The foundation stone for today’s RKW Group was laid 56 years ago in Frankenthal, near Worms. Today, this family-owned company, with 20 locations around the world, is one of the leading European manufacturers of plastic films and nonwovens.
The company is constantly developing tailored solutions and optimising existing concepts. RKW’s activities are divided into five global business areas: hygiene and medical; technical films; consumer and industrial packaging; agricultural films and nets and construction films. RKW products set benchmarks in a wide range of applications. As nonwovens and films in baby diapers, they offer perfect protection, as breathable roofing underlays, they ensure optimum building ventilation, and as extremely elastic stretchhoods, they offer efficient protection of palletized goods during transport.
At the heart of this success are around 3,000 employees, who are committed to the company and their individual challenges. They are constantly working on innovative solutions and offering customers excellent service. Their motivation, experience and expertise have made RKW what it is today: a dynamic, internationally active company with ambitious expansion plans.
