Renlaw will keep producing and distributing our tools during the Covid-19 lockdown period.


Established in 1985, Renlaw is a family-owned business which was founded by Walter Brunner, a Swiss toolmaker, who saw the need for a quality Machine Knife Manufacturer in Cape Town Over the years we have built up a loyal customer-base, and with our reputation for excellence we have grown to be a leader in our field, expanding both our staff compliment and our premises. A few years ago, we opened a second branch in Johannesburg due to ever-increasing demand from companies in Gauteng and neighbouring countries.
