Are you looking for a reliable, committed and innovative partner? Then you have found it.
We do not want to shine with words, but with deeds. Just as we have been doing since the company was founded in 1994. Since that time we have been offering innovative solutions for complex technical tasks.
At the beginning as a one-man business, in the meantime as a company with a total of about 95 highly motivated employees.
We have grown with our customers without losing our strength: fast and competent solutions from a single source on the basis of highly individual support.
This was the philosophy when rbi GmbH was founded. And it will remain so
Why rbi
With us you will find both the engineering knowledge and the craftsmanship, all from one source. What do you get out of it? Less work, more competence.
You don't have to turn to different companies for the different development steps. You can rely on our networked knowledge.
From the first to the last step. From development to implementation and support. And it's not always about reinventing technology - it's about finding individual solutions for your task.
The basis for this is cybernetics, the science of the structure of complex systems. That sounds very theoretical. rbi is the practical answer to it. Our strength is to design these complex systems in a practical way.
Success Story
To explain the philosophy of rbi GmbH, it is best to tell its story. It is also the story of Roman Berner. Some think he is a Swabian tinkerer. Others for a progressive spirit. And for some he is above all a competent business partner. They are right. Roman Berner is a man with many facets.
Even if the tinkerer still predominates when the graduate engineer founded the company in 1994. His first company headquarters alone proves this: the basement of his parents' house. There he has an office, test laboratory and workshop in one.
Right from the start, customers appreciate his friendly manner, his creativity, his broad knowledge - and especially his solution-oriented competence. This has not changed until today.
In the meantime, rbi GmbH has long since moved to a new location and employs about 80 people who develop, experiment and above all: find fast and innovative solutions for their customers. The one-man business has become a sustainable company.
True to the motto: Continue the tried and tested, develop the tried and tested further - and be open to new ways.
