Perfect teamwork, top quality – that’s Tribus

Alexander Rinner, Rinner Speck, Laces (Alto Adige/Italia)

The Rinner village butcher’s shop in Latch was founded in 1955. When son Alexander joined the family business in the 1980s, he had a clear vision for his future career: Fascinated by the production of speck (cured, lightly smoked leg of pork) and smoked foods, he recognised the immense potential which this sector held for the growth of the company. Even at that time, Tribus supplied machinery for speck production. “Tribus have always been a skilled partner and have always understood our request and found solutions to them,” Rinner recalls. He passed on his love of speck production to his son Max, who is production manager today. And with him, the company has succeeded in blending tried-and-tested tradition with the very latest in production technology.

In 2019, a new, larger production premises was built. “It was evident to us that we would, once again, entrust Tribus with building our maturing and smoking chambers, and also for our new speck presses, cutting and washing equipment,” says Alexander. Tribus was involved in the construction of the new production plant right from the initial planning stage. “It was perfect teamwork, from designing the systems through to installation. Top quality, custom-designed equipment and an open ear for our every request. We are extremely satisfied with the results, and production in our new premises is optimal,” says Alexander Rinner, as he looks to the future with optimism.
