The beginnings of RENK go back to 1873, when Johann Julius Renk founded a small engineering business for the mechanical production of gears in the heart of Augsburg. In 1879, the company moved to Göggingen in Augsburg, where it built RENK's headquarters that remain in use until today. In 1897, the company was converted into a stock corporation and from 1923, RENK belonged to the MAN Group. With the majority takeover of MAN by Volkswagen AG in 2011, RENK became a member of the Volkswagen Group.

In 2020, RENK has been acquired by Triton and converted into a limited liability company (LLC) in 2021.
