Erlangen, Germany William Christensen 1948


Private


More than 20,000 Around €3.5 billion


Founded in 1948, Rehau began with one extruder, making products such as shoe welting, garden hoses and automotive components. In 1958, it extruded its first window profile – and its first magnetic gasket system for refrigerator doors. Another extrusion innovation was its first radiant floor heating system using PEX pipe.


Product lines:


The company has five divisions, which deal with windows, buildings, furniture, industrial and automotive. The first two are of most relevance to pipe and profile extruders. Within the windows division, its products include the Geneo system, which is made from fibre-reinforced material. Its Rau-Fipro X core material means that windows require no steel reinforcement. In building, Rehau produces a number of piping systems, including its Rautherm PEX product. It has been used in the turf heating systems at eight of the 12 venues for last year’s World Cup in Russia.


Factory locations:


Rehau is present at 170 locations in 54 countries and has many production plants across a range of industries. The company says that it has more than 40 production plants across the world, including many across Europe, North and South America, Africa and Asia. Within pipe and profile, these include: two plants in South Africa; one in Blaenau Ffestiniog in Wales; a plant in Manizales, in Colombia; and its Tripitis pipe plant in eastern Germany, which is being expanded.
