With this take-over, Reifenhäuser remains faithful to its strategy: To ensure its long-term success, the Troisdorf company strives for technological leadership through in-house developments and the acquisition of know-how in market-relevant technologies. "This take-over perfectly complements our existing expertise in die production," emphasizes Uwe Gaedike. With the die specialist EDS, Reifenhäuser takes a great stride towards its goal of always delivering the best extrusion process. When it comes to die production, EDS stands for tailor-made products.
"With the latest acquisition we continue to move towards our goal of designing and producing core competencies in-house. Besides machine manufacture, we are positioning ourselves as a leading technological component provider for extruders and dies," says Gaedike about Reifenhäuser's strategy. With the new unit, the design know-how for die and film tools will be strengthened significantly
