About RUCKS

We are specialised in the individual production of customised presses for many varying applications. Our production range extends from small laboratory presses to complex production lines. We cover the entire value added chain , from the design/ construction to the production and commissioning, including services.

We are a small, but proactive team of about 30 highly qualified people.

We like to collaborate confidentially with our customers and suppliers for our mutual benefit. Our corporate philosophy relies on frank and fair co-operation which enables us to speak about potential problems as early as possible and thus to find solutions without a lawyer.
