Metal foil, such as tin foil had been around for years. The first plant designed for rolling aluminum foil was opened in 1910. Aluminum foil replaced tin foil, when the "Dr. Lauber, Neher & Cie., Emmishofen" aluminum foil rolling plant in Kreuzlingen, Switzerland, was opened by J.G. Neher & Sons. They discovered the "endless rolling process" together with Dr. Lauber. For more details, please see the sites listed below.
