Ringmetall SE 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 was renamed Ringmetall AG, which at the same time represented the repositioning of the company as a specialist supplier in the packaging industry. Ringmetall underpinned this approach with the acquisition of Berger US formerly Self Industries (2015) and the German-based companies Nittel (2018), Tesseraux (2019) and Rhein-Plast (2022).

In 2021, the transformation from a German stock corporation to a European Company (SE) took place.
