As name-giver Theodor Reintjes founded a small mechanical workshop in Emmerich am Rhein in 1879, it was hardly foreseeable that this workshop would create an international group of companies with more than 500 employees worldwide, nine subsidiaries and numerous sales and service partners. Maritime propulsion systems and industrial gear units for steam and gas turbines and compressors, for example, have long since been produced at the production site in Hameln.
Research & Development
Constant research and development work has made REINTJES what it is today: a specialist in the field of drive technology who has a solution for every special customer requirement. In 2009, the company decided to give even more room to innovation and set up its own test hall on the factory premises.
In 1962, the non-profit Eugen REINTJES Foundation was founded, in which the REINTJES GmbH is since then. The purpose of the foundation is the promotion of health and social work in the city of Hameln. For example, the Initiative "Family in the Center" is run by the Eugen Reintjes Foundation: Located in the Eugen REINTJES House in downtown Hameln, the initiative is part of a network of cooperation partners, citizens and especially families in a variety of social matters supported.
REINTJES Company Daycare „Kleiner Eugen“
Working at REINTJES meant working in a family business for a long time. And that, although on the part of the company founder Eugen Reintjes no offspring found who wanted to continue the business. In 1961, Reintjes therefore decided to found the Eugen-REINTJES Foundation with the purpose of promoting health and social care in the city of Hameln, which REINTJES GmbH has been in possession of ever since. Today, the "family business" REINTJES starts with the very small ones - the company's own day care center enables both REINTJES employees a better reconciliation of families and work, as well as other families from Hamelin.
