The four main business areas at a glance…
Both premium brands of HBS GmbH, atento and RUKU, comprise a wide range of products which complement each other in the best possible way. On 1 October 2017, the company decided to sell the total product range under the name RUKUevent, thereby only focusing on one brand name.
Our RUKU Klappmöbelmanufaktur, situated in the Bavarian city Illertissen, looks back on the experiences of the saw and gypsum mill, which was founded by Rudolf Kurz in 1852. The brand RUKU was named after him – as a combination of his first and last name. The mill gradually developed into a successful, family-run wood processing enterprise.
Later, the sector of folding tables and benches was spun off from the family business and we took over both the production of folding furniture and the brand in 2014. We adhere continuously to the quality standards established by Rudolf Kurz.
The company HBS GmbH was spun off from Otmar Schmitt GmbH in 1993 – this was the time of birth for one of the most significant German enterprises in the tent and promotion sector. 25 years of experience, comprehensive know-how and a never-ending innovative spirit have flown into each and every atento canopy tent. Since 2014, atento and RUKU folding furniture have belonged together and will appear as a single brand, RUKUevent, from 2017.
After successfully establishing the beer tent sets at renowned breweries throughout Germany, the step to our next product line was not far away: the RUKUevent beer stands. Here, our experience in the production of beer tent fittings and folding pavilions merge and complement each other to create a robust and individually tailored quality product.
For 25 years we have been dealing with the production of individual advertising media in the form of customizable canopy tents. Since 2018, we have been using this knowledge and the associated experience to produce a further, highly effective product line: The inflatable advertising media from RUKUevent! State-of-the-art 3D technologies enable an individual design of your air-filled unique advertising medium.
Our main focus in this product segment is also on the most careful processing, highest material quality and a maximum of individualisation. Effective, efficient, gigantic – our inflatable advertising media.
