Kuhne Anlagenbau GmbH – all under ONE ROOF

We at “Kuhne Anlagenbau GmbH”, as a member of the Kuhne Group, have specialized in the production of individual blown film lines.

The origin of Kuhne as a company can be dated back to 1934 with the founding of the machine shop Maschinenfabrik Heinrich Koch. In 1959, Mr. Walter Kuhne assumes the management of the company “Battenfeld Extruderwerk” in Siegburg, which he later takes over in the year 1970, to become “Battenfeld Kuhne Extruderwerk GmbH”. In 1972 Kuhne Anlagenbau emerges as a division of Battenfeld Extruderwerk GmbH. The move to our current headquarters in Sankt Augustin took effect in 1975.

In October 1979, Kuhne Anlagenbau GmbH was founded as an independent 100% subsidiary of Kuhne GmbH.

In the 70s and 80s, we executed many mayor turnkey projects in the plastics industry. In the 90s, we built a production program in the field of plastic recycling, and for a short time were considered the leading suppliers of complete plants. With the elimination of government subsidies this market collapsed almost entirely, so we had to look for new business opportunities. Based on decades of blown film know-how from our parent Kuhne GmbH, we developed our first Triple Bubble® blown film line in 1996.

With our present day core competence we focus above all on manufacturing multilayer systems of up to 17 layers, which can process virtually all thermoplastic resins.
