RINGER History

An austrian family business over decades!

RINGER was founded by our mother and grandmother Stefanie Ringer. In 1944 she opened a forge in the Upper Austrian town of Vöcklabruck with a staff of four. After the sudden and far to early death of her husband Josef in 1949 the oldest son Franz entered the business. Soon his brothers Isidor and Franz followed. The three of them developed RINGER KG to a successful and reliable partner of the austrian construction business. 

The international success story of RINGER began with the new production site in the town of Regau. The next generation entered the business with Stefanie´s grandsons Peter, Markus and Thomas. All of them had grown up within the family business and with a strong feeling of familiy bonds. Traditions and values of previous generations define the management manners of the new generation.

Customers in more than 50 countries all over the world rely on RINGER.
