- About the company: RAUTECK is the acronym for Recycled AUToparts ECKernförde, our German hometown. Considering ecological sustainability and social commitment we turn buckle tongues into various bottle opener (FördeÖffner) and seat belts into fancy bags (Förde Taschen) – handcrafted products of great authenticity and functional as well as emotional value.

After being designated even as Europe’s JA Company of the Year 2015 in Berlin and successfully liquidating RAUTECK in the framework of the JA company program in September, twelve motivated students finally reestablished the business as a real enterprise with the legal form registered cooperative in November 2015. Since then, we completely outsourced the production of our bottle openers and expanded our business by using several ways of marketing and distribution. For the short-term future, RAUTECK will have to manage an incisive change concerning its human resources. Nevertheless, we are confident to achieve our long-term objectives such as developing new innovative and sustainable products by upcycling car items, outsourcing also the production of our bags by integrating refugees and attracting more business customers in order to reach more target groups and increase the efficiency of our distribution.
