Press Releases

Troisdorf/Worms, January 2015 | Effective January 1st, 2015, Reifenhäuser Kiefel Extrusion, the leading manufacturer of blown film extrusion lines has changed its name to Reifenhäuser Blown Film. Since 2009, the company belongs to the Troisdorf/North Rhine-Westphalia-based Reifenhäuser Group that underlines again the full integration of the company acquired in 2009 in the Group by changing its name. At the same time, the change in name marks the strategic expansion of the Business Unit Blown Film that clearly enhances the Worms site, safeguards jobs and supports further growth.

Reifenhäuser is investing over two million euro in the Worms site to further expand the in-house manufacture of know-how components. New machining centers and a new 3D measuring machine were bought and installed in new buildings. “These investments enable us to further optimize the material flow, expand capacities, and sustainably ensure the quality for demands in the future“, says Bernd Reifenhäuser, CEO of the Reifenhäuser Group. “The changes not only mean a further step forward for the Worms site, but for the complete Reifenhäuser Group: We are advancing the strengths of the Group in a purposeful way, and are networking even more closely to position our products and services on the
global marketplaces in the most targeted manner.“

CEO of Reifenhäuser Blown Film is Dr. Fritz Dorner. Already on 01.10.2014, he had assumed this position from Bernd Reifenhäuser who will now concentrate again on his role as CEO of Reifenhäuser Group. Graduated plastics engineer Dorner (51) holds a diploma in business administration and a doctorate at the faculty for mechanical enginering of RWTH Aachen university. In the past, he held various leading positions in the field of international machine construction. With his comprehensive experience he will consistently continue to pursue the course of growth of Reifenhäuser Blown Film. He can start this task with a full order book.

With the change of the company name, Reifenhäuser Blown Film has been consistently integrated in the brand architecture of the Reifenhäuser Group: All members of the group carry the product name or Reifenhäuser in the first line. Effective January 2015, the area of specialization is indicated in the sub-line for all companies carrying Reifenhäuser in the first line.
