Deutsche Werkzeugbau GmbH takes over R+S Automotive GmbH’s location in Breitscheid

The Breitscheid site of R+S Automotive GmbH will in future be operated as Breitscheider Werkzeugbau GmbH under the leadership of Deutsche Werkzeugbau GmbH (DWB) from Munich. Together with the internationally operating management consultancy Sattler & Partner, R+S completed the sale at the end of May.

The core competence at the Breitscheid site lies in producing tools and molds for plastic parts and in manufacturing tools and molds in the metal sector. Currently, the site employs 23 people.

In 2019, Bocholt based R+S Automotive GmbH decided on a comprehensive program of measures to secure its competitiveness and increase its profitability. A gloomy forecast about the automotive industry and the still ongoing Covid-19 pandemic meant that a general increase in efficiency in all areas of the company, in addition to personnel capacity adjustment was unavoidable. „I would like to thank all employees in Breitscheid for the good cooperation. We are glad to have found a strategically oriented owner in DWB, who is experienced in toolmaking and shows the employees at the Breitscheid site a long-term perspective. We will continue to maintain a close business relationship with Breitscheider Werkzeugbau GmbH in order to optimize handling of joint projects”, comments Brahim Fardouss, Managing Director of R+S Automotive GmbH.
