Competence for thermoforming products invigorated


Haren – The Röchling Engineering Plastics Group is taking over the Southern German plastic processor MAYWO Kunststoff GmbH in Bad Grönenbach-Thal effective 1st September 2012.

MAYWO Kunststoff GmbH, which with 85 on the workforce generates a turnover of about euro 27 mill., manufactures single and multi-layer plastic sheets and films made of the materials acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) and polystyrene (PS) by extrusion for the thermoforming industry. Customers then fabricate from these semi-finished products vacuum formed parts that are used, for example, in the electronic industry, machinery construction, special vehicle construction, sports equipment and garden tool construction as well as aviation.

Inclusion in the division Röchling High-Performance Plastics offers MAYWO Kunststoff GmbH excellent perspectives in terms of the further development of materials and technologies, of the extension of the product range and the increased internationalisation of the sales markets. Furthermore, Röchling is planning on continuing to expand operations at the Bad Grönenbach-Thal location.

Ludger Bartels, COO of the Röchling Group, Mannheim, is convinced: "With this strategic acquisition, we are strengthening our product range of semi-finished products made of thermoplastics for applications in thermoforming technology“. This field has been represented hitherto by the Swedish subsidiary company Röchling Formaterm and Röchling Rimito Plast, Finland, in Scandinavia within the division High-Performance Plastics.

Two managers will be in charge of MAYWO Kunststoff GmbH in future: Assisting the General Manager of long-years' standing Wolfgang Baumgärtner is Florian Helmich, who up till now was responsible as General Manager for Press Moulding at Röchling Engineering Plastics KG in Haren.
