Better than the rest, right from the start

Planing inevitably produces chips and shavings. And where there are chips and shavings, Ruwac industrial vacuum cleaners and central vacuum systems are never far away. Since our company was founded more than forty years ago, we have consistently taken a lead in our industry. The iconic red – and now also black – Ruwac industrial vacuum cleaners are some of the most reliable portable and central vacuum systems to be found.

No matter what the material – liquid or solid, inert or explosive – or the application, we can provide the ideal vacuum solution. The clever modular design of our portable industrial vacuum cleaners, patented inventions like the foot bar for dust-free emptying and customised solutions for high-performance central vacuum systems all go to show that quality and practicality are our top priorities.

When Siegfried Wagner and Manfred Runge established Ruwac in 1976, they were in complete agreement about their objective: to produce the best vacuum cleaners. Vacuum cleaners that would cope with any type of material and could be used in the harshest environments. So there was no room for compromise, right from the start. Today, just as they were back then, each and every Ruwac product is produced according to six simple, yet effective principles:


Handmade in Riemsloh

If it says Ruwac on the outside, then it's Ruwac on the inside too. That's because every part – for the smallest vacuum cleaner to the biggest extraction plant – undergoes an internal manufacturing inspection in Riemsloh.


Individual design

Of course, you can buy a vacuum cleaner from us. But not until we know exactly what you need it for. That's why we offer solutions. Not just vacuum cleaners.


Top-quality material

A good vacuum cleaner vacuums well. So far, so good. A Ruwac vacuum cleaner vacuums well and just keeps on going. That's why we decided at an early stage to use GRP for the housing: durable, lightweight and indestructible.


The right filters

At the heart of any vacuum cleaner is the filter. The choice of filter depends on the particle size and the physical and chemical properties of the material being vacuumed. And as we only ever settle for the best, we work exclusively with filter specialists.


Research and development

The industry is moving forward all the time, but Ruwac makes sure it keeps pace with the changes. We are constantly engaged in research and development to ensure we can offer the best solutions, no matter what the requirement.



1 plus 5 equals 6: Ruwac's impressive quality standards. We started out 40 years ago with the intention of building the best vacuum cleaners. We're still doing that today.
