduction before recycling before disposal”.  As a direct consequence, we always make a point of thinking through the environmental impact of new processes and products in advance. This pioneering combination of environmental protection with the ability to identify potential and save costs was also a decisive factor in CARINI’s achievement of EN ISO 14001 certification.
