Overview of the largest Plastics Processors in Germany

Our directory of the German plastics processing industry

This is our list of the largest German plastics processors. For us, plastics processors are all companies that manufacture items made of plastic. In this data set e.g. we do not list machine builders, since plastic parts make up only a small part of the machines manufactured. Plastics can be synthetic, i.e. obtained from mineral oil, or semi-synthetic. The largest German plastics processor is Adolf Würth GmbH & Co. KG, which is known for manufacturing anything from tools made with plastic casings to manufacturing equipment like dowels.

1) Adolf Würth GmbH & Co. KG, Künzelsau: 14.4 billion euros in sales

The Würth Group is a conglomerate that covers numerous business fields. The focus is on the wholesale of fastening and assembly technology. However, the Group also owns “manufacturing” companies and subgroups which are active in plastics processing, for example, the pipe system manufacturer IVT.

Business is divided into the Seals/Vibration Control Technology, Technical Textiles/Filtration, Cleaning Technologies/Products and Specialties Divisions.

3) Röchling SE & Co. KG, Mannheim: 2.4 billion euros sales

Röchling’s history began with coal and steel, and in the meantime it was also a conglomerate. Since the 1980s, Röchling has become a plastics processor. Today, with more than 11,000 employees, Röchling produces plastic parts for industry and supplies plastic components for automotive construction and medical technology.

Update 2023: In 2023, the topics of sustainability and climate neutrality will continue to play a major role for Röchling. This applies both to the expansion of the product range and to the design of production processes. Decisive steps in this direction have recently been taken in various areas of the Company.

Lead-generation made easy: Valuable data on Germany’s top-selling plastics processors presented in an easy-to-understand data set

Many lead-generation databases often have outdated data and do not incorporate all relevant companies. Another benefit of our data sets is the clear, clean presentation as an Excel file. Industry overviews in pdf format are practical for certain purposes, but can neither be imported into a CRM system nor edited according to your needs. In addition, there is detailed information in our industry lists, which allows uncomplicated sorting and filtering according to your needs.
