    The RENOLIT Group stands for partnership-based service, an international focus and innovative, high-quality, reliable products. With more than thirty production sites and sales entities in over twenty countries, we are one of the world’s leading plastic product manufacturers. Founded in 1946 with seven employees in Worms (Germany), where our headquarters are still today, the company now employs over 4,700 people. Their know-how and commitment make our family-owned business a sought after specialist for high-quality films, sheets and other plastic products.

    We make a significant contribution to our customers’ products, and in doing so improve the quality of life for many people. Whether these are decorative surfaces, protective films or self-adhesive applications, almost everyone has experienced RENOLIT products at some time. Our products often make a vital difference. We take the responsibility to our customers as seriously as our responsibility to the environment, society and our employees. As an international organisation, having an open mind comes as naturally to us as mutual respect. As both an employer and business partner, you can always depend on RENOLIT, as we say in our company slogan, “Rely on it”.

    Growth through innovation is a fundamental component of our corporate strategy. We foster a culture that promotes innovative thinking as well as action and stimulates new ideas.
