The tannery is founded
by Johann Rendenbach jr.
After 39 succesful years of business Johann Rendenbach leaves the tannery to his son.
The successor begins to modernise the profitable enterprise, installing a steam engine and mechanical shredder to rationalise preparation of tanning materials.
During an air raid the company buildings are completely destroyed.
The tannery takes up production again. Tanning can recommence in the original oak tanning pits, which have survived the war unscathed.
Hans Rendenbach takes over management and continues to back traditional oak-bark ground-tanning.
Under Hanns Rendenbach jr. the company goes into the 4th generation.
Demand for die-cut products necessitates the addition of a cutting workshop.
Laser technology is applied to optimise quality control.
The outstanding quality of Rendenbach products is established worldwide. Due to the demand for pre-assembled units, Hanns Rendenbach expands the firm to include a modern production line.
The Rendenbach tannery undergoes certification.
