Kundennähe liegt bei uns in der Familie.

Customer proximity is at the essence of our family.

Around four decades of industry experience and market success split across three generations: that’s a brief summary of the history at Rauch GmbH. However, in order to remain competitive on the market one needs to offer something special for their customers. In addition to expertise and innovative strength, our family business cherishes two things above all else, which have always made the difference: mutual respect and friendly collaboration.

Our company values

Our customers are at the heart of what we do. Our goal is to efficiently fulfil their requests and offer complete print solutions. Complete customer focus and a close partnership go without saying. We address the challenges of the future.

Our team of dedicated and competent employees is our most important asset. As a result, high value is placed on further training for those working at Rauch. At each point of our company, we apply our knowledge and experience for the benefit of our customers.

We continue to develop our quality awareness internally and externally. Rauch quality means optimising internal processes, preventing errors across all company processes, outstanding product quality and timely delivery. Through basic and further training, employees can grown and we achieve to safeguard as well as develop our quality levels.

Our environmental responsibility is based on long-term concepts and sustainability. This includes preserving natural resources, using eco-friendly production processes, avoiding emissions and offering competent, environmental services to our customers.

We consider quality, environmental protection and energy efficiency to be an ongoing company goal.

The safety of our employees is of great importance, which is why the ongoing improvement of occupational safety is a fixed part of our processes.

Ongoing optimisation of production processes, ongoing improvement of workplace and equipment safety and safeguarding raw material availability in connection with an intensive, development and application-based exchange of ideas and experiences allow for new, practice-oriented and efficient print solutions for our customers.

Mutual respect is important to us. In order to deliver quality and ensure customer satisfaction, we need qualified, motivated and satisfied employees. All of our employees identify with this approach and represent us externally as a quality supplier. We aim to motivate our employees by assigning responsibilities, recognising the work they put in and providing good information from a business standpoint.

We work closely with our suppliers to ensure the quality and availability of raw materials. We exchange ideas and experiences with our suppliers as part of intensive development and application-based discussions in order to improve our portfolio and allow for practice-oriented print solutions for our customers. We also value reliable partnerships.

More than just a product

Rauch always finds a way

Without question: the quality of our delivered goods must always be perfect. However, after decades of experience, we’ve come to know what else is needed: trust and complete reliability. That’s why you can always rely on us when it comes to the little things or where fast response times are required. Without any ifs and buts. We’re here to help and stand by our promises. It’s not without good reason that our customers have come to value the comprehensive Rauch package consisting of product, advice and service. No matter what you need, we’ll find a solution. Guaranteed.

The difference

The people at Rauch

We are a traditional family business. By family, we don’t just mean management but also everyone who works with and for us. It’s their expertise, and particularly their passion, which keeps us on a winning path. They don’t just do what’s asked of them but also want to make it even better. That’s why everyone in the Rauch team, both internally and externally, is everything in one: skilled employee, partner and problem solver, always willing to go above and beyond for our customers. This makes us both proud and grateful on a daily basis. After all, that’s exactly what we need. Now and in the future.
Die Menschen bei Rauch
First and second generation

From a commercial agency to own production facility

Our company’s origins date back to 1984. It was then that Rolf Rauch founded a free commercial agency in the area of blueprint and drawing technology. Just two years later, Rauch GmbH was formed with Rolf Rauch and his wife Helga as the owners. During these early years, the newly founded company’s programme included the wholesale of special drawing and plotter paper as well as blueprint and large-format photocopying paper for technical offices.
After studying and several years of professional experience, daughter Marion and son-in-law Elmar Kneer took over as the company’s second generation. The range was subsequently upgraded in line with the technical advancements of the time, including with high-quality, digital printable photo and fine art paper. In 1996, Rauch began manufacturing and equipping its own paper rolls and print media for digital inkjet printing.
Vom reinen Handel zur eigenen Fertigung
Third generation

The start of a new era

In 2022, after training and undertaking a dual study placement with the Würth Group, Sebastian Kneer took over responsibility for the family business. The same applies to his sister Luisa who worked for the parental company during her studies. The new management team is thoroughly motivated according to company tradition: across all of its individual departments, new, individual ideas are to be developed and implemented. These form the best conditions for overcoming challenges and safeguarding the future of the company in the long term.
