INMATEC Technologies GmbH is specialised in the manufacture of high-utility, customised feedstocks. We develop and produce ready-to-process granulates that allow our customers to make injection-moulded ceramic components. The company is domiciled in Rheinbach, in the Cologne/Bonn region (Contact and Map). Our feedstock production, development division and consultancy experts for ceramic injection moulding are all located there at a single facility (Products & Services).
Service and quality are our top priorities. Prior to use, our incoming raw materials are rigorously inspected. Each feedstock batch we manufacture is subject to exhaustive quality testing. Certified according to ISO 9001:2015, we guarantee the consistent and reproducible quality of all products and services.
We make standard feedstocks and can also offer the development of customised products. Material selection, the composition of ceramic powders and binder components are tailored individually to the requirements of the component and application. INMATEC Technologies GmbH blends knowledge and experience with technical consulting on all productive aspects of the injection moulding process.
We team up with our customers to develop end-to-end component solutions for the most varied of applications and scenarios, for instance in the electronics, automotive, aeronautics & aerospace and household appliances industries. Transparent information and support are the key competencies that we uphold to build close and successful partnerships with our customers.

Introducing INMATEC – get to know our management team, feedstock experts and material specialists.
The qualified mineralogist first came into contact with ceramic injection moulding when completing his doctoral thesis in Rheinbach. It was at the local start-up and technology centre GEZ that he discovered the market niche of developing and producing commercially available feedstocks for ceramic injection moulding – which he proceeded to occupy by founding INMATEC.
Born in the United States and a former exchange student in Lisbon, Moritz focused his company on the international market from day one, which allowed him to combine his passion for travelling with professional interests. He grew up in a farming community and has preserved his enthusiasm for tractors and agricultural machinery. So it is no coincidence that he likes to compare his company with a plant that he sowed and nurtured so as to harvest its fruits for a long time to come.
She learnt the trade of selling technical products requiring significant explanation and consulting as a sales rep in the world of natural sciences. Here at INMATEC, contact with customers, maintaining the company network and the provision of technical support and assistance account for a significant part of her work. Karin is particularly passionate when it comes to educating and informing people about technical ceramics and their use in injection moulding. This is not limited to her talks and presentations for industry representatives at trade fairs and in seminars. She also visits school classes and engages in educational projects to introduce the younger generation to the material and its processing.
Away from work, Karin is happiest when perched on the back of a horse. True to her roots as a biologist, she also rears chickens and is a keen gardener.
Soon afterwards, Marvin swapped the lecture hall for a position with our company. As part of the production management team, controlling accounted for most of his work from day one. Now team leader, he is responsible for the production process – from planning and preparation to technical implementation and acceptance of the manufactured feedstocks.
Marvin finds life balance as a keen athlete. Running and swimming keep him fit for handball, his great passion.
In addition to his function as Head of Operations, Stephan also coordinates national and international projects. This requires close coordination with the entire team and strong networks outside the company as well. His work focuses mainly on the structuring and monitoring of workflows, quality assurance and analytics.
His favourite pastime away from work is spending time with his wife and children – preferably on bicycles or out hiking the hills. Jogging keeps him fit as well.
We are committed to developing the industry, even beyond our own company. Driving the development of powder injection moulding is the declared objective of INMATEC Technologies GmbH. This prompts us to collaborate with other companies in several expert committees and professional organisations, in which we have been involved for many years. These alliances enable us to continuously advance the knowledge and opportunities that the process can offer to the modern industrial sector.
INMATEC has adopted sustainable practices.
In addition to meeting the highest quality requirements for our products and services, it is also our declared goal to fulfil our responsibility towards the environment and future generations. From the perspective of sustainability, INMATEC focuses on the efficient use of resources, minimising energy consumption and on the avoidance of waste along the value chain.
Sustainable action has long since become an integral part of our daily routines – from our binder systems that ensure eco-friendly de-binding, to the recovery and recycling of residual materials during production and the shipping of feedstocks in reusable containers. We join with our partners and staff to put our goals into practice and to continue improving sustainability management.
