History

Ringmetall AG was founded in 1997 under the name H.P.I. Holding AG. The corporation, which acts as a Holding, acquired, founded and sold numerous companies from 1998 onwards. In 2007, the company’s IPO was conducted in the free market of the German Stock Exchange, followed by a change of the Entry Standard of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange in 2012.

As a result of changes in the corporation’s Board of Directors in 2011 and 2014, the corporation increasingly focused on the expansion of its business with industrial packaging and the handling of industrial goods.

In 2015, the Group changed its name to Ringmetall AG, which at the same time marks the completion of the repositioning of the company as a specialist supplier in the packaging industry. With the acquisition of the US company Self Industries at the end of 2015, Ringmetall underlined this approach.
