TROISDORF, GERMANY (July 26, 7 a.m. ET) — Reifenhäuser GmbH & Co. KG is dividing two of its business units into two independent companies, one to handle extruders and wood-plastic composites, the other for cast film.
Reifenhäuser's former Extrusion Center unit got spun off into Reifenhäuser Extrusion Technology GmbH & Co. KG. That company, led by Tim Pohl as managing director, focuses on the development of extruders and WPC lines.
The Cast Film business unit will remain with Reifenhäuser Extrusion GmbH & Co. KG, which has been renamed Reifenhauser Cast Sheet Coating GmbH & Co KG. Under Managing Director Jochen Hennes, the company concentrates on cast film lines, polishing stack systems, coating lines, dies and winders.
Both companies will continue to be located at Reifenhäuser headquarters in Troisdorf.
