Quality is the central value of the company ROTHENBERGER.

Commitment to Quality

Quality has always been the central value of the Rothenberger company. Quality is our highest mission. We always pursue it, because it is our core promise to Rothenberger customers — a promise we keep.

In-house research and development

Rothenberger is committed to in-house research and development. Our R&D rate is significantly above the industry norm. More than 180 patents and trademarks attest to the high quality of our products. At TEC Centres in Kelkheim, Germany, and Abadiano, Spain, as well as at other international sites, our engineers research and develop new, improved solutions for any pipe-related work.

In-house production rate of more than 60%

One important quality guarantee is the high in-house production rate, which is currently above 60%. Our company-internal production comes from five international plants, including those in Kelkheim, Germany, and Abadiano, Spain.

Continuous improvement process

At Rothenberger, the obligation to continuous improvement in the quality of processes, production and products is firmly anchored in the corporate culture. This is seen, for example, in the Rothenberger Operational Excellence Program, which tests and directs goals using internal and external benchmarks, based on standard improvement methodology.

Continuous improvement of service standards

Our quality shows in our customer service. Around the world, Rothenberger has a network of more than 150 certified service facilities. Standards for service equipment, continuous training of service personnel, up-to-date documentation and optimal stocking of replacement parts ensure that every Rothenberger customer everywhere receives the best possible service. Great value is placed on short process times, so that customers get their products fast. This means that our delivery performance for replacement parts is over 98%.
