Reifenhäuser consolidates its construction competencies in blown film lines

With effect from July 1, the Reifenhäuser Group is merging its blown-film business units Reifenhäuser Blown Film and Reifenhäuser Blown Film Polyrema, which have so far operated independently, in order to cope with ongoing growth in this sector. This move consolidates the Group’s competencies even more than before to form a joint brand, Reifenhäuser Blown Film.

 

Initially the change is purely organizational and will give the new business unit more leverage in developing new technologies for standard and special machine tool manufacturing. The change will be incorporated in the company’s statutes as of next year on July 1, 2022.

 

Bernd Reifenhäuser, CEO of the Reifenhäuser Group, said: "We have exciting tasks to solve, especially when it comes to the digitalization of blown-film production and the resource-conserving use of plastics in keeping with the concept of a circular economy. Jointly, we can then speed up developments in this direction without the delay of internal barriers - and this will also bring our customers enormous benefits".

 

The joint managing directors of the merged business unit Reifenhäuser Blown Film are Andreas Neuss and Marcel Perrevort. Both have several years of experience in executive positions in the blown-film business segment of the Reifenhäuser Group.
