The Reifenhäuser Group, based in Troisdorf, Germany, is the world’s leading supplier of plastics extrusion lines, machines and components. The group makes up the biggest in-house know-how network for extrusion technology in the world. Its six business units, to which nine subsidiaries belong, bundle highly specific know-how in design, process technology, automation, project planning, manufacturing, project management and logistics. Each business unit specializes in the development and production of different plastics extrusion technologies. Together, the group covers the largest portfolio of extrusion technology. The companies offer lines for the production of films, sheets, nonwovens, monofilaments and the associated components.
All core components are “made by Reifenhäuser”. Development and production is found at the three German sites Troisdorf, Worms and Lampertheim. In addition, winders for monofilaments are produced in Sumirago, Italy, and screws and barrels in Troisdorf, Germany and Wichita, USA. To handle sales and keep close to customers, the company has several sales and service locations of its own and more than sixty agencies around the globe.
The more than 100-year-old company founded in 1911 by Anton Reifenhäuser as a small forge, is still owned by the family. Today, it is run by the third generation in the persons of the brothers Bernd, Klaus and UIrich Reifenhäuser as managing partners. The company has grown steadily in recent years.
The group owes its success not at least to its commitment to technological leadership and to the fact that this goal has always constantly been pursued. For this purpose, the Reifenhäuser Group has invested at its Troisdorf site over the past years in research and development to create the largest privately operated research and development center for plastics extrusion in the world. Thus, the company offers its own developers and customers ideal conditions for the development of technologies for tomorrow.
