Record investment level Bischof Klein modernises and extends its production facilities

This year, Bischof + Klein will invest the record sum of around 31 million euros. Some 20 million euros will be pumped into B+K Lengerich and Konzell alone. The full-service supplier of flexible plastic and paper packaging and technical films, whose headquarters are located in Westphalia’s Lengerich, therefore remains set on its modernisation and expansion course.

“This is the right time to invest”, states managing director Dr. Volker Pfennig. Even in 2012, in the midst of the euro crisis, Bischof + Klein succeeded in asserting its position as one of Europe’s leading full-service suppliers of flexible plastic and technical films. 2013 will focus on extending the extrusion facilities in the German plants and on continued expansion of the company’s Polish plant. Sustainability projects concerning energy and resource efficiency are also of major importance. Pfennig:

“We will continue to work creatively and consistently on this.”

Exhibitor stands not only bore witness to some lively business discussions but also numerous deals. Good visitor resonance strengthened the position of the leading trade fair for plastic and rubber technology in Russia and the entire CIS region. 20,000 business visitors attended the interplastica 2013 and the UPAKOVKA/UPAK ITALIA trade fair for packaging technology being held at the same time.

After talking to exhibitors from different product areas, the Chairman and CEO of Messe Düsseldorf GmbH, Werner M. Dornscheidt, was overall satisfied: “The Russian market has clearly revived; exhibitors are talking about very real negotiations and deals. Some visitors had a long way to come to experience the new technologies from international and Russian suppliers up close at the event. The very positive outcome of the interplastica gives us reason to look forward to the K 2013 in Düsseldorf this October with confidence!”

2012 – A Year Characterized by Continuing Growth into New Markets

2012 war für Reifenhäuser Kiefel Extrusion ein weiteres erfolgreiches Jahr mit stetiger Expansion in neue Märkte und Anwendungsgebiete dank fortlaufender technischer Entwicklung und kontinuierlich verbessertem Service.

Das neue technologieführende Hochleistungskühlsystem EVOLUTION ULTRA COOL erlebte einen phänomenalen Erfolg bei sämtlichen installierten Anlagen und ist der Maßstab, an dem alle Wettbewerbersysteme im Markt gemessen werden.

Phantastische Zustimmung fand auch das neue Abzugssystem EVOLUTION ULTRAFLAT zur Verbesserung der Folienplanlage und damit Erhöhung der Verarbeitungsgeschwindigkeit   für eine Vielzahl von Anwendungen.

3-Schicht-Anlagen für breiteste Anwendungsgebiete sind nach wie vor unser Kerngeschäft, jedoch haben wir das größte Wachstum in diesem Jahr mit 7- und insbesondere mit 9-Schicht-Anlagen für anspruchsvollste Hochbarriereanwendungen erzielt.

Dank unserer Technologie, unserem Support vor Ort und der stetigen Erweiterung unseres Vertretungsnetzes dehnen wir unsere Präsenz in neuen Regionen rund um die Welt ständig aus.

Für uns ist dies eine Bestätigung dafür, dass Reifenhäuser Kiefel Extrusion als Teil der Reifenhäuser Gruppe – „The Extrusioneers“ – in den Augen unserer neuen und bestehenden Kunden der bevorzugte Lieferant für eine immer größere Anzahl von Folienproduzenten weltweit ist.

Wir bedanken uns, dass Sie dazu beigetragen haben, 2012 zu einem erfolgreichen Jahr für Reifenhäuser Kiefel Extrusion zu machen, und freuen uns auf die Herausforderungen und Möglichkeiten des Jahres 2013, insbesondere darauf, Sie während der K2013 auf dem Stand der Reifenhäuser Gruppe begrüßen zu dürfen.
