We profit from over 80 years of experience in complex metal processing and are daily expanding our expertise in the area of high-tech application technology. These decades of experience and the extensive technical knowledge of our employees and our processes form the basis of our success. The history of our family company extends over three generations all the way back to 1939.



Johann Rathgeber founded his own company and became self-employed as a machine manufacturer. Prior to this he was a technician at the University of Innsbruck.


Rathgeber recognized the successful entry of plastics in the consumer goods industry and developed sophisticated technologies for injection molds.


Founder Johann Rathgeber gradually passed on the company to his son, Peter.


Kai Konstantin Stoffel takes over the company from his father-in-law. A targeted focus on the core competencies of the company resulted.

We have established ourselves on the international market through the continuous development of innovative technologies for increasing quality and efficiency. Our highly motivated team, made up of around 100 employees, designs and produces in the areas of Mold Construction and System Engineering as well as Automation Technology at the highest level.
