About us

1959
Foundation of ROLF SCHLICHT GmbH by graduate chemist Rolf Schlicht.

Due to personal contacts in the rubber and cable industry, the trading house for technical industrial products specializes in representing internationally well-known manufacturers of machines for these industries, for example:

  • MAILLEFER/Switzerland, manufactuer of barrier screws
  • SAGITTA/Italy, manufacturer of band granulators for precise granulating of rubber compounds
  • REP/France for rubber-injection-moulding machines 
  • BARWELL/Great Britain for ram extruders and pre-formers  

In the course of the years we take over representations for other companies. Most of them we are representing still today:

  • COLMEC/Italy for extruders and extrusion lines for the rubber industry 
  • PRODICON for cooling lines - batch-off and cantilever - in the area of mixing room 
  • COMERIO ERCOLE for calenders, mixing mills and internal mixers 
  • BLACKFRIARS/Great Britain for granulating systems and bale granulators 

1979
Rolf Schlicht’s two sons, Joachim and Michael, join the company to lead the company together.  Under their management the company develops to a reliable and worldwide recognized partner supplying machines for the cable, rubber and plastics industry with continuous growth.

1983
ROLF SCHLICHT GmbH starts working on the development of powder-coating machines for continuously running strands, mainly in the cable and rubber industry.
Together with a specialized machine manufacturer near to Hamburg, we are meanwhile already producing the fourth generation of our powder-coating system.

2004   RSC

Due to an absolutely dust-free operation and a finely adjustable powdering intensity, these machines are supplied worldwide.

We deliver systems for manifold sectors: from high-speed cable lines to extrusion lines for rubber profiles, hoses or bands, production of molded goods and more. We also develop special systems exactly customized to the requirements of individual clients.

For machines manufactured by ourselves we also have a worldwide network of agencies, ready to serve our customers.

1982
Establishment of USD Gebrauchtmaschinen für Gummi und Kunststoff GmbH - 35 years of experience.

This subsidiary is mainly engaged in procuring and selling used and reconditioned machines and whole lines for the rubber industry, but also offers a choice of new machines.

1995
Foundation of SCHLICHT Handelsgesellschaft oHG, as further subsidiary. This company concentrates on cleaning technology and dosing systems for the plastics industry. The product range includes RAPID PURGE cleaning compound, thermal cleaning systems, DUROPLAST plastic-blast medium, Stoner mold release agent and Plastrac dosing devices.

1997
ROLF SCHLICHT GmbH changes office location to new, larger and more modern facilities. A larger stock for spare parts and a technical center for execution of trials further promote the progression and expansion of the company. Today, this enables us to attend to our customers even more intensively than before.

2001
Together with our partner, we manufacture high-precision cutting machines and caterpillars, type RS-Multicut for plastics and rubber extrusion. Our systems correspond to the latest state of technology. They guarantee clean cut faces, are flexibly applicable and require little maintenance. These machines are worldwide very popular.

Technical advice, fast delivery of spare parts ex our stock in Hamburg and prompt service are as much our strength as are personal visits to customers’ factories and trials at our facilities.
To provide as much information as possible about our product range and to maintain personal contacts, we travel around the world and exhibit on trade fairs, for example, the “K”, “Wire”, “IRC” and “Fakuma”.

We are persistently looking for interesting new equipment and new technology for our customers.

2005
ROLF SCHLICHT GmbH becomes representative of NorMec, Norway.

NorMec develops, produces and supplies very successfully complete film splicing and processing machines worldwide.
Processing/splicing of all kinds of rubber profiles like EPDM, NBR, SBR, CR and NR by using a film/tape is possible. Furthermore splicing of plastic profiles made of TPE or other fusible material (without film/tape) is possible. Multiple cavities in the tools are available, consequently the economic efficiency will increase.
