Troisdorf, Germany — Reifenhäuser Group merged its business units Reifenhäuser Blown Film and Reifenhäuser Blown Film Polyrema to consolidate competencies and cope with growth in the sector.
The move forms a joint brand going forward as Reifenhäuser Blown Film.
For now, the change is mainly organizational to give the new business unit more leverage to develop technologies for standard and special machine tool manufacturing.
However, on July 1, 2022, the change will be incorporated in the company's statutes.
"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," Reifenhäuser Group CEO Bernd Reifenhäuser said in a news release.
"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," Reifenhäuser added.
The managing directors of the merged business unit are Andreas Neuss and Marcel Perrevort, who both have several years of experience in executive positions in the blown-film segment of the Reifenhäuser Group.
The group supplies systems and components to produce blown films, cast films, sheets and nonwovens.
