Troisdorf, June 27, 2016 | Setting The New Standards – this is the Reifenhäuser Group’s motto at K 2016 in October. It is a clear statement from the world’s leading manufacturer of plastics extrusion lines and components: “We are Setting The New Standards beyond the current state of the art,” said CEO Bernd Reifenhäuser at the K 2016 preview in Düsseldorf. “Rethinking is our fundamental strategy. Setting The New Standards is our goal. Rethinking grants permanent innovation. If Rethinking is successful, its outcome sets new standards. Yes – and we are successful.”
At K 2013, Reifenhäuser’s motto was “Rethinking Technology”. Since then, this approach has been embraced by the company group and has established itself as the corporate philosophy: “We question all of our solutions. We constantly look for new progressive approaches and like to think outside the box in order to develop genuine innovations,” explained Bernd Reifenhäuser. This not only creates developments, but progress, and therefore New Standards – for a distinct competitive advantage in the production of high-quality blown films, polishing sheets, cast films, monofilaments, strapping tapes and nonwovens.
Setting The New Standards stands for the highest technological demands, competence and technological leadership. Reifenhäuser offers the advantages of a competence lead and innovative technologies: “At the world’s most important forum for the plastics industry, we demonstrate that we will go the extra mile in terms of extrusion,” stated Managing Director Ulrich Reifenhäuser. “We present to our customers new performance across the entire technological portfolio and improvements in the line details – in an industry continuing to exhibit enormous innovative potential.”
At the K fair, the company will unveil innovations which have the potential to be real chart toppers. Bernd Reifenhäuser: “We have matured our technologies even further. Reifenhäuser is pushing the limits with its new technology highlights and innovative solutions.” The Extrusioneers are Setting The New Standards.
