The family-owned company has been based in Freudenberg am Main ever since it was founded in 1897.
Once a small carpenter’s workshop, over the decades it has evolved into the international group we know today. As well as the company’s own chipboard factory in Markt Bibart, which produces the high-quality wood materials for its bedroom furniture, Rauch has four furniture production sites to its name.
Rauch actively embraces its responsibility for the environment and society, which is why the company rigorously pursues its objective of manufacturing ecologically and socially sustainable furniture.
For example, Rauch only uses wood from regional, sustainably managed forests, and makes sure that none of this scarce resource is wasted.
The Rauch Group is structured into a number of company sections under the general management of Michael Stiehl. The headquarters of the company are located in Freudenberg in the German state of Baden-Württemberg, where the ORANGE (m) and BLUE brands are manufactured. In Mastershausen, Rauch Möbelwerke manufacture all free-standing cabinets for the BLACK brand – both in either semi-solid furniture or with décor finish. The ORANGE (z) brand with its wide product range has its production site in Bürgstadt.
Markt Bibart is the location of the company's own chipboard plant – all Rauch products are manufactured from high-quality wood materials. Rauch's chipboard plant only uses fresh wood from native forests and has been awarded the PEFC certificate for sustainable forestry.
