Our Group

The ROTZINGER Group emerged from ROTZINGER AG in Kaiseraugst (Switzerland) and was created to federate the growing number of companies. Starting with conveying and buffering equipment, the Group now offers a complete portfolio from processing to packaging serving industries such as biscuit, chocolate, bakery, confectionery, pharmaceutical, and more. The scope includes physical elements to digital services allowing customers to control and manage entire processes from sensor to ERP and over multiple plants. Our main goal is to help our customers to reduce the unit cost of their products.

ROTZINGER Group belongs to Fourtec (a family of four friends, all in leading positions) and the minority stakeholder Syntegon (formerly SIG that later became a Bosch Packaging entity). The Group accounts for more than 300 employees worldwide.

In the ROTZINGER Group, we have fun doing business and enjoy the many customers who keep coming back to us with new projects!

Our members

Founded in 1983 by Marc-Olivier DEMAUREX, the company has gradually become a leader in pick & place Delta robotic systems. 

  • It is well known in the chocolate, biscuit, bakery, and many non-food industries. This family business with over 70 employees located in the French part of Switzerland joined the ROTZINGER Group in 2018. The arrival of the Delta robots in the Group was a technological boost that gave birth to several new integrated solutions for product handling and distribution and led to new packaging concepts. A team of developers is working on innovative technologies to find new ways to support our customers’ processes.

Hansella

In 1921, Albert HENKEL senior and junior developed their company into a flourishing business with affiliates worldwide. 

  • In 1966, BOSCH took over and continued developing the well-known companies Strunck and Togum into the portfolio.The company located in Viersen (Germany) with over 100 employees joined the ROTZINGER Group beginning in 2021. With this extension, the ROTZINGER Group provides processing and packaging solutions for confectionery, gum, and bars and filling & capping machinery, thus allowing customers to obtain a broader range of equipment from one source.

Founded in 1948 by Karl ROTZINGER, the conveyor and buffer business grew nicely. The ROTZINGER brand became synonymous with “buffer” (meaning “product flow regulator”).

  • Since the arrival of SIG (today a Syntegon company) as a minority shareholder, the focus is on efficiently conveying and distributing products in the food industries for chocolate, biscuits, bakeries, and frozen food. The company based in Kaiseraugst (Switzerland) accounts for 80 employees and has become a leading supplier of solutions to improve product distribution efficiency, flow regulation, and buffering.

Founded in 1968 by Werner BÜHRER, the company specialized in transportation equipment for the packaging industry (which gave the name “TRANSport und VERpackung”).

  • TRANSVER is famous for its functional conveyors such as curves, angled belts, distribution stations, complex biscuit or wash-down distribution systems, or feeding chains. The company based in Altendorf (Switzerland) with their more than 40 employees joined the ROTZINGER Group in 2011 and has more than doubled their staff since.

Starting as a machine controls company in 1982, Philippe RAMSEIER and his knowledgeable team have developed AUTEXIS to become a leader in automation. 

  •  

    AUTEXIS consists of two division: AUTEXIS Control builds from simple machine controls to complex process control systems in food and non-food industries. AUTEXIS IT builds and markets the “Digital Factory”, a scalable MES software package allowing customers to lead its staff and to control processes from the sensor to the ERP. This cutting-edge technology allows customers to identify dormant potential to increase efficiency and to improve product quality. Since 2020, ROTZINGER Group is co-owner of AUTEXIS – a partner that fits perfectly in the ROTZINGER Group. AUTEXIS is based in Villmergen (Switzerland) and employs 40 employees.

Founded in 1994, Moses FARAHANI has brought the company to great success.

  • With many ingenious ideas and a user-friendly design, MF-hamburg has become a name in the industry. The company is located in Tangstedt (Germany) and employs 25 people. The yearlong partnership of MF-hamburg with HANSELLA, mainly for chocolate enrobing and cooling of bars, has led the ROTZGINER Group to foster the relationship and take a majority stake in MF-hamburg. This new technology for the Group will lead to the creation of integrated solutions.
