in product development
REX can look back on almost 70 years of history. Even in times of constant change, the innovative spirit of our employees ensures smooth processes in the manufacture of our customers’ industrial products.
In this way, we consolidate our role as a supplier of industrial products meeting the highest demands across all industries on a daily basis.
We already think about tomorrow today
We take responsibility for our environment and promote sustainable processes. Strict compliance with stringent legal standards is a matter of course at REX.
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.
We think ahead. That’s why we set ourselves realistic goals, such as becoming a global solution provider for the industry. We see our path in the expansion of our dealer network. Nonetheless, it is essential for us to maintain REX´s product quality at the highest level and to continue to offer custom solutions for our customers – all under the premise of sustainability.
