Our Company History
From garage start-up to global technology leader! RATTUNDE AG was founded in 1990 under the name RATTUNDE & Co GmbH, as a family-run business with its headquarters in Bentwisch, Germany. +In 1995 we moved to our current headquarters in Ludwigslust, and have been active as a manufacturer in the mechanical engineering sector ever since. More than 30 years ago we started out building special-purpose machines with just a few staff members, high hopes, the spirit of invention and innovation, and the courage to blaze our own trail . To this day, we develop innovative, high- performance ACS manufacturing systems and machining centers for the metalworking industry. After several years in the market, we founded RATTUNDE Corporation as our first subsidiary in 2006, in Grand Rapids, Michigan (United States). In 2014, RATTUNDE Corporation built and moved into its new headquarters on its company premises in Caledonia, Michigan. We founded our Mexican subsidiary RATTUNDE S. de R.L. de C.V. in 2016 in order to gain proximity to our customers there and to provide first-class service to them. In 2020 we established another subsidiary in Japan, known as RATTUNDE K.K. All machines that we sell and deliver around the globe are produced at our headquarters in Ludwigslust – literally “Made in Germany”.
We are proud of our staff members, qualified specialists, technicians and engineers, who are passionate about researching and developing new technologies. The expertise and cutting-edge technology that goes into all our products have earned us numerous German and European patents. Day in, day out, we are motivated by the continuous pursuit of invention and innovation. Our machines are used by customers around the globe. With our systems they manufacture their products in a wide range of metal-working industries. RATTUNDE machines perform reliably in steel factories, for the manufacturers of tubes and rods, suppliers in the automotive and automobile industries, the mining industry and manufacturers of conveyor belts, in the furniture industry and in the heating and pipeline construction sector.
