The RAUCH success story

Innovative agricultural technology since 1921

"The future is a given, however, any progress we make is down to us."

2023 - 2023


RAUCH fulfills a dream as the new administrative building on Victoria Boulevard E 200 in Rheinmünster becomes a reality. The old location in Sinzheim has been abandoned, marking a significant milestone in RAUCH's history. The move aims to enhance efficiency and create a pleasant, eco-friendly work environment. After 16 months of construction and an investment of €8 million, the administrative building is now situated right next to the production facility, improving collaboration and future prospects.
