RENK. Our company. Your advantages.

RENK’s products and services are consistently tailored to the needs of our customers. Absolute precision, commitment, and speed are the basic prerequisites for efficiency and the capacity to act, especially in sensitive business areas. This commitment to the highest quality standards is what sets apart each and every subsidiary and company in the RENK Group around the world. Their flexibility, willingness to cooperate, and technical understanding enable them to communicate with customers and provide systems advice as partners. RENK has been defining standards and what is technically possible for many years in four strategic business units.
