1923 - 2015 = over 90 years of RENNER-Quality


“Tradition is not a cushion to rest on, but is merely a foundation for constant renewal.”

Experience and innovation has turned us into what we are today: a forward-thinking company with a commitment to our past and traditions.

RENNER evolved from a traditional craftsmanship to a modern internationally operating enterprise. From simple water buckets to complex waste disposal containers, we offer a large range of products that are single to costume manufactured.  Countless achievements have allowed RENNER to thieve in the market place.

Since the establishment of the company, RENNER has been operated out of the same location and has been a family-owned business for four generations.

The previous success of the RENNER is an obligation to the company today. We pledge to continue to maintain our excellent reputation by delivering solid quality products. Our business has over 50 employees, many of which were trained and educated within our company.
