Jakob Winter – since 1886

We are one of the leading European manufacturers of musical instrument cases, gun cases, custom cases and moldings. Our headquarter is based in Rüsselsheim am Main (Hesse) and in Marienberg (Saxony) we manufacture our products and ship them globally


Our technology revolves around the topics of cases & molded parts. Here, our focus is on compression molding, thermoforming and injection molding. Based on these production methods, we then process the created parts further. This is done first using water jet cutting, sawing or punching. In the case production then follow many more manual steps to produce a complete case.


For over 20 years, we have been conducting research in the area of ​​bio-plastics and have made these our main materials. Here we process natural fiber reinforced nonwoven composites as well as bio-granulates. In addition, we manufacture products from conventional plastics and form parts from polyester fleece.
