All about


riba – A success story.

In 1908, the company was founded in Hamm (Westphalia) for which the name still represents today: The production of trendsetting, reliable and high-quality solutions for the packaging sector.

Back then, we started with the production of piping bags and wrapping paper. Since 1957, we have developed into one of the most modern PE film plants in Europe with more than 100 employees and a production capacity of several million running metres per day.

We are proud of our more than 100-year company history, lived through many changes in this time, adapted to constantly changing market requirements, have been open-minded about new chances and opportunities, but always remained true to our roots. riba remains riba: a tradition of innovation.

We are happy to revive the memories of this success story without losing sight of the here and now. In close cooperation with our partners HVB Hoch-Vakuum-Beschichtungs GmbH in Berlin and pfc premium film company GmbH in Hamburg, we are optimistic about the future and look forward to upcoming opportunities and challenges.

Philosophy and corporate principles.

Our world revolves around packaging. Agreed, this sounds trivial at first glance. However, packaging means much more to us than just the outer shell of a product. Packaging provides protection from damage and contamination and safety for our customers, their products and in particular for the end user. In addition, the packaging should be convenient, produced in a sustainable way and represent brand and product effectively. As a result, packaging is not just PE film, but also an all-rounder for many applications. That's why we love what we do.

That is why we do not only our daily job at riba; we also research and advance the company and our products. We have internalised our corporate principles and incorporated them into our daily work. To satisfy our customers and end users, we are never satisfied with the status quo, but always looking for new, breakthrough ideas and solutions.
