History

The POLYRACK Electronic-Aufbausysteme GmbH was founded in 1979 by Horst Rapp as the first company of the POLYRACK TECH-GROUP. Horst Rapp, who graduated in mechanical engineering and business administration, was previously executive assistant to the board of directors of a large jewelry company, but saw better prospects in the field of electronics. What began in Straubenhardt-Conweiler with just one man is today a company whose success story is now in the hands of over 250 employees. At the same time, it is the story of an impressive development from a pure manufacturing service provider to a turnkey supplier, whose service portfolio ranges from engineering and design to the final product.

Thanks to extended fields of competences, new opportunities for growth have been created within the international competition also. The challenges of globalisation have been realised and used as opportunity. Thereby, the independent subsidiary in Rhode Island, USA, plays an important role. Founded in 2006, the POLYRACK North America Corp. has been able to establish itself in this promising market, operating out of its own company premises since 2008. The construction of a new plant in Straubenhardt in 2007, enabling thus to move in one location, brought together the technology sectors system, plastics and surface technology. To support the positive development, we created extra capacity in the fields of mechanics and plastics technology through the establishment of an additional production plant in Ettlingen in 2014.
