A traditional family company with sights fixed on the trends of tomorrow
At RATHGEBER, innovation and tradition are inextricably linked. In Andrea and Andreas Schrägle, the company has now been handed down to its third generation of owners. Their passion for their work, humanity, sound business acumen and technical expertise all form
the basis of the success of the RATHGEBER Group. With a tried-and-tested team of more than 325 employees at the company’s headquarters in Oberhaching and at its production sites in Mindelheim and Bystrice nad Pernštejnem (Czech Republic) behind RATHGEBER’s products, personal interaction between management and employees is an essential part of the company’s day-to-day business. RATHGEBER is family-friendly through and through, supporting its employees through individual, personalised and flexible solutions which can be vital in moments when childcare gets tricky, for example.
RATHGEBER is dedicated to protecting the environment. The company’s environmental management system has been certified under DIN EN ISO 14001:2015 for many years, and RATHGEBER is also the first climate-neutral company in the industry. Unavoidable emissions resulting from production processes, sales activities and administration are made climate-neutral by the voluntary purchase of official CO2 certificates.
RATHGEBER has been offering its customers exclusively climate-neutral products since 2011, including all materials used. RATHGEBER has signed up to the ‘Industry for the environment’ initiative and supports hydroelectric power projects in Guatemala and Indonesia. The company is also an active member of the ‘Munich for climate protection’ club. Furthermore, RATHGEBER is a member of the United Nations’ ‘Global Compact’ project.
Premium quality products
RATHGEBER is certified under the DIN EN ISO 9001:2015 quality standard. RATHGEBER’s comprehensive product range supports companies in a vast array of fields.
Take branding, for example: a strong brand helps companies to stand out from the competition. It communicates values and emotions and can inspire consumers to develop an affinity with a certain product. These brand messages are made instantly visually recognisable through high-quality lettering, logos and emblems on the product and packaging. They add that special something right at the point of sale, giving customers that all-important incentive to buy.
RATHGEBER’s product portfolio also includes functional parts such as control panel films, technical markings such as warning signs, guarantee seals, type plates and RFID or NFC tags, for example for logistics or access control. Not only do the technically sophisticated solutions for surface-finished and multidimensional markings meet the highest design requirements, they can also be equipped with useful product protection functions.
