RADO production sites and divisions
RADO manufactures rubber compounds based on all common rubber types (around 20 to 25 different types). Depending on the rubber type, which gives a mix its distinctive character, RADO differentiates between three groups:
- Mixes based on fluoro rubber
- Mixes based on silicone rubber
- Mixes based on all other rubber types
RADO also operates three separate divisions corresponding to these groups. Each division has its own production facilities, all of which are based in Radevormwald:
RADO's subsidiary Viernheim Rubber GmbH (VRG)
RADO's subsidiary Viernheim Rubber GmbH (VRG) is also part of the General Compounding division in principle.
However, the main function of the Viernheim plant is to provide a backup solution. In the rare event of a production stoppage in Radevormwald due to an emergency situation, production could be transferred to VRG and continued.
