From the past to the future

TANOS GmbH was founded in 1993 as a subsidiary of TTS Tooltechnic Systems AG & Co. KG. Developing and distributing the systainer® product range is our passion. Secure packaging and clear organization of your work materials and tools, and saving time during transportation – systainer® products provide all of these benefits and more. As the inventors of this unique, patented case system, we have created cases that can be stacked and linked together. Our concept makes a systainer® more than just a case: It's a system!
