Kautex Maschinenbau/Rikutec: Cooperation
Effective August 1, 2010, Kautex Maschinenbau GmbH, Bonn, Germany, takes over international sales and service for Rikutec Richter Kunststofftechnik GmbH & Co. KG, Altenkirchen, Germany, equipment. Both companies manufacture blow molding machines, but cater to different segments of the blow molding industry. They collaborated already on several projects in the past. „Through our focused partnering in Service and Sales, blow molding machine buyers will benefit in the future from a single source supply of a wider range of equipment solutions and service capabilities“, explained Andreas Lichtenauer, managing director of Kautex Maschinenbau. “The intended cooperation is not a joint venture. Both companies will remain separate corporate entities“. “With Rikutec’s multilayer accumulator heads, Kautex Maschinenbau GmbH will expand its product portfolio and service business in the area of large industrial packaging applications“, added Rikutec Managing Director, Bodo Richter. “In return we will participate in Kautex’ global sales and service network.“
