Roth Kunststofftechnik becomes Roth Plastic Technology


Change is afoot for Roth Kunststofftechnik. The specialist in plastics processing has been operating under Roth Plastic Technology since June, reinforcing its international focus. The manufacturer belongs to the family-owned company Roth Industries that has around 1,200 employees around the world.

As part of restructuring measures, Roth Industries is bringing together related business areas in its two fields of building and industrial technology, condensing its professional expertise into six divisions. In doing so, the family-owned company is transforming from a group of companies with various portfolios into a homogenous unit with one consistent brand image. Now all the companies operating independently in the market bear the Roth company name and logo. The Roth brand is the face of the family-owned company, providing it with a global identity. Roth Plastic Technology represents the plastics division of Roth Industries. The company specialises in plastics processing using injection moulding and blow moulding processes for moulded parts and containers.

As Roth Plastic Technology Plant Manager Herbert Blodig explains: “From our site in Wolfgruben, we control the development, manufacture and marketing of customer-specific plastics systems. With our core competencies in the plastics processing techniques of injection moulding and blow moulding, we can take advantage of the Roth Group’s various production sites in Germany and abroad in order to make this possible.

The range of services offered in injection moulding processes covers everything from developing components in collaboration with customers to manufacturing and finishing complex assemblies. Alongside well-known international companies, including several in the automotive and domestic appliance industries, Roth Plastic Technology also supplies other divisions of the family company with plastic goods.

ISO/TS 16949 certification strengthens market position
Roth Plastic Technology is ISO/TS 16949 certified. The company has been meeting the highest standards of quality in the automotive industry at its site in Wolfgruben since June 2011. This enables Roth Plastic Technology to keep up with the growing use of plastic injection-moulded parts in vehicles and with continually growing customer requirements.

The standard ISO/TS 16949 combines various requirements placed on the quality management systems belonging to car manufacturers and their suppliers. Its initiators include companies such as BMW, Chrysler, Daimler, Fiat, Ford, General Motors, PSA, Renault and Volkswagen. The aim of the standard is to improve system and process quality in order to recognise errors and risks in the production process and supplier chain and eliminate their causes.
