A team from practice

Master craftsmen, engineers, technicians and creative minds

We are developers and manufacturers of tools, machines and mechanical solutions for wood professionals

History, development and career

RUWI was founded in 2000 by Reiner Ruggaber. As a master carpenter, he developed a milling table to optimize the work processes in his own carpentry workshop.
The team has grown since then and the products have expanded. Due to the passion for developing new solutions, the range has grown and today consists of 10 different product groups in wood and metal processing with over 500 items. RUWI is located in the Black Forest and is based there with lean production. With regional suppliers and partner companies, only the final assembly of the products takes place in-house. RUWI is represented by various trading partners in different countries, with the focus on the German-speaking area.
