Our origins
Our origins
Kautex Maschinenbau has its roots in the boldness, joy of discovery and enthusiasm for technology that were demonstrated by our founder Reinold Hagen and his brothers. In the 1930s they believed in the future of plastic and invented and developed machines specifically designed to process this material. Their determination and genuine humanity shaped the first forty years of our company's history. From these beginnings the company grew into a leading international engineering company, especially during the more than 20 years that the business was part of the Krupp group. Many outstanding specialists from our former competitor, Johann Fischer, joined the company in 2004 and with their know-how and experience they have become highly regarded members of the team.

Today, the company’s private owners and the Kautex management team are working to ensure that it has the dynamics of a medium-sized business without losing the close working relationship that it enjoys with its customers. Today more than ever before, our employees are a part of this entrepreneurial spirit. The knowledge and ability of each individual employee, combined with their belief in the possibilities of technology and their willingness to work as a team, continue to be the driving force behind our success. Kautex staff have always been motivated by a desire to do the very best for our customers, who are the key to our future success. Every day, we endeavor to turn our customers’ challenges into our challenges.
