Greiner GmbH & Co. KG

Our central® strapping tools have been standing for quality, simple handling and reliability for more than 50 years. When the production of the central® strapping tools was taken up by Greiner GmbH & Co. KG. in 1984, we have made it our task to further consolidate and improve their quality standard.

central® strapping tools have been produced since 1958 at Esslingen approx. 20 km from Stuttgart, the Baden-Wuerttemberg capital.

We produce strapping equipment for processing steel, plastic, textile, and composite strap permitting any user to find the tool most suitable for his packaging and shipment securing jobs.

This formulation has a determining influence on all sectors of the strapping tool generation from the construction via production to the distribution of our products.

central® strapping tools are distributed through a world-wide dealer net ensuring that the purchaser finds a competent contact on the spot when he buys a new tool. Needless to say that our partners also offer the service for all our strapping tools as well as the supply of the needed strap and complementing packaging materials plus additional accessories.
