GERMANY • Inometa was founded in 1981 by Wilfried Tappe and the company announced it is celebrating its evolution into a roller specialist, known for lightweight solutions. For the anniversary occasion, the company invited all of its employees and their families to attend a summer festival. The company is also looking for professionals, especially cutting machine operators from the grinding or turning technology fields.
The company began manufacturing carbon fiber-reinforced composites (CFRP) printing cylinders and adapters for the flexographic printing in 1999. With this, the company achieved success in the processing of CFRP into components. Aluminum components are still in high demand among its customers, but the CFRP share among the incoming orders is continuously rising.
In 2015, the company’s founder Wilfried Tappe retired from the daily business activities at Inometa and handed over the company’s management duties to the next generation. Cedric Tappe is responsible for the development, technology and production and Christof Schotten for the marketing and sales departments.
