Röchling acquires Compotech AG

Röchling has acquired Compotech AG, a Swiss manufacturer of molded parts made from glass fiber reinforced plastic.

Compotech makes the sheet molding compound (SMC) composite parts for transport, mechanical and apparatus engineering, medical technology, electrical engineering, and sanitary applications, according to Röchling.

The company will form part of Röchling’s Industrial Division, which has production sites in Haren, Germany, Nancy, France and Cleveland, USA.

“Compotech AG is an ideal addition to our existing activities, especially for ready-to-install interior panels and ready-to-install kits for the rail vehicle industry,” said Franz Lübbers, CEO.

Markus Schwyn, Compotech AG president, said that the acquisition will ensure the continued existence of the company’s Weinfelden, Switzerland plant for employees in the long term.
