History of Rosskopf + Partner
The Rosskopf + Partner group started out small – but that is, in fact, one of its greatest strengths. For although it is counted among the leading manufacturers in the branch, it has never forgotten its roots. From the very beginning, it was important for the Rosskopf + Partner group to grow into a healthy company, but especially to develop what its profile stands for – the potential and the motivation of its employees. That is the reason it can continually adhere to the creative thinking and spirit of innovation that is the foundation of its success.
In a village called Gnadenthal near Limburg in Germany, Helmut Roßkopf begins to work independently in a small carpentry workshop. The small company is a pioneer in the processing of CORIAN® (product and registered trademark of DuPont) and grows successfully.
As part of the further expansion of the company and the reunification of Germany, the first branch facility is established in May 1991 in Hennersdorf near Chemnitz / Saxony. During the next very successful years, Hennersdorf becomes the strategic company headquarters for marketing and processing of solid surface materials.
In summer 1997, a third site in Thuringia is added to the existing company. In July 2000, a new building in the Obermehler airport industrial area is completed. From then on, Obermehler is systematically developed into one of the most modern quartz and stone processing businesses in Europe.
To increase their range of innovative surface materials, Rosskopf + Partner adds a completely new type of material: porcelain ceramics.
Logistics Center and Production Expansion
To increase the sheet material warehouse capacity, a new hall in the Technology and Innovation Centre is procured in Schlotheim, Germany. Also, projects in the field of solid surface material processing begin in the Obermehler facility. With this development, the way is paved for continuing growth.
New Solid Surface Material
The assortment in the area of solid surface materials was expanded by including the brand Avonite® from the US manufacturer Aristech Surfaces LLC. Rosskopf + Partner distributes this material exclusively in Germany and Austria.
