Operating as RTP Deutschland GmbH, the German operation will produce a wide range of products in a 5600 m2 facility. The Ladenburg plant also houses on-site product development engineers as well as a quality assurance laboratory.

RTP Company's other European manufacturing plant is in Beaune, France.

"The benefits that opening this new facility will provide include expanded product lines for Europe in key growth areas of RTP Company's wide portfolio of custom compounds, shortened lead times and increased customer confidence in RTP Company as a primary supplier by having two European operations," explains John Onken, Chief of Staff at RTP Company.

With the establishment of its Ladenburg, Germany, facility, RTP Company, which is headquartered in Winona, Minnesota, USA now has 11 manufacturing sites worldwide.
