Renata (Renata SA) is a world leading manufacturer and supplier of primary and secondary microbatteries and battery solutions. The company is headquartered in Itingen, near Basel.
In 1952, Kurt Zehntner founded the company to manufacture components for wristwatches. Precision and reliability have played a key role at Renata since its founding. Originally, Renata's employees manufactured high-precision calibrated balances for mechanical watches.
In 1974, Renata began research leading to the creation of the first Renata button cell batteries. What seems simple today, at the time presented many challenges.
They have been part of the Swatch SA Group since 1982.
In the beginning, they focused on the quartz watch industry. Today, they develop and manufacture innovative, affordable products of high technical quality, both for wristwatches and for industrial applications.
They pay special attention to solutions that save resources and respect the environment.
