Rädlinger Primus Line GmbH
Rädlinger Primus Line GmbH is the manufacturer of PRIMUS LINE, a new technology of flexible high-pressure pipes for the transport of gases and liquids in large diameters. PRIMUS LINE finds its use in the renovation of high-pressure pipes, in a bypass-pipe during maintenance and in many other fields of application.
Rädlinger primus line GmbH is part of the Rädlinger group which has been active in the construction sector for over 40 years. Today, the company is one of the most successful construction companies in Germany whose expertise mainly lies in road construction, civil engineering and asphalt construction.
From the Idea to Success
Primus Line was developed to solve the recurring, time-consuming and costly problem of run-down pipelines in existing buildings.
Josef Rädlinger already had the idea of using a hose for civil engineering 20 years ago. The hose was to be characterised by flexibility, portability, light weight and low wall thickness, while having the material strength of a steel pipe.
Ten years later, with being open to new ideas, the know-how from the fields of construction, mechanical engineering and web technology were combined to find a creative and efficient solution. Together with research and industry partners Rädlinger experts developed the Primus Line technology. This technology now sets news standards in gas ans liquid transportation.
In last decades, Rädlinger has continuously further developed itself as a company. The company is now active in the fields of construction, mechanical engineering, steel construction, solar panels and in trenchless pipe rehabilitation with Rädlinger primus line GmbH. In addition to several subsidiaries in southern Germany, Rädlinger also has subsidiaries in Austria, Romania and the Czech Republic. The international Rädlinger Group employs about 1,200 people in various fields.
The goal of the management of Rädlinger primus line GmbH is to meet customers' requirements within the range of the pipe rehabilitation system Primus Line. The products and services provided are implemented according to the Quality Assurance Standard ISO 9001, the Environmental Management Standard DIN EN ISO 14001 and the Occupational Safety Directive OHSAS 18001.
Legal requirements are taken into consideration as is our own heightened awareness of quality and the environment. The primary objective of the quality, environmental and occupational safety policy is to provide our customers with complete satisfaction, through superior, error-free products, as well as reliability through established customer-supplier relationships.
Among the top corporate principles include the orientation of activities to customer requirements to increase customer value and meet the highest requirements in quality and environmental issues.
However, the quality of products and services should rather be viewed as a challenge to be constantly improving, and to be able to keep up with the growing demands of an increasingly global market.
To meet the said quality, and environmental and safety policy, a management system was introduced, which is described in management handbook:
- All services, from the costing of work preparation, production and construction work to the carrying out of maintenance, are performed on the basis of orders and customers. Positive project results and satisfied customers is our goal.
- Our employees are the foundation of our success. Motivation and further training are the key to sustainable implementation of a constant improvement process.
- Long-term, solid supplier relationships sustain a continuous supply of purchased goods and services with all the necessary support.
Manufacturer of a unique system for trenchless pipe rehabilitation
One idea was the spark which stimulated the successful development of Primus Line® - the unique system for the no dig rehabilitation of pressure lines. After intensive development work, Rädlinger primus line GmbH was founded in 2001 as a part of the powerful Rädlinger Group. Since then, the global network of installation partners and the flexible relining system have grown with its application in a great number of projects around the world. Today the manufacturer of the trenchless technology, with headquarters in Germany and subsidiaries in the USA and in Australia, has numerous employees active in the areas of technology and development, production and international sales.
From Production Conditions through to the Finished Product
The production works of Primus Line was designed especially for the production of Kevlar reinforced pipe. Both from a production-technical standpoint and with regard to the product quality, Primus Line is produced under optimum conditions.
The company itself imposes conditions which involve a significant exceeding of standards as an objective, which is also reflected in the quality as well as the environmental and occupational safety policy.
Product Specific Certificates
As a particularly reliable and secure system, Primus Line also satisfies the most demanding specifications relating to hygiene and is therefore even suitable for the renewal of drinking water pipelines, which is associated with high requirements. Primus Line already possesses corresponding certifications in the following countries:
Primus Line uses the existing infrastructure, protects nature and the environment as a result of the minimal impact and requires only a low level of machine deployment. Sustainable and ecology-minded thinking was decisive in the development of the trenchless technology, and to this day it has been a feature of its business principles, (possibly: the company fulfills the Quality Assurance Standard ISO 9001, the Environmental Management Standard DIN EN ISO 14001 and the Occupational Safety Directive OHSAS 18001.).
