On April 1, 1961, Rudolf Loh bought a small weaving mill in central Hesse and founded the Rittal company. A small steel manufacturing company has become a global digital enterprise.

The standard enclosure is used in millions of product solutions in industries worldwide. Rittal is one of the market leaders for enclosure technology and IT infrastructure, with 10,000 employees worldwide working on new innovations, industry solutions and business models.

Rittal solutions are used in control and switchgear engineering, IT and the energy market, shipbuilding, hospitals and soccer stadiums. A total of 58 subsidiaries handle sales and service of Rittal products worldwide. In the Central Hesse region, Rittal is the largest employer and has recently invested over 250 million euros in the construction of a completely digitally integrated plant in Haiger.

“I am very proud of 60 years of success that we have written together with all our employees,” said Friedhelm Loh, Owner and CEO, Friedhelm Loh Group. “What makes us tick is curiosity, customer orientation, the courage to take risks and the joys of shared success, because we love the future.”
