RENO A/S - a piece of Danish industrial history

The story begins in 1919, when S.P.M. Svendsen Smedeforretning (blacksmith business) was founded in Bjerringbro in the central part of Jutland. However, much has happened since then. Today, RENO is one of the leading manufacturers and suppliers of air compressors since 1952 and high-pressure cleaners since 1978. RENO thus bases its expertise on experience accumulated over nearly a lifetime.
