“We would like to invite you to make a presentation for us – but unfortunately the project that this concerns is secret, and we are also not allowed to say what it is about. I am sorry, but I may also not send you an email about this.”

“This is the way the person on the other end of the telephone line formulated the verbal invitation”, remembers Christian Pröller from the Consulting & Sales branch, who took the telephone call at Rathgeber at that time.

“Basically there is nothing unusual for a mold constructor to receive an invitation for a company presentation at the start of the call for bids for a project. However, this invitation was definitely unusual.”

“But that is not the most exciting thing about the story”, continues Christian Pröller, who has already coordinated continuing work with the development department of an OEM for a few years.

The exciting thing is what finally became of this. We have never experienced such close and international team work with a process and development department of an OEM and it is still very exciting. To have a view into what is technically possible and then be able to work together on the implementation of very challenging technical developments is time and again a great challenge, but at the same time gives us great pleasure. Especially for us to be able to continue to bring into this area our decades of experience with new technologies from plastic processing into the area of custom machine construction.”
