VISIONS REALISED

BY THE ENTREPRENEUR


Jörg Rauschenberger

Modus One is an engineering company, which develops own objectives for innovative concepts, products and production facilities. Diversified manufacturing experience of Jörg Rauschenberger is the basis. In the year 1979 he took over the core company for toolmaking and sheet metal parts, which was founded in 1924. Additionally he established various companies in Baden-Wuerttemberg and Thuringia, which created innovative technical facilities and process technologies to the stage of production readiness.

 

After successful implementation of production most divisions were sold, either after joint ventures with international groups or as a management buyout, to be able to focus on the next innovation. Following the financial crisis in 2010 the supply division was abandoned after falling into insolvency.

 

Since then in new structures a concentration took place on production and sales of own products by Rauschenberger Innovations GmbH - www.clax.de - and engineering as field of activity within Modus One GmbH.
