In 1898, Paul Rauschert Senior founded a factory for the production of electro-technical porcelain in Hüttengrund/Thuringia. Fifty years later, it had developed into a producer of ceramic technical components with 2,200 employees in 7 factories.
After World War 2, only the two factories in Steinbach and Pressig remained. The company eventually began a new period of growth and reconstruction.
By 1967, about 600 employees were again working with Rauschert. The growth allowed the scope of supply from the company to expand to include plastic injection molding at a new facility in Oberbettingen/Eifel. This made it possible to produce ceramic and plastic parts in almost any shape, and allowed the production of packing for the chemicals industry.
In 1969, Rainer Kober, a grandson of the company’s former founder, joined in management with Paul Ernst Metzler, Gottfried P. Rauschert and Dietrich Rauschert.
In 1976, the Process Engineering Division was founded, along with the production of new products designed for chemical processes including metal packing, column internals, mass transfer trays, and turnkey units. This department eventually transformed into an independent limited company as a supplier for the chemical industry and environmental protection projects.
In 2004, a subsidiary known as Rauschert Process Technology, Inc. was established in Knoxville, TN, USA.
In 2005, a subsidiary known as Rauschert Chemical Equipment Co., Ltd. was established in Shanghai, China.
In 2005, Rauschert Verfahrenstechnik GmbH split off from the Raushert Group and joined with Kober Steinwiesen GmbH to form the Kober Group, founded by Mr. Rainer Kober.
In 2008, Rauschert Verfahrenstechnik GmbH was renamed RVT Process Equipment GmbH as a consequence of splitting off from the Rauschert Group.
