REMS must be superior. 

Christian Foll, Company Founder

REMS products have been synonymous with pipe working since their foundation in 1909. Because REMS are known for their highly durable products, quality control systems, and technical innovation, their products remain a popular choice for the MEP trades.

Through the application of modern construction and development techniques, the quality of REMS products has been at the fore from the beginning: Safe use, robust design, simple operation, durability.



When we bring tools and equipment on to our hire fleet, we consider customer feedback and customer demand.

  • What brands do customers like to work with?
  • What tools do they prefer for particular tasks?
  • What do they expect from a tool?

We get both positive feedback and specific requests for REMS equipment from our MEP customers.

We like that REMS products are robust and built to last. This is because, as a hire company it is essential that the tools we hire out to our customers are reliable – the last thing we want is to have to replace equipment in the middle of a job because it has broken down.

REMS have their own heat treatment shop that results in components that are resilient, robust with long- term durability. These are the very things we consider when we are looking at tools and equipment for our hire portfolio.

In addition, REMS are also famous for their comprehensive quality control system and their high safety standards.
