We are a medium-sized, owner-managed family company with sustainable business policy and planning, an active digitization strategy and embedded into the region.

Due to our connection to the region and the paper capital Düren, the paper and pulp industry continues to be one of the core markets. The roll production is supplemented by the roll service.

The KRAFFT competence team is available for conversions, extensions or modernizations of existing paper or cardboard production lines.

With our KRAFFT engineering team, we develop, design and manufacture support systems for the paper industry and turn-key systems with drives, conditioning, etc. for refining non-paper webs using thermal and physical processes, including control systems.

The founding headquarter in Düren has always been modernized and expanded as far as possible. Most recently, in 2019 and 2020, the production areas were expanded and key manufacturing machines were renewed.

The second production site in the nearby industrial park has been expanded with a new hall since it was founded in 1996 and in 2013/2014, and in recent years it has been adapted to the growing requirements with new supporting systems and machines.

In 1999 KRAFFT acquired KELZENBERG + CO., who has been a local competitor. Meantime the organisation and the products have been integrated into KRAFFT´s own portfolio. Kelzenberg products are now sold using the KRAFFT branding.

In 2019 WUMAG TEXROLL GmbH & Co. KG has been acquired as part of an asset deal. At the Center of Excellence in Krefeld core products like thin-walled Drying Cylinders for textile drying, Double-Shell Rollers with thin-walled stainless steel jackets and Double-Shell Large Rollers will be produced.
