Diplom-Ingenieur Harald Feuerherm laid the cornerstone for our company’s success in 1977 with a pioneering invention in the area of radial wall thickness distribution. Since then three generations have worked on the systematic further development and optimization of the PWDS®/SFDR® system: The use of this technology, which allows the optimization of the wall thicknesses of hollow plastic bodies, allows manufacturers to achieve significant savings in materials costs, cycle times, production costs, and CO2 emissions.
The further development of the technology and the family-managed company’s international expansion led to rapid growth: The cellar rooms of the residence in which company founder Harald Feuerherm developed his idea were soon no longer sufficient. After multiple relocations, we moved into our new headquarter with a large factory floor in Troisdorf in 2014. Here, three generations and fifteen employees work with innovative solutions for the extrusion blow moulding industry.
Today, PWDS®, SFDR®, and WDLS are synonyms for optimized, sustainable blow moulding manufacturing processes.
These systems make Feuerherm the leader on the world market.
Our technology is the most often sold radial wall thickness system for hollow blow-moulded bodies – more than 1,500 of them are in use all over the world. Today, a combination of PWDS® and SFDR® is used in almost all areas of plastic blow moulding. Manufacturers of hollow packaging bodies such as canisters, barrels, and IBCs, of technical parts such as plastic fuel tanks and filling tubes, and of blow-moulded leisure accessories and toys have counted on our technology for years.
PWDS®/SFDR® systems allow efficient production savings on material and energy consumption, and an increase in product quality and reliability. We deliver an all-around package to our customers: We provide consulting for the selection of the right product, adapt the system to the individual requirements, ensure smooth commissioning, and continuously optimize and maintain the systems.
Dipl.-Ing. Harald Feuerherm and his wife Gisela Feuerherm found the companies Ingenieurbüro H. Feuerherm and Handel Gisela Feuerherm based on Harald Feuerherm’s invention. The key to success is the system by which the wall thicknesses of hollow plastic bodies were influenced by their circumferences.
The success continues in a new office and residence with five employees. The second generation, consisting of Elke Feuerherm, Armin Feuerherm and Rolf Kappen-Feuerherm enter the business.
Elke Feuerherm takes over the company Handel Gisela Feuerherm. The company concerns itself from this point on with all the concerns of the growing list of customers.
The business now employs eight and moves to a new office building in Troisdorf, where the success story continues.
Max Feuerherm represents the third generation to enter the business. To this day, all three generations work with innovative solutions for the blow moulding industry.
In the year in which Dipl.-Ing. Harald Feuerherm celebrates his 50th anniversary in the blow moulding business, the family-owned enterprise moves to a larger office building with an attached assembly hall, where a total of 15 employees work for the success of the customers.
We look back on four decades of Technology, Innovation and Tradition and we would like to thank all the business partners for the good cooperation and the trust. We look forward to many more decades of good business relations.
PWDS®/SFDR® remains the most often sold radial wall thickness system for hollow blow-moulded bodies – more than 1,500 of them are in use all over the world. The savings that can be achieved in materials costs, cycle time, production costs, and CO2, make PWDS®/SFDR® and Feuerherm attractive to many manufacturers.
