Acquisition of air cooling ring specialist


As of April 2021, the machinery and components manufacturer Reifenhäuser GmbH & Co. KG Maschinenfabrik, Troisdorf/Germany, has acquired a majority stake in Kdesign GmbH, Königswinter/Germany, a global leader in the manufacture of air cooling rings and measuring systems for blown film extrusion lines. With this purchase Reifenhäuser Group, a specialist in extrusion technologies, expands its in-house expertise in cooling, controlling, measuring and calibrating blown films.

Kdesign remains an independent company within the Reifenhäuser Group and its business and customer relationships will continue unchanged. Joachim Lange and Richard Zimmermann continue to head the company as managing directors.
As a member of the Group, Kdesign now has access to a large international service network and one of the largest privately run research and development center for plastics extrusion.
