Passion for Packaging

Since 1957

Company History

Founded in 1957 as a family business, thanks to its many pioneering innovations, ROVEMA quickly evolved from a small firm into a medium-size company.

In 1981, the family of Dr. Walter Baur acquired the majority shareholding. Along with a strict focus on the market and close proximity to its customers, a combination of a rigorous reorganization and investments in the development of both existing products and completely new solutions for packaging technology saw the company emerge as the technology leader in its industry.

Since June 2015, H.Q. Equita from Bad Homburg / Germany has been the new majority shareholder, with Managing Partner Thomas Becker.

The international network is continuously being expanded with ROVEMA subsidiaries and representatives.

From June 2015 until November 2017 H.Q. Equita, Bad Homburg/Germany was the majority shareholder of ROVEMA GmbH with Dipl. Ing. MBA Thomas Becker as Managing Partner.

As of December 2017, Franz Haniel & Cie. GmbH (Haniel) is now the owner of ROVEMA GmbH. Managing Director remains Dipl. Ing. MBA Thomas Becker.

In August 2018, the previous managing director Thomas Becker decided to leave the company for personal reasons by mutual agreement with the shareholders. Peter Baumgartner, the previous Chairman of the Supervisory Board, has been appointed interim CEO.
