Corporate structure for Reifenhäuser


The course for an optimal positioning of the tradition-rich family company in the globalized marketplaces was set in 2004 with the transformation into a family holding company. This step allowed its customers to benefit from direct dialogue, an absolutely market- and product-oriented research and development and from the comprehensive RQS quality service.

The next step was taken in mid-2005 when the
GS / synthetic fibre (spunbond) division was transferred into Reifenhäuser REICOFIL GmbH & Co. KG. Then, on July 1, 2006, the activities of all film divisions were pooled in the newly established Reifenhäuser EXTRUSION GmbH & Co. KG. It comprises the former blown film, thermoforming sheet, cast film / laminating and component product areas as well as customer service and central production.

As a further logical step, Worms-based Kiefel, a leading company in the blown film area, was taken over and incorporated into the holding structure in August 2009. Parallel to this, the blown film activities of Reifenhäuser EXTRUSION were pooled in the new subsidiary Reifenhäuser KIEFEL Extrusion. Thus, the Reifenhäuser Extrusioneers have clearly set the course to growth and leadership also in this market segment.

On July 1, 2012 the two business units of Reifenhäuser Extrusion GmbH & Co. KG have been split up in two companies in order to meet the requirements of the business areas that are different in many respects. The ormer business area Extrusion Center has been spun off into the new company Reifenhäuser Extrusion Technology GmbH & Co. KG, which focuses on the development and manufacture of extruders and WPC lines. The business area Cast Film remained within the Reifenhäuser Extrusion GmbH & Co. KG which, however, has been renamed in Reifenhäuser Cast Sheet Coating GmbH & Co. KG.

Reifenhäuser GmbH & Co. KG headed by Bernd, Klaus and Ulrich Reifenhäuser, has taken over the strategic governance and alignment of the complete group of companies.

Within this structure the holding company is able to support the developments of the individual companies in the most effective way and use the synergies existing within the group to the maximum benefit of its customers.

Reifenhäuser Cast Sheet Coating develop and manufacture complete cast film lines, sheet lines and extrusion coating lines as well as individual components such as dies and winders. Since all of these units use similar technology, we can transfer our experience and innovations from one process to the other. The result of this transference: multiple good solutions for our customers.
