Pioneer in Fill/Finish solutions

Over 100 years of company history
ROTA – our family company was founded in 1909 and is still successfully managed as such with personal initiative and responsible management.
ROTA has always been about developing its own ideas – the dynamics of creativity and independence, in fact pioneering spirit. We are characterized by independent entrepreneurship, identifying ourselves to the highest degree with what we do. This guarantees quality, sustainability and ultimately our continued success.

ROTA Verpackungstechnik and Rota Yokogawa
From 1991 to 1995, an initial collaboration turned into an increasingly close cooperation, until finally the flowmeter division was gradually integrated into the Japanese Yokogawa Group.
In 1995, the packaging technology division was re-established in parallel with initially just under 30 employees as ROTA Verpackungstechnik GmbH & Co. KG, where the successful tradition of the family-run business was continued and is still being expanded today. From 1998, the company’s history continued in the newly constructed building complex in Öflinger Straße in Wehr. Thus it comes that since then there are two companies with common roots and similar name in the place.

ROTA Verpackungstechnik GmbH & Co. KG
Today we have 130 dedicated employees, some of whom have been with the company for several generations. As a medium-sized company, we see ourselves in a position to react flexibly, quickly and competently at all times according to customer individual requirements.
The large assembly hall, completed in 2020, forms a stable foundation to secure our innovative strength for the future.

  • Our high-quality machines are known for their durability and flexibility in use. For all ROTA machines, change-over takes place quickly and in just a few steps – mostly without tools.
  • Our customers appreciate us as a reliable partner. It is our personal concern to support our customers with individual ideas and long-term solutions of the highest quality. In direct exchange with each other, we jointly succeed in integrating all specific requirements and special customer wishes.

Joachim Delhey (Production & IT) and Andreas Balke (Development & Sales) represent the company as managing directors:

Joachim Delhey


As a family owned company, ROTA is a central part of my life; I grew up with ROTA.

As a child, my brother and I played in the halls on weekends.

Watching what our team has accomplished over the past 25 years fills me with pride, and it gives me satisfaction to make my personal contribution to the company’s continued evolution.

My daily drive? – To build machines that help people get and stay healthy. There could hardly be anything more rewarding.

Andreas Balke

I see my task as reconciling the constancy and values of the family-run company with a spirit of optimism and change due to changing market requirements and the targeted growth.

With the professional and extremely dedicated employees behind us, we are mastering the challenges of the future together. To further develop our global ROTA brand, we are jointly pursuing our goals of modularity, automation, deep customer engagement and modern channel management.

My motivation is to bring ROTA steadily forward and thus to ensure security and stability in the future for our employees and their families as well.
