In memory of the founder and manager of KURO Kunststoffe GmbH - Wilfried Schwengels.


For 24 years, Wilfried Schwengels managed the company and left his mark on it with his many ideas, his strong will and straightforward character.

He began his career as a mechanical technician at Weyhausen in Westerstede, where he first dealt with the development of machines for industrial use. His subsequent time as area manager at Walther Rohrposttechnik GmbH, now Swisslog Healthcare GmbH, was very important for his development.

Firmly rooted in the pneumatic post industry, Wilfried Schwengels decided to go independent and founded KURO Kunststoffe GmbH in Westerstede in 1989, where he started producing plastic pipe bends for pneumatic post systems.

Innovative process techniques enabled him to quickly develop the young company into an internationally successful provider of specialist plastic pipe products. To match the continuous expansion of the product range and development of the customer base, Wilfried Schwengels had the new facilities in Edewecht built in 2001. They are still in use today. The new site meets the high demands to production, storage and logistics on now 40,000 sqm.

Wilfried Schwengels was an enthusiastic entrepreneur to whom the company was his mission and the work of his life at the same time. He never lost sight of his highly valued employees and their work.

With his visionary action, Wilfried Schwengels set the tracks for a continued successful future of KURO Kunststoffe GmbH.
