Reifenhäuser achieves new sales record

Reifenhäuser, a seven-subsidiary global extrusion lines provider closed the 2011/2012 financial year with record results, generating total sales of over EUR 450 million.

Comprising of Reifenhäuser Extrusion, Reifenhäuser Kiefel Extrusion, Reifenhäuser Reicofil, Reiloy Metall, Reimotec Maschinen- und Anlagenbau, and Polyrema , the group's sales signalled an improved record result compared to the previous financial year.

All business areas of the Reifenhäuser group could report a two-digit growth, despite the still slack markets, especially in Europe. This success was mainly due to a significantly increasing demand for extrusion machinery from Asia and South America.

The Reifenhäuser group is planning further growth for the new financial year.

Ulrich Reifenhäuser, board member of Reifenhäuser, explains: “After a rather weak spring, we are experiencing now a clear revival of the market. we can still see great potential in the BRICS countries – not least because of a growing hygiene market in these regions.“
