Renapur Ltd was founded in 1994 when we started to distribute our now famous leather care product – Renapur Leather Balsam in the UK and abroad. This wonderful product truly took off with the British public and the Company has gone from strength to strength ever since, introducing Renapur Leather Cleaner to the range followed by our Renapur Hi-Shine most recently.
With over 1.2 million pots of Renapur Leather Balsam sold in the UK alone, and many more than that overseas, our leather care products can be found in households and businesses all around the World, from Europe, Scandinavia, Australia and South Africa to the USA and Canada. Renapur has also been a huge hit in Japan for many years and sales are currently taking off in China.
By far the most common comment we get from existing customers is “It does what it says on the pot”, and the comment we receive the most from new customers is “It was recommended by a friend”.
People often ask us the origin of the name Renapur.
Renapur Leather Balsam was invented in 1988 by Mr Volker Schindler in Bavaria southern Germany. Realising he had something really special he wondered what to call it. He decided to name it for his wife Renate ie RENA and added the German word PUR (pure/clean) hence the name RENAPUR was born.
Whilst Renapur Ltd in the UK owns the trademark Renapur in most countries of the world where the product is sold we still honour our long standing relationship and very close friendship with the Schindler family who manufacture all Renapur leather care products for us to this day.
