Rädlinger primus line GmbH is an internationally oriented enterprise with headquarters in Cham in the Upper Palatinate.
The family-managed, medium-sized company produces the Primus Line® system for the trenchless rehabilitation of pressure pipes which has been developed in-house.
In doing so, it relies on the know-how of its employees, which has grown over decades, going back to the beginning of development in 1996 and absorbing many influences from research on the way to market maturity in 2001. This knowledge also gave rise to the innovative plant for the vertical production of the liner and the logistics warehouse ideally suited to its handling.
With permanent branches in the United States, Canada, Australia and China, Primus Line moves even closer to its customers and partners around the world.
Primus Line is part of the high-performing Werner Rädlinger Group with eight national and international locations. Apart from the trenchless pipe rehabilitation, the company group acts in the fields of machine construction and steel construction (Rädlinger Maschinen- und Stahlbau), electrical engineering (Rädlinger energy) and vocational training (BBZ Berufsbildungszentrum).
Josef Rädlinger sen. laid the first stone in 1963, starting his entrepreneurial activity in the building industry. With the central idea "Nothing is impossible" and one single rear dumper with two axes, Rädlinger's success story started more than 50 years ago. The constant exploration of new branches and business segments led to the continuous development into a successful company group, from which emerged the Werner Rädlinger Group in 2019.
