Roth Plastic Technology invests in new service building


Roth Plastic Technology opened a new service building. The specialist in plastics processing is on a path of growth and is making further investments in its Wolfgruben site. Only one year ago, the manufacturer opened up a new logistics centre, expanded infrastructure and purchased more injection moulding machines.

The business and sales management of Roth Plastic Technology, Mayor Bernd Schmidt, general contractor Christmann + Pfeifer and the Roth corporate family gathered together to inaugurate the new office building in December 2017. Employees were able to move into their offices in the new building in as early as November. Sebastian Hermann, member of Roth Plastic Technology’s Managing Board, commented: “The new building offers a presentable reception for our customers and business partners. We have cutting-edge conference rooms, ergonomic office furnishings and a forward-looking office concept that supports short lines of communication.” The Managing Board, sales, controlling, tool management, development and construction and project management departments are located on this complex. Additional parking spaces for employees and visitors have also been made. The entrance, conference rooms and visitor toilets have all been designed with accessibility in mind and can be used by people in wheelchairs.

Dynamic development
Last year, Roth Plastic Technology reported a sales increase of more than 10 per cent compared with the previous year. The workforce grew to some 175 employees. Dr Anne-Kathrin Roth, Managing Director of Roth Industries, commented: “Our high level of expertise in plastics processing is a result of our decade-long experience and growing know-how. Innovative methods of processing plastic and excellent product quality are key for loyal customer partnerships and they also lend themselves well to positive developments in the future. We are delighted that our new building has created the ideal conditions for our business activities.”
Working as a full service supplier, Roth uses injection moulding processes at Wolfgruben to produce plastic components and supplies well-known customers, including in the automotive and home appliance sectors. Roth Plastic Technology also provides companies within the Roth Group with plastic products for building services technology. The range of services offered by the company covers every stage of the production cycle, from developing components in collaboration with customers to manufacturing and finishing complex assemblies.

Showpiece for Roth product systems
The new office building is fitted according to the latest energy guidelines. To do so, the company takes full advantage of the synergies within its own organisation and incorporates system solutions for building services technology from Roth Werke’s range of products. From energy generation using air/water heat pumps and energy storage with the innovative plastic heat storage tank, Thermotank Quadroline, right through to floor heating and cooling systems and pipe installation systems for drinking water supply – we used all of our own products. The Roth cooling ceiling keeps employees cool in the summer. Roth’s Touchline radio control system provides individual room control. With its heating and cooling methods, the building’s technology offers maximum user comfort. The new building also represents a showpiece: display cabinets in the building’s structure showcase the use of Roth’s products which, for one thing, showcase the company’s expertise with regard to plastic. For example, it offers an insight into the underfloor heating system with five layers of plastic system pipes that Roth manufatures at its Buchenau site. You can also see the Tacker clips that hold the pipes together and the fittings – the plastic connecting elements made from polyphenylsulphone (PPSU) for the pipe systems. Roth Plastic Technology manufactures these products in Wolfgruben.
