Roth Composite Machinery celebrates double anniversary of the original companies: 100 years of experience and expertise

Roth Composite Machinery emerged from the merger of three long-established companies from northern and central Hesse and combines their expertise: Since 1963, research and development has been carried out in the field of filament winding technology at the former company Bolenz & Schäfer in Biedenkopf-Eckelshausen. “An absolute future technology in which we are a globally recognised and sought-after player thanks to our decades of expertise,” said Managing Director Dr Andreas Reimann.

While Bolenz & Schäfer was driving expertise in filament winding, in the hinterland the company EHA in Steffenberg was involved in special coating technologies. EHA was founded in 1983 and became part of the Roth Industries Group in 1995. Bolenz & Schäfer had already become part of the Roth Group in 1989 and, like EHA, initially continued to operate under its own name. In 1999, Bolenz & Schäfer’s filament winding special machinery business was transferred to EHA. In 2016, EHA and the Burgwald-based company Schlesinger were merged and renamed “Roth Composite Machinery”. Since then, under the motto “Your Performance – made by Roth”, Roth Composite Machinery has stood for machine concepts that are individually adapted to customer needs worldwide and are characterised by a high degree of specialisation and exceptional quality.

 “Today we are celebrating the double anniversary of two significant roots of our company Roth Composite Machinery,” explained the CEO of the Roth Industries Group, Matthias Donges, in his welcoming speech at the opening of the anniversary celebrations, “We want to take these impressive figures as an opportunity to provide an insight into the company and current projects and to pay tribute to our joint, successful development.” The employees of all three locations with their families, former employees and the Roth family of shareholders were therefore invited to the celebration.

Managing Director Dr Reimann thanked the employees: “Without your daily commitment, your curiosity, your inventiveness and your diligence, our joint success would be unthinkable.”

The musical accompaniment was provided by the Roth Band, which is made up of musicians from all the different Roth companies. They had put together a foray of well-known pieces from rock and pop history for the anniversary.
