Röltgen – Quality that makes its mark!
Under this motto, we have been producing marking tools and machines as well as tablet presses for the most demanding customers in the world for over 80 years.
Founded in 1941 by Mr. Paul Röltgen, our company started with the production of hand stamps in any design. Röltgen quickly became known as a high-quality supplier to the manufacturers of steel goods in Solingen. Of course, this did not go unnoticed and soon Paul Röltgen was supplying his goods to many well-known companies all over Germany and then all over the world.
With the arrival of the second generation, daughter Gabriele and son-in-law Siegfried Baehr, and the construction of the company’s own building in Solingen Merscheid, the product range was quickly expanded and the clientele increased. In addition to hand stamps and embossing tools, the first marking machines were traded and then also designed, built and sold themselves.
In 1983, the company entered into a partnership with Edward Pryor Ltd. from Sheffield and was the first to offer computer-controlled dot marking machines on the German market. This made it possible for the first time to programme an individual marking on the computer and to embosse it on almost any material. In the 2000s, laser marking was added.
Now the third generation is “at the helm”: Mr. Frank Baehr joined the company in 1995 and Mr. Marc Baehr in 1997. Since 2007, they have been the managing directors of Röltgen GmbH & Co. KG and are very proud of their 41 employees, many of whom they trained themselves.
Production takes place exclusively in Germany. Röltgen attaches great importance to qualified vocational training of the apprentices in the company (approx. 10% of the workforce) and to regular further training of the mostly long-serving employees in their own ranks. In order to promote young talent before and during training, we work closely with schools and universities.
Röltgen marking systems are used in the automotive, aerospace, steel and mechanical engineering industries as well as in modern packaging machines in the pharmaceutical, food and cosmetics industries. In addition to the extensive standard range, approx. 80% of production is special and custom-made.
It is also no coincidence that the entire production is geared towards sustainability and the responsible use of the environment and resources. Röltgen already led the way 30 years ago with an efficient purification plant for the electroplating waste water. In addition, a 30,000-litre rainwater collection system has been installed for the process water in the plant and a photovoltaic system of approx. 700 m2 has been installed for a modern machine park that also stands up to ecological considerations.
We look forward to a great partnership with you.
