New name puts customers at the centre
Xanten – After the takeover by the Röchling Group, the plastics processor Schwartz GmbH Technical Plastics will be known by a new name: Röchling Industrial Xanten GmbH. The company was taken over at the end of 2018. With the change of the name, Röchling is consistently continuing the integration of the new subsidiary into the international group.
The new name, Röchling Industrial Xanten GmbH, illustrates the company’s affiliation to the Röchling Group, and above all, highlights the strategy of the Industrial Division which is incorporating the Xanten-based plastics processor. The Industrial Division processes thermoplastics and composites for almost every industry worldwide. The new company name consistently focuses on the industries and thus on customers.
Franz Lübbers, Member of the Management Board of the Röchling Group and responsible for the Industrial division, states: “Through our division, we want to offer the optimum material for every industry and every application. With the products and technologies of Röchling Industrial Xanten, we can extend the offer and our service to our customers. At the same time, Röchling Industrial Xanten benefits from being part of our international group of companies.”
Industrial competencies reinforced
Through the new technologies, Röchling Industrial is reinforcing its competence in conveying and lifting technology, oil and gas, intralogistics and elevator construction industries. The Xanten-based plastics processor specialises in the production of cast polyamide, and in particular, offers large volume and heavy-duty ready-made engineering plastic parts to virtually any industry. Over 240 employees are currently employed at four sites in Germany, the Czech Republic, China and the USA.
Competence centre for moulded cast
Within the Industrial division, Röchling Industrial Xanten will be the competence centre for moulded cast in the future. To this end, Röchling will invest a larger six-digit sum in the modern machine and plant park at the new location this year. Lübbers explains: “We want to further expand our manufacturing capabilities and further improve services to our customers. So this location will be an even more effective partner.”
Acquisition positively received by the market
The takeover was very positively received by the market. Heinz Dirksen, Business Unit Director Sales & Marketing Machined Components at Röchling, and CEO of Röchling Industrial Xanten, explains: “The quick and simple integration of the company and close cooperation allow us to use a lot of synergies, and we have already acquired our first new customers. As part of this corporate network, Röchling Industrial Xanten GmbH can offer its customers a very extensive range of machining possibilities.”
