Repair Care International first introduced the concept of epoxy technology to repair joinery in 1989. Formerly known as Window Care Systems, the company was a result of years of product development. The original founders, with their innovative approach to timber repair, changed the attitude to long-term maintenance of joinery. Within a year, the concept was so successful, a sales office was opened in the UK.
In 1991 we built our own testing station at an altitude of 1,075m in an extreme climate in Austria, giving an ideal environment for assessing both substrates and repair systems. The following year, in collaboration with several independent institutes, special testing techniques were developed for timber repairs.
In 2006, the company name changed to Repair Care International and we invested in our own production facilities and a modern laboratory for research, development and quality control. Early in 2007, we opened a sales office in Berlin reinforcing our position as the market leader in Europe. Our confidence in our products was underpinned by being the first company to introduce a full 10-year guarantee for both the repaired substrate and the coating system. Today, we are the global leader in the market for timber refurbishment. timber maintenance.
“Whether it is product improvement or innovation, contact with our customers is essential. Therefore, we not only carry out the most diverse laboratory tests, but we also get into the market, to experience real projects. There is so much for us to learn and our advantage lies in our knowledge.”
