New 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
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 GmbH & Co. KG
On July 1, 2012 Reifenhäuser EXTRUSION has been renamed in Reifenhäuser Cast Sheet Coating GmbH & Co. KG. The company focuses on the development and mcomplete cast film lines, sheet lines and extrusion coating lines as well as individual components such as dies and winders.

Since July 1st, 2005
Reifenhäuser REICOFIL GmbH & Co.
KG is an independent company
within the Reifenhäuser Group.
In view of the development into
the market leader in nonwoven
line construction, it was deemed
appropriate to adapt the
organisation and structure of
the synthetic fibre line
division to the future
requirements of the market.
Therefore, the synthetic fibre
line production area was
spun-off from Reifenhäuser GmbH
& Co. KG Maschinenfabrik on July
1, 2005 and the independent
Reifenhäuser REICOFIL GmbH & Co.
KG was established. The domicile
of the company remains
Troisdorf. Management was taken
