Process Equipment

Cleaning Systems and Solvent Recovery

D.W.RENZMANN Apparatebau GmbH are a medium-sized company that develops, manufactures and sells cleaning and solvent recovery systems for the graphic arts industry and the paint producing industry. They are the market leader in the graphic arts industry and one of the world's leading suppliers to the paint industry. Renzmann equipment can be found on all continents of the world. High quality standards have earned Renzmann a good reputation around the globe.

Following the merger with the Swiss company Riobeer AG Cleaning Solutions, D.W. Renzmann is now able to offer customers the widest range of washing machines and distillation units by one manufacturer.

Thanks to their decades of experience in these special markets, Renzmann are able to offer customers all the support they need. Whether you need help applying for an operating license, planning your washing or distillation room, evaluating the economic efficiency of equipment or finding the best cleaners and cleaning methods, the qualified experts at D.W. Renzmann can provide advice in all areas.

Washing machines for the paint producing industry

Renzmann machines and units conform to the relevant European regulations and offer maximum health and safety protection for the operator. Washing machines are used to clean cans, buckets, barrels, containers and shipping containers.

Distillation units

Distillation units recover contaminated solvents and washing agents. The distillate is as effective as new solvent and can be reintroduced into the solvent circuit of the cleaning system. This contribution to a healthy environment also has significant economic benefits as most distillation units recoup their costs in a very short time.

All distillation units can be combined with a washing machine and an appropriate washing agent supply system to form a closed circuit.

Colour Genie are the exclusive agents for DW Renzmann GmbH in the UK and Ireland for the paint industry.

  • We systematically approach each brief by applying best practice standards to every stage - from a projects conception through to measuring its success.
  • The devil is in the detail, so we identify issues, analyse audiences, explore relevant trends, research competitors and use customer feedback to gain insight and plan far-reaching strategies.
  • Our collective approach will then generate ideas that, depending on requirements, can be realised across any communication channels, from instore point of sale to online advertising.

New Product Development

Manufacturer and Distributor Graphic


Markets become increasingly competitive but so does the scope for expansion. Manufacturers have the ability to produce new an innovative paints and coatings but sometimes lack the skills to expand into new markets, both in terms of product sector and geography, without having to commit to additional manpower. We can help to implement a new venture and provide ongoing support as required.


Whether your market is business to business or business to consumer, distributors and retailers are often presented with challenges from their customers. This most commonly revolves around the need to provide a solution to a problem or take advantage of new opportunities. Our experience with a wide cross-section of manufacturers and distributors in the UK and overseas means we can facilitate business connections between both parties and effectively link supply with demand.
