The History of Rittal

German company Rittal was founded in 1961 by Rudolf Loh, following the invention of the standard enclosure, with the first model titled AE. Rittal’s manufacture of enclosures grew quickly, and three years later, the first out-of-Germany branch of the company opened in the Netherlands. Towards the end of the 1960s, more development work was culminated, with the creation of the RS large enclosure, which began production in 1969.

In the 1970s, the first big change of the company took place, as founder Rudolf Loh was replaced as CEO by son Friedhelm Loh, who is still in the role to this day. Elsewhere, the company continued to expand, opening it’s first branch in Sweden in 1971, and by 1979, several other European locations. Rittal also moved its headquarters, relocating to Herborn, a historic town in German state of Hesse.

Moving into the 1980s, the growth of Rittal continued at a rapid rate, with the company opening a new division dedicated to power distribution in 1982, and a division for climate control in 1983. The focus on enclosures wasn’t lost though, as in 1985, Rittal saw the market launch of their new PS 4000 enclosure, which after just three years had become a global standard. The geographical expansion of Rittal wasn’t slowing down either, with the first expansion away from mainland Europe seeing a subsidiary and production site opening in Ohio, USA in 1982, and another production site in the UK in 1984.

After the 80s saw expansion to the West, 1993 saw growth in the East, as Rittal opened subsidiaries in Eastern Europe and Asia. The 90s also saw upgrades to Rittal to keep up to date with changing technology, opening a brand new modern forwarding warehouse in Haiger, Germany. Production of new products continued too, with the TS 8 enclosure platform launching at the end of the century in 1999.

Moving into the new millennium, Rittal’s products continuously developed and evolved, launching the new RimatriX5 system solution for data centres in 2004, and in 2008 combining all consulting, services, and products into a new brand known as “Rittal – The System”. In 2011, Rittal celebrated their 50th birthday, whilst their TS 8 enclosure had become a huge global standard, with more than 7.7 million units in use across the world.
