Laufenberg is currently building a new raw materials hall – just in time for the company's 75th anniversary.

75 years ago – in 1947 – the family business was founded as a manufacturer of roofing felt. Shortly afterwards, the company specialised in the production of siliconized release liners.

Today, Laufenberg stands for high-quality solutions based on silicone-coated films and papers as well as special products. More than 250 employees work on production and further development. In Krefeld Hüls, an ultra-modern factory with machinery of the highest standard has gradually been built.

Start of construction for new raw materials hall

In order to be able to generate further growth, a new raw materials hall is currently being built on the site of the former Plant 1. The commissioning of the new building is planned for the 2nd quarter of 2023.

Since the former Laufenberg KG moved from Straelen to Krefeld Hüls in 1956, additional plots of land have been continuously acquired, new plants, equipment and raw material halls have been built and existing buildings have been extended. In this way, an ultra-modern factory was gradually built on the now approx. 38 000m2 site.

The demolition of the old buildings and the preparatory ground work have already been completed. The foundations for the new hall are currently being built. The actual hall construction will begin in November 2022. With the new hall, Laufenberg will create capacity for the paper warehouse on an area of over 2000m2. The rolls will be transported to neighbouring plants for further processing via a new bridge with an integrated lift.
