The first injection moulding company of the Elsässer brothers was founded in 1968 in Mannheim-Rheinau. The basis for the first product line was an injection moulding machine from Krauss/Cologne, a renowned manufacturer of injection moulding machines at the time. Only injection moulded parts were produced on a contract basis.
The company was transformed by the founding of Industrie-Plastic Elsässer GmbH. The company was shared by the brothers Richard, Dieter and Helmut Elsässer.
The company moved to larger premises in Edingen-Neckarhausen. This enabled an expansion of the machine capacities and the establishment of the company's own tool shop.
was a sad year in the company's history. The co-founder of IPE, Richard Elsässer, passed away. The two remaining shareholders continued to run the company.
IPE entered the production of plastic parts for the automotive sector for the first time. As a result, the toolmaking capacities were expanded in the same year.
The company moved again, back to Mannheim. Since then, the new spacious factory facility has united all of IPE's divisions under one roof.
Dieter Elsässer left the company for health reasons. Helmut Elsässer took over the management of the entire company.
The company IPE becomes part of the ITW Group.
