Founded in 1992 in Erkheim/Germany, today RAICO Bautechnik’s headquarters are located in Pfaffenhausen near Mindelheim. The company is rooted in metal construction and in the production of conservatories. In 1995, the company took the important step to transforming itself into a system vendor designing and distributing glazing systems. From aluminium windows to highly complex façade structures, RAICO provides system solutions which can be perfectly adapted to the individual features and requirements of any project. In line with the company motto ‘The Professional’s Profile’, the products from Pfaffenhausen will be found in many outstanding architectural highlights of our time, such as museums, hotels, modern event arenas, airport terminals, and many more buildings.

One of the most important enterprises in the region, the company at present employs more than 160 people, 13 %  being apprentices to be trained in nine different formal professions.

Consistent innovation management in combination with the target-oriented geographical extension of sales activities will continue to determine the strategy of RAICO Bautechnik, and will thus ensure the constant over-average growth of the company also in the future.
