03.06.2019 Manfred Bracher to leave RKW

RKW Group, Frankenthal, Germany, has announced that Dr Manfred Bracher, a member of its executive management board, will resign from his position, with effect from end of June to pursue new professional opportunities. The supervisory board has accepted his request for early termination. In recent years, Dr Bracher has made a significant contribution to the growth of RKW’s international business and its production sites.

He has been a member of the RKW SE Board since January 2014. RKW CEO Harald Biederbick will take over Dr Bracher’s principal responsibilities until further notice. On behalf of the company, Dr Rudolf Wehrli, chairman of the supervisory board, expressed his gratitude to Dr Bracher for his valuable services as member of RKW’s executive board and wished him all the best for his future.

RKW is the market leader in the areas of hygiene and agricultural films, films for the beverage industry and packaging for powdery goods. In addition, the company makes films and nonwovens for medical applications, for the chemical and converting industries as well as for the construction sector. One of its products is the revolutionary ProVent® ECORE 5 self-venting plastic sack which is made from 100% fully recyclable polyethylene and offers maximum moisture barrier protection; in many respects it is more sustainable than paper sacks (see EBS News for week of 18 March 2019). In fiscal year 2018, RKW generated total sales of €878 million.
