About us

The KraussMaffei Berstorff product brand is internationally synonymous with state-of-the-art and value-proven solutions in extrusion technology. The product range extends from individual extruders with corresponding molds, to upstream and downstream components, all the way to automated system solutions. Along with an individualized range of services, KraussMaffei Berstorff distinguishes itself as an reliable system partner, particularly for the chemical, automotive, construction, packaging, and pharmaceutical industries.

The company is globally active and has established itself in numerous markets as a leading brand for extrusion. Internationally, KraussMaffei Berstorff constantly uses opportunities that arise in the growth markets in Asia, the USA, and South America. Precisely the current construction boom in China, for example, brings with it a large need for machines that process polyolefin pipes, which KraussMaffei Berstorff meets for the specific market with local production in Haiyan.

The largest production locations for the KraussMaffei Berstorff brand within the Group are Hanover, Munich, and Haiyan (China). While extrusion lines and systems for customers in the automotive and large-scale chemical industries are primarily produced in Hanover, the main production focus in Munich is lines for customers in the construction industry as well as the packaging and electronics industries.

The experts of KraussMaffei Berstorff provide their customers with individualized support already in the advance development phase, for example, with test series in their own engineering laboratory for rubber and plastics processing. Here, the engineering center in Hanover focuses on all rubber processing technologies and plastics applications, while the main focus in Florence, KY (USA) is serving customers with test series for pelleting or film production.
