POLYRACK Gruppe mit zweistelligem Umsatzwachstum in 2018 - weitere Investitionen geplant.

Straubenhardt, 15. Mai 2019 - Die POLYRACK TECH-GROUP feiert in diesem Jahr ihr 40-jähriges Jubiläum. In dieser Zeit hat sich die Unternehmensgruppe zum global agierenden Familienunternehmen entwickelt. Auch im Geschäftsjahr 2018 verzeichnete die POLYRACK Gruppe ein starkes Umsatzwachstum. Hierfür hat das Unternehmen seine Technologiebereiche stark ausgebaut, auch 2019 und in den folgenden Jahren sind zahlreiche Investitionen geplant.

Seit der Gründung 1979 hat sich die POLYRACK Gruppe vom Ein-Mann-Betrieb zu einem global agierenden Familienunternehmen entwickelt. Über die Jahrzehnte kamen immer wieder neue Technologien, Märkte und Know-how hinzu. So hat sich POLYRACK auf Basis des Standardgeschäftes zum technologieübergreifenden Systemlieferanten gewandelt. Das Portfolio umfasst heute das Engineering mit tiefgreifendem Technologie-Know-how in den Bereichen Mechanik, Kunststofftechnik, Systemtechnik und Oberflächentechnik. Hinzu kommt ein breites Standardportfolio sowie Services in den Bereichen Logistik und Sourcing.

Aktuell beschäftigt die POLYRACK Gruppe über 450 Mitarbeiter an mehreren Standorten im Raum Straubenhardt und Ettlingen (Baden-Württemberg) sowie in den USA, China, Schweiz und Belgien.

„Ich bin stolz darauf, dass wir trotz unseres Wachstums ein Familienunternehmen mit klaren Strukturen geblieben sind, das mit Maß und Verantwortung die Unternehmensgeschicke lenkt und dies auch in der nächsten Generation so fortführen wird“, erklärt der noch aktive Unternehmensgründer und Inhaber der POLYRACK Gruppe Horst Rapp. „Als Unternehmer haben wir in erster Linie Verantwortung für unsere Kunden und unsere Mitarbeiter. Diese Verantwortung wollen wir als Inhaberfamilie auch die nächsten 40 Jahre übernehmen und unseren Geschäftspartnern und Mitarbeitern ein verlässlicher Partner sein.“

„Das Unternehmen ist heute sehr breit aufgestellt und wir sind in vielen Branchen und Märkten vertreten. Dies gibt uns Stabilität und unseren Kunden die nötige Verlässlichkeit“, ergänzt der geschäftsführende Gesellschafter Andreas Rapp. Erfolgreiches Geschäftsjahr 2018 Die POLYRACK Gruppe blickt auf ein erfolgreiches Geschäftsjahr 2018 zurück: Das Unternehmen konnte seinen Umsatz in 2018 um ca. 10% steigern und erreichte einen summierten Umsatz von ca. 70 Millionen Euro (nicht konsolidiert). Auch im Auftragseingang und Auftragsbestand konnte die Firmengruppe erneut im zweistelligen Prozentbereich zulegen. „Sowohl mit Bestandskunden, vor allem aber auch mit Neukunden und Neuprojekten, konnten wir die Firmengruppe nachhaltig weiterentwickeln. So erwarten wir auch 2019 ein Wachstum in dieser Größenordnung“, erklärt Andreas Rapp.

Wachstumsbranchen sind vor allem die Medizintechnik, Mess- und Regelungstechnik, Broadcasting, Maschinen- und Anlagenbau sowie die Verkehrsleittechnik, Bahntechnik sowie Luft- und Raumfahrt. Auch das Standard- bzw. modifizierte Standardgeschäft in den Bereichen 19“ und Embedded Computing hat POLYRACK konsequent marktspezifisch ausgebaut.

Mit zahlreichen Investitionen weiter auf Wachstumskurs

2018 hat POLYRACK den ESD-Bereich in der Montage modernisiert und neu aufgestellt, um seine Kunden beim In-House-Engineering in Zusammenarbeit mit den Kunden noch besser unterstützen zu können.

Auch für die nächsten Jahre plant POLYRACK umfangreiche Investitionen, allen voran die Erweiterung des Werkes in Ettlingen, nahe Karlsruhe. Mit einem Anbau von rund 1300m2 erweitert das Unternehmen hier seine Blechfertigung und Logistik. Zudem wird der Maschinenpark bis 2020 sukzessive ausgebaut und erneuert. Bis 2021 beläuft sich das Investitionsvolumen der POLYRACK Gruppe auf rund fünf bis sechs Millionen Euro, dies umfasst alle Technologiebereiche: Stanz- und Lasertechnik, Biegen, Schweißen, Fräsen, die Kunststoff- und Oberflächentechnik sowie den weiteren Ausbau der Qualitätssicherung und der Messtechnik.

In der Systemtechnik hat POLYRACK umfangreiche Projekterfahrung gesammelt und detailliertes Know-how aufgebaut, vor allem im Bereich des „Open VPX“-Standards. „Der Systembereich wird in Zukunft eine noch wichtigere Rolle spielen, so dass wir diesen weiter ausbauen und in die Entwicklung und das Fertigungs-Know-how investieren“, erläutert Andreas Rapp. „Für dieses und kommendes Jahr sehen wir vor allem in den Bereichen Embedded Computing und Displaytechnik eine wachsende Zahl an Projektumsetzungen.“

Um die Ziele der nächsten Jahre zu erreichen, stockt POLYRACK zudem seinen Mitarbeiterstamm auf und investiert in die Ausbildung von Mitarbeitern.

