Trust in experience: the GRENKE Group.

The GRENKE story began in the southern German town of Baden-Baden. Wolfgang Grenke saw an untapped market in office communication equipment leasing and founded his business in 1978. We have since grown into a group of companies offering leasing, bank and factoring services across the European market.


GRENKE was converted to a public limited company in December 1997, and was traded on the stock market for the first time in April 2000. Since March 2003, GRENKE AG has been listed on the SDAX exchange. Throughout these developments, the organisation has remained true to its original philosophy and strategic concept.

The company’s long-term rating is BBB+ with a stable outlook and a short-term rating of A2. This has remained unchanged since 2003. It underlines the stability of our business model and the sustainable success of our strategy.

Leasing remains our core business, however, and GRENKE is a market leader in the small-ticket IT market. The reason for this is simple. We know what is important to small and mid-sized enterprises like yours – personal advice and assistance, tailor-made financing and service models - and a streamlined organization with efficient processes that allow us to manage contracts for even very low-value items. These core beliefs inspired our company philosophy at its inception, they gave us our competitive edge, and they will continue to drive the GRENKE Group in the future. Whether for leasing, bank services, or factoring – we are committed to supporting SMEs.

Consistently excellent service is how we repay customers for putting their trust in us. At GRENKE, we are there whenever and wherever you need us – throughout Europe.
