Extension of clean room production capacities costs EUR 1.2 million 

Manufacturer of plastic components for the medical industry Riegler GmbH & Co. KG based in Mühltal/Ober-Ramstadt, Hessen, strengthens its market position and takes two new certified clean rooms into operation. On an area of 700sqm the company produces high-precision plastic components. Since 1994 Riegler has been producing in class 7 clean rooms according to DIN EN ISO 14644. The new clean rooms conform to ISO class 8 and can be upgraded to ISO class 7, if required.

Customized system solutions and assemblies under controlled conditions 

Riegler GmbH & Co. KG extends its clean room capacities further to be able to master an increasing order volume of customized system solutions and to meet any clean room hygiene requirements in the future as well. “We consciously focus on extending our German plants but also on an international customer orientation“, says Dr. Thomas Jakob, head of the Medical Technology business unit. Presently, Riegler GmbH & Co. KG produces high-precision injection molded- and extrusion blow molded components and component assembly on a total clean room area of more than 3,000sqm. Production sites are in Röhrstraße street and Bahnhofstraße street in Ober-Ramstadt and An der Papiermühle in Mühltal.

Clean room concept tailored to process and product 

The project was completed on schedule within one year, from the construction plan development at the beginning of 2017 to the start of construction in October 2017 up to the qualification of the clean rooms in April 2018. Already when planning the project Riegler focused on an energy-efficient and economic implementation. “When planning new clean rooms it is particularly challenging to consider manufacturing influences and normative clean room requirements”, says construction project manager Andreas Oswald. In addition to the extension of its clean room capacities the company optimized all material flows and modernized plastic granule feeding.
