REX – a company with tradition

Rex Asbestos Works is founded. From the very beginning, the company set a high technical standard in the development and processing of heat- and fire-resistant fibres and soon became one of the global technology leaders in its field.


Rex takes responsibility and, researching asbestos substitutes, gradually converts production until 1989 – years before asbestos use is officially banned by law in Germany.


REX establishes its three divisions at the beginning of the 1990s: Textiles, Insulation technology and Friction and gliding materials. In the process, the premise is to use non-hazardous and largely solvent-free products.


Quality management is awarded the DIN EN ISO 9001 certificate by TÜV Süd for the first time.


In order to increase production and competitiveness, the friction materials division moves to a new production hall at the Vellberg site.
