In a special retro line made of genuine or synthetic leather, hand-sewn classics are experiencing a revival. Wolf Rüdiger uses his knowledge to provide his customers with intensive advice and service. In order to be able to optimally meet customer requirements, Albene has been producing order-specific products for a long time. As there are new things happening with regard to the finishing of tennis balls, we have decided to focus on this topic. Tennis balls as area of expertise One of the areas of expertise of Albene is tennis balls. Individually printed or patterned tennis balls are promotional messengers which unfold their full impact in the sports and recreational sector. It is also possible to provide tennis balls with all-over printing. Albene can produce tennis balls in 10 basic colours from just 500 pieces. The logo is applied using the pad printing process and the colour selection is enormous. Special Pantone colours are also possible on request. Customised manufacturing guarantees the greatest possible individuality of the products. The off fer is rounded off by the development of suitable packaging. Tennis balls are ideal promotional and merchandising items that are used not only for playing tennis but also as massage or dog balls. Depending on the application, various rubber mixtures with different bouncing characteristics are used in the production. Dog balls are made of recycled material. The particularly high-quality tennis balls tested by the ITF (International Tennis Federation) can also be obtained from Albene. They are available in yellow and printed in one or two colours. They are available from 6,000 pieces, packed in 2,000 cans, each containing 3 balls. Consulting is top priority The experienced partners with whom Albene has been cooperating for years ensure that the quality of the balls and the finishing meet the highest demands. Wolf Rüdiger frequently convinces himself on site that all manual and technical processes correspond to his ideas and produce the desired results. Over the past 25 years, Albene has successfully established itself in the market with reliability, high quality requirements and service competence. Customer advice is of paramount importance because it ensures that customer-specific production is successful. “I personally look after my customers, large and small alike. If someone needs only 50 balls, he receives the same advice and service as a major customer,” says Wolf Rüdi- The first step towards a tennis ball: The hemispheres made of rubber are produced in these moulds. Before the hemispheres are joined together, they are filled with chemical substances which react under hot steam and thus build up a higher pressure in the ball. The stamped felt pieces are glued onto the finished natural rubber balls. The felt pieces are then bonded with white natural rubber. ger. < Wolf Rüdiger with his associate in front of the production facility. 83
