Reiner Hackbarth Kunststoffverarbeitung GmbH

Your specialist for sales packaging and flexible packaging of all kinds made of PE and PP films

With the experience gained over more than 50 years, the family business Reiner Hackbarth Kunststoffverarbeitung GmbH produces sales packaging made of polyethylene and polypropylene films. With the highest standards of quality and service, we have grown and become one of the leading suppliers in the production of promotional carrying and hanging packaging made of flexible films.

With a range that includes high-quality carrier bags, block-bottom bags, adhesive bags and pressure seal bags – our production programme is diverse and tailored to meet the wishes of our customers. Manufacturers from the bedding sector, for example, make use of our range of carrier bags and pouches. They need sales packaging for packaged goods that have a large volume. Suppliers of self-service department stores like to use hanging solutions for home and household textiles. Our hook bags and carrier bags with single or double hangers are particularly suitable for this.

We manufacture all of our goods in-house at the Wiehl-Drabenderhöhe site. This means that we can guarantee the highest quality and flexibility. Our customers receive the packaging they want in between one and ten colours using flexographic printing. This enables them to integrate information specific to their products. We also produce small runs of our bags and pouches.

Fast availability, market-driven prices and individual samples are a matter of course for us. Our customers receive their film packaging on schedule and in short delivery times. Thanks to our large warehouse at our company headquarters in Drabenderhöhe, we also offer longer-term arrangements for call-off orders.

Tailor-made, flexible and environmentally neutral: these are the guiding principles for providing our customers with exactly the packaging they need. To achieve this, we attach a great deal of importance to consistently high quality standards and guarantee industrial customers full security of supply. We support our customers with advice in all of their decisions and questions. And we are aware of our responsibility in terms of environmentally-friendly production.

Our history

Sales packaging from the Oberbergisch area - for over 50 years


This is how it all started: In April Reiner Hackbarth founded the company as a sole trader for film packaging. At that time the company was based at Höherdahlstraße 3 in Drabenderhöhe.


Time for an expansion: Reiner Hackbarth expanded the business in May by moving into a converted barn at Drabenderhöhe Straße 15.

Four years later, in September 1974, the company moved into the 240 m² production hall on the site it acquired in 1973 on the Drabenderhöhe industrial estate.


We had to find even more space: After a few years the production hall had become too small and so we built a storage and production hall. In August 1988, this was extended again when a flexographic printing system came on stream, which expanded the production programme of our packaging.


A new name for our family business: Right at the start of the year, the company was to be renamed Reiner Hackbarth Kunststoffverarbeitung GmbH. Reiner Hackbarth, Helga Hackbarth, Anke Mohnberg and Axel Hackbarth became the shareholders.


The expansion of our packaging company is progressing: in May we built a big new warehouse with high shelves.

Five years later, in June 1997, we enlarged the production halls and redesigned the administrative wing. This also included the addition of a 450 m² high-bay warehouse. This meant that the converted floor space came to a total of 2,500 m².

In the summer of 2000, our dispatch warehouse was expanded and the existing storage areas for our sales packaging were extended.


We keep up with the times: Since September we have been online with our website. This has been redesigned twice over the following years to meet the latest standards.

Two years later, in spring 2001, we introduced our own corporate identity. This gave us a new, representative image as a packaging specialist.


In April Axel Hackbarth took over management of the the company from his father,
the company’s founder Reiner Hackbarth.

Everything from a single source: At the beginning of the year, we transferred production that we had previously bought-in into our own company. Since then, the products, some of which are handmade, have been produced at home near our company site. This has enabled us to shorten and optimise delivery and access times.


Expanding capacity: In July we expanded our production capacity by purchasing a modern computer-controlled assembly machine.

Another high-speed machine with a working width of 1,000 mm followed in November 2013.

An additional separating seam finishing line was installed and came on stream around three years later in March 2017.


We have a reason to celebrate: Reiner Hackbarth GmbH turned 50 and celebrated its anniversary. We invited all of our employees along with their families to a shared celebration at the company’s headquarters in Drabenderhöhe. It was particularly nice to see many former members of the company meeting up again for a chat.


In August we closed down the operational part of the printing house. One year later the former printing house was extended to expand the ready-made clothing production.


Certified quality of our products and processes: The conversion of the ISO certification to the current standard ISO 9001:2015 was completed in April.


We are expanding the production of compostable packaging by specializing in machine production.


The corona pandemic requires the expansion of our hygiene measures to maintain the health of our employees.

The relaunch of our website has been successfully implemented and published.

We rely on packaging made of high-quality flexible films

Quality management plays a very important role for us. We attach a great deal of importance to a low rate of complaints or defects. This means that we are continuously working on improving our processes. And with some success: We received the first certification in 2012 and were able to extend it in April 2018 to include the ISO 9001:2015 certification standard. The annually recurring audits by the TÜV also confirm our high standard of quality in our products and services.
