Fischer GmbH Kunststoff Präzision is now Röchling Industrial Laupheim GmbH
Laupheim, 17th January 2018 – Following the take-over of the Laupheim-based plastics processing company Fischer GmbH Kunststoff Präzision by the Röchling Group, the company now trades under a new name: Röchling Industrial Laupheim GmbH. The Röchling Group took over the plastics processing company last year. With the renaminig, Röchling is consistently continuing the integration of the subsidiary into the international group.
The new name, “Röchling Industrial Laupheim GmbH”, illustrates the company’s affiliation to the Röchling Group and, above all, highlights the marketing strategy of the Industrial Division which incorporates the plastics processor from Laupheim. The Industrial Division processes thermoplastics and composites for nearly every industry in the world. The new company name consistently focuses on the industries and thus on customers.
Heinz Dirksen, Business Unit Director Sales & Marketing Machined Components at Röchling, explains: “Almost all of the industries in the world use our plastics. In our Division, our goal is to offer optimal materials for all industries, all applications and all customers. In direct discussions with our customers, we develop new possibilities and create added value.”
Röchling Industrial Laupheim GmbH is a leader in the machining of precision plastic parts and components made from technical plastics as well as high-performance plastics for customers in a host of industries. More than 150 employees are currently employed at two sites which have modern CNC machines and other machining centres for machining plastics: Laupheim, located to the south of Ulm, and Arnstadt near Erfurt.
When the Röchling Group took it over, the company was given an unique chance to open up new sales markets and benefit from the Group’s expertise in materials and applications. The 19 closely networked machining sites in the Industrial Division are global leaders in machining thermoplastics and composites. They specialise in producing high-quality finished parts and components for nearly every industry. Heinz Dirksen emphasises: “As part of this corporate network, Röchling Industrial Laupheim GmbH can offer its customers a very extensive range of machining possibilities.” Röchling can offer milling parts with a length of up to 14,000 mm, a diameter of 4,000 mm and weight of up to 5 tons, or large turning parts with a diameter of 2,000 mm. However, the product range also features micro-machining of small components with a diameter of only 0.5 mm.
New customers acquired
Ansgar Robbe, Managing Director Commercial of Röchling Industrial Laupheim GmbH, emphasizes the positive development: “The market had a very positive reception of the takeover. The quick and simple integration of the company and close cooperation let us use a lot of synergies, and we have already acquired new customers. As part of the Röchling Group, we can offer our customers new possibilities in plastics processing and even better service.”
First and foremost, the company wants to use these new possibilities to continue systematically expanding its market position in its target industries: medical, control, sensor and fluid technology. Its growth strategy also includes millions in investments in the company’s core competence: producing high-precision turned parts. Rudolf Karremann, Managing Director Production & Engineering of Röchling Industrial Laupheim GmbH, explains, “We are going to continue expanding the modern machinery and equipment for producing high-precision CNC and turned parts in Laupheim and Arnstadt. With this investment, we are going to further extend the production possibilities we can offer our customers.”
