Mannheim (Germany), October 17, 2007 – At K 2007, the largest worldwide trade show for plastics and rubber, all of the divisions of the Röchling Group will appear together for the first time. “We have successfully transformed ourselves into a pure plastics processor over the last several years and established Röchling as a brand. Röchling stands for proficiency in plastics. This development is of course also reflected in a joint corporate image”, explained Georg Duffner, President and CEO of the Röchling Group.
The 17th International Trade Show for Plastics + Rubber will transform the Düsseldorf Trade Fair Center into the mecca of the worldwide plastics industry from October 24-31, 2007. Under the logo “Proficiency in Plastics”, the Röchling Group will display exhibits of thermoplastic and composite semi-finished products and finished components, high-performance plastics, innovative plastic components for the automotive industry and the smallest injection molding components, among other things.
