The High-Performance Plastics Division is a global leader in the manufacturing and processing of thermoplastic and composite materials. More than 90 years ago, Röchling acquired its first plastics company, the todays Röchling Engineering Plastics KG in Haren/Germany. Since then, this material has been an integral part of the company’s history.
On the basis of competent advice, closeness to the market, and a clear commitment to technological progress, thermoplastic and composite materials offer a customized solution for nearly all areas of the investment goods industry. The High-Performance Plastics Division is active worldwide in various business areas.
