REINER® History - More than 100 years of experience
Passion for our products since 1913
REINER® - based in Furtwangen in the Black Forest, family business with more than 100 years of history, globally networked employer for more than 200 highly qualified employees. A fascinating success story - "Made in Germany".
Ernst REINER® was an inventor and visionary with the courage to found his own company as a handicraft business in the field of precision mechanics in 1913. After only a few years, he began the core business that is still successful today: the development and manufacture of hand stamps.
After the end of the war decades, the development of the medium-sized company picks up speed rapidly, supported by increasing technological progress: In 1950, the first electric stamps are manufactured, followed 20 years later by the entry into the field of OCR printers for banks, which at the same time is the starting signal for the continuous introduction of electronics.
As a result, REINER® has been able to develop steadily and expand its market position not only in the German market, but worldwide. In addition to the high-quality stamps, the newly developed marking devices and precision parts at the highest level of quality contributed to this. Thus, the family-owned company was able to quickly make a name for itself internationally - with highly qualified employees and without losing its roots in the Black Forest.
