Who we are:

Schattdecor (pronounced shot-dcor) is the global market-leader in the printed decorative paper industry. Images of wood, stone, solid-color or fantasy designs are printed on large rolls of paper and then sold to the furniture industry. They cover it with a laminate and attach it to a hard surface to be used in kitchen cabinets, counter tops, closet systems and laminate flooring (think IKEA). The clean, modern St. Louis plant is spacious, yet with only about 60 employees, it has a caring, teamwork atmosphere. Our production facility is located in Maryland Heights, Missouri. We are just west of Dave and Busters, near the intersection of I-70 and I-270.
