Way from first idea to production
Thinking about disposing recycled plastics in an ecological aware way was the motive for Mrs. Renate Roth and Mr. Lutz Elges with 25 years of engineering experience to found Reluma in Saxony in 1995 and to start processing of recycled plastics.
Since founding of the company, the products and the manufacturing methods were continuously optimized and further developed to produce higly loadable products made of 100% recycled plastics.
Extension of product lines and expansion of production
At the beginning, mainly palisades, benches, tables and other gardening and landscaping products were produced.
Starting in 1997, profiles for water engineering were developed and produced. The first production line for long profiles was completed. In the process, stake profiles were developed which could be rammed into the ground like a wooden stake. The first ramming experiments with these profiles (more than 1000 stakes) when building a noise barrier led to very good results.
Extending the assortment of profiles led to a product range exceeding the possibilites of existing recycling companies.
Relumat2000™ is now a registered trademark. The machine park was further expanded to start the batch production of round, rectangle and board shape profiles for water engineering, civil engineering, gardening and landscaping.
Reorganisation from year 2011 onwards and new developments
In 2011 the companies Reluma International GmbH and Reluma Produktion GmbH were founded. Those companies took over the business operations for products made with Relumat2000™ and are characterized by new management employees with 20 years experience in waste, waste management and plastics industries.
Since 2013 the company SK Kunststoff GmbH was integrated in Reluma group. Reluma International GmbH sells the products of SK Kunststoff made from recycled plastics (snow signs, spacers, etc.) since that date.
The assortment of profiles made of Relumat2000™ now ranges from simple planks for patios to railroad sleepers, which were tested succesfully by Dresdner Verkehrsbetriebe and were brought into service.
