At REHAU, inventiveness is everywhere you look. Good ideas conjured up by our staff and partners are turned into new, innovative products, materials and manufacturing and business processes by the day. But, for us, innovation is not an end in itself. Our daily challenge is to provide our customers and partners with max. possible added value through sophisticated products, solutions and services.

Ever since the company was founded innovation has been the basis of our success and a crucial element of our corporate philosophy:
Since starting out in 1948 we have striven to benefit our customers by finding sustainable polymer solutions for ever new areas of application. In so doing we focus on the fields of energy efficient construction, using renewable forms of energy, systems for water management, new mobility concepts plus future ways of life.

Successful innovation to date impressively demonstrates in just how broad a range of sectors REHAU products from the abovementioned 5 fields are already making their sustainable contribution.

REHAU innovation management rests on two solid foundations:

First, our employees, whose creativity we consistently support and foster. With their fresh ideas, the employees play a crucial role in innovation management. Second, we operate an unambiguous process management policy that makes it possible for us to turn creative ideas into new products, manufacturing processes or business processes at the right time and using the right resources.
