Riensch & Held GmbH & Co. KG and the teeli® brand
Riensch & Held GmbH & Co. KG was founded by A. Riensch in 1845 and gradually became a remarkable trading house among the Americas and Germany. In the 1990’s decade the firm successively focused its activity on the worldwide growing market of household filters.
Through its series of patents and registered designs, Riensch & Held has positioned itself as an inventive manufacturer. Whereas it once imported coffee and exported machinery, it now holds the leading role in the manufacturing of biodegradable tea filters and covers a whole range of further household filters and tools. The teeli® brand heads a product range including disposable as well as permanent filters.
The turtle has been the firm´s trademark even before 1900´s, symbolizing quality and sustainability.
