Innovation is the key to the success of this company that was founded in 1965 and is located in Schwabmünchen, Bavaria. With high-precision products, flexibility and high cost-efficiency, Ritter redefines the plastic injection moulding business time and again. Proof of this is the number of patents the company holds.
On 25,000 m2, over 300 employees fulfil consistently high quality standards with first-class plastic products.
Ritter GmbH is certified in accordance with ISO 9001 / EN ISO 13485 / ISO 50001.
Ritter only uses tested, non-toxic plastics. The RG 32 Bio cartridge, just like the RRK 01 Bio piston, is based on renewable raw materials and is biodegradable. The latter also ensures that the cartridge discharges fully in an optimal way.
Biodegradable synthetic materials are used, whenever possible, in the manufacture of high-quality Ritter medical products that can be sent for recycling after use.
Ritter gathers all the plastic sprues from the production process and recycles these too.
Energy efficiency and environmental protection
The new Ritter production plant has an energy control system that covers all aspects. It controls and regulates the lighting, ventilation and heating completely automatically and ensures maximum energy savings. This innovation was awarded the LEW Innovation Prize 2013 by the utility company, Lechwerke.
Ritter produces its own electricity from a 700kWp photovoltaic system and can both warm and cool the whole production site with the waste heat from a 2mW cogeneration unit. With closed cooling circuits, the problem of waste water is avoided.
