Reifenhäuser Kiefel Extrusion has changed its name to Reifenhäuser Blown Film. Since 2009, the company belongs to the Troisdorf/North Rhine-Westphalia-based Reifenhäuser Group. The change in name also marks the strategic expansion of its blown film unit at the Worms site in Germany.
Reifenhäuser is investing more than two million euro ($2.36 million) in the Worms site to further expand its in-house manufacture of know-how components. New machining centers and a new 3D measuring machine were bought and installed in new buildings. "These investments enable us to further optimize the material flow, expand capacities, and sustainably ensure the quality for demands in the future," said Bernd Reifenhäuser, CEO of the Reifenhäuser Group. "The changes not only mean a further step forward for the Worms site, but for the complete Reifenhäuser Group. We are advancing the strengths of the group in a purposeful way, and are networking even more closely to position our products and services on the global marketplaces in the most targeted manner."
