Battenfeld and Cincinnati to Become battenfeld-cincinnati
Effective this 9 April 2010, Battenfeld Extrusionstechnik GmbH, Bad Oeynhausen, Germany, Cincinnati Extrusion GmbH, Vienna, Austria, and B+C Extrusion Systems (Foshan) Ltd, Foshan, China, formally operating as independent entities, have now combined their strengths under the new brand of battenfeld-cincinnati. Together with American Maplan Corporation, also a member of the group, they form the largest global supplier of extrusion lines for the production of pipes, profiles, film and sheet, with manufacturing plants on three continents.
The new divisional structure will favor targeted orientation towards meeting customers‘ needs for specific solutions. In each division, the competencies of all predecessor brands have been pooled, so that from now on our customers will have the expert knowledge from a total of some 120 years of experience in the extrusion industry at their disposal.
The Construction Division headed by Rainer Kottmeier will take care of all customers requiring solutions to manufacture visible extrusion products for the public and private sectors, such as profiles, PVC sheet, but also WPC, decking, fencing, siding and railing. Walter Häder will be responsible for the Infrastructure Division with immediate effect. He and his team will be the contact partners for all questions concerning transport and distribution of water, gas and telecommunication data in plastic pipes. Dr. Henning Stieglitz will be in charge of the new Packaging Division specializing in extrusion solutions for the packaging industry (such as thermoforming film for food packaging) as well as PVC granulators and PVC processing solutions. An outstanding international production company will emerge from the coordination of battenfeld-cincinnati’s five production sites on three continents. Together with a number of additional sales subsidiaries and agencies, this will result in an all-encompassing network with global service and closeness to customers worldwide.
