Obituary for Professor Dr. Wolfgang Wächter


Preservation of books, archives and historical documents

We are a Leipzig company, founded in 2003. In addition to the traditional craftsmanship of our restorers and bookbinders, our commitment is, for example, the economic deacidification of large stocks with the in-house PAL Book Saver® process. Since the company was founded, we have been promoting the further development of this process together with national and international experts. The top priority is always to combine the care of manual work with the economic efficiency of the bulk technology.

Written cultural assets on paper

Libraries, archives and museums are not only suffering from the collapse of their holdings, but also from a lack of staff and financial constraints. In order to prevent losses among paper cultural assets, you need a knowledgeable partner who takes responsibility and also keeps an eye on costs. With their expertise in the important fields of mass deacidification of pulp-containing papers, stabilizing severely damaged sheets and restoring book covers, we offer tailor-made solutions from a single source for every need. 
In addition, we offer every conceivable support and all logistical measures relating to inventory maintenance. The craftsmanship of traditionally working restorers and the most modern expert knowledge, as well as the latest scientific and technological possibilities, mesh efficiently.
