Röchling’s New Production Hall Will Help Further Growth


Franz Lübbers, member of the management board and CEO Röchling Industrial, ceremoniously opened Röchling Sustaplast SE & Co. KG’s new production hall together with Peter Labonte, mayor of Lahnstein, and Mustafa Altintas, director of production and engineering business unit thermoplastics.

Röchling Sustaplast SE & Co. KG has expanded its existing production hall at the Lahnstein location by more than 3000 square metres of hall space and other production facilities. With an investment of R78.3 million (5 million euros), the company is continuing the consistently strong growth of the previous years and is strengthening its position as a processor of high-performance plastics. With the new capacities, customers will benefit from shorter delivery times and even better service.

In his speech, Lübbers highlighted the following, ‘With the investment, Röchling is demonstrating the great trust in the further successful development of Röchling Sustaplast. The expansion continues our clearly formulated growth strategy. The expansion of the production capacities allows us to react even better to our customers’ wishes and deliver faster.’

‘Since 2010, Röchling in Lahnstein has invested R626.6 million (40 million euros) into the development of the location,’ explained Altintas. The modern machinery and plant has been continuously developed, a new logistics centre has been opened and the existing hall space in production and logistics has been continuously expanded.

In his welcoming address, Mayor Labonte emphasised that the investment will strengthen Lahnstein as an attractive business location, ‘I am delighted that Röchling Sustaplast has been investing in the location here for many years and thus sets a conscious example for our region and in particular to Lahnstein.’

A significant contribution to the growth of Röchling Sustaplast SE & Co. KG are the more than 320 employees and 21 apprentices who are being trained in six different careers. Lübbers gave his thanks for the great commitment. ‘Such strong growth is only possible with a strong team. The enormous commitment over recent years and the expertise of all employees is critical for our success.’