„Mit diesen Investitionen sehen wir die Unternehmensgruppe gut aufgestellt, um die anstehenden Kundenprojekte zu realisieren und Raum für zukünftiges Wachstum mit unseren Kunden zu haben“, so Andreas Rapp.

Qualität im Fokus

Verschiedene Unternehmen der POLYRACK Gruppe haben kürzlich erfolgreich die Re-Zertifizierung für die DIN EN ISO 9001(2015) und der IATF durchlaufen. Im Laufe des Jahres 2020 soll die Zertifizierung nach DIN EN 9100 - Luft und Raumfahrt – abgeschlossen sein. „Hiermit zeigen wir auch diesem Kundenkreis, dass wir Höchstleistungen in Bezug auf Technologie und Qualität bieten können“, so Andreas Rapp.

Stärkung des Binnenmarktes und weitere Internationalisierung

Der deutsche Markt hat 2018 zu einem hohen Anteil zum Umsatzwachstum beigetragen, hier ergeben sich für die POLYRACK Gruppe auch weiterhin attraktive Wachstumschancen. Für weiteres Wachstumspotential bleiben die internationalen Märkte im Fokus, allen voran die europäischen Länder sowie die USA und Kanada. Aktuell liegt der Exportanteil der POLYRACK Gruppe bei ca. 50%. „Unser Ziel ist eine positive Umsatzentwicklung. Dies wollen wir aber mit dem nötigen Augenmaß und unternehmerischen Weitblick tun“, erklärt Andreas Rapp.

Today, its portfolio encompasses engineering with extensive technology know-how in the fields of mechanical and plastics technology, system technology and surface technology. In addition, it offers a wide standard portfolio as well as logistics and sourcing services.

The POLYRACK Group currently has more than 450 employees at various sites in the Straubenhardt / Ettlingen area (Baden Württemberg) and in the US, China, Switzerland and Belgium. "I am proud of the fact that despite our growth we have remained a family-run company with clear structures that steers the destiny of the company with moderation and responsibility and will pursue this in the next generation as well", declares Horst Rapp, company founder and owner of the POLYRACK Group, who is still active today. "As entrepreneurs, we are responsible first and foremost for our customers and for our employees.

Successful Fiscal Year 2018

The POLYRACK Group looks back on a successful fiscal year 2018: In 2018, the company was able to increase its sales by around 10% and achieved total sales of around 70 million Euros (not consolidated). Once again, the company group showed a double-digit percentage increase in incoming orders and order backlog. "We were able to sustainably develop the company group not only with our existing customers but also and above all with new customers and new projects. In 2019 we anticipate growth in about the same amount", explains Andreas Rapp.

The main growth sectors are medical engineering, measurement and control technology, broadcasting, machinery and plant engineering, traffic-control systems, railway technology and aerospace. POLYRACK has also systematically expanded its standard and modified standard business in the fields of 19" and embedded computing to fit specific markets.

Numerous Investments for Continuing Growth Track

In 2018 POLYRACK modernized and reorganized the ESD area in assembly in order to be able to support its customers with in-house engineering in collaboration with its customers.

In the coming years too, POLYRACK plans extensive investments, first and foremost by expanding the factory in Ettlingen, near Karlsruhe. Here the company will expand its sheet metal production and logistics with a building extension of around 1300 m2. In addition, the machinery will be successively upgraded and replaced by 2020. By 2021, the investment volume of the POLYRACK Group will amount to five to six million Euros, embracing all technology areas: punch and laser technology, bending, welding, milling, plastics and surface technology as well as further development of quality assurance and measurement engineering.

POLYRACK has built up extensive project experience and detailed know-how in systems technology, above all in the field of "open VPX" standards. "In future, the systems sector will play an even more important role, so we want to expand this further and invest in R&D and manufacturing know-how", Andreas Rapp explains. "For this year and the coming year, we see an increasing number of project implementations above all in the areas of embedded computing and display technology.”

In order to achieve its objectives in the coming years, POLYRACK is also ramping up its workforce and investing in employee development.

"With these investments, we consider the company group well prepared for accomplishing the upcoming customer projects and it has scope for future growth with our customers", according to Andreas Rapp.

Focus on Quality

Various companies within the POLYRACK Group have recently been successfully re-certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 9001(2015) and IATF. Certification to DIN EN 9100 - aerospace – will be completed during the course of 2020. "With this, we want to show this target group too that we can offer top performance in technology and quality", says Andreas Rapp.

Strong Domestic Market and Further Internationalization

In 2018, it was the German market that largely contributed to the sales growth: here there are still attractive growth opportunities for the POLYRACK Group. For further growth potential the focus is on international markets, in particular the countries in Europe and the US and Canada. Currently, exports account for around 50% of POLYRACK Group’s sales. "Our goal is to achieve positive sales development. But we want to do this with the necessary sense of proportion and entrepreneurial foresight", says Andreas Rapp.
