About Us

In 1993, TANOS was founded in Germany to develope and distribute the systainer® case system.
With growing demand in the US, TANOS Inc. was founded 2018 in Charlotte, NC to distribute the systainer® system through America. We established a wide dealer network through the States as well as industrial partners, who use our case system as a packaging solution for their products.

The systainer® was developed as a result of the need to be able to securely pack work materials and tools, to organize them comprehensively and, above all, to transport them in a timely way. This resulted in a unique, patented case system, in which the individual systainer® units can be stacked and combined with one another.

The original systainer® can only be obtained from TANOS and we have now sold more than 26 million units!

Our core product - the systainer®

Your systainer® system offers an endless range of potential applications, in many different industries and sectors. Clearly, systainer® products are a popular choice in trades and industrial applications. But systainer® are also an all-around system built to handle specialized demands and requirements. Innovative developments, accessories, variables, a variety of internal features and easy linking options make the systainer® a smart system for your needs.

We respect the environment!

It starts with our product – the systainer®. Our case system guarantees environmentally-friendly, reusable packaging that doesn't add to the mountains of trash polluting our planet. The systainer® is constructed from 100% recyclable ABS plastic. This makes it long-lasting, efficient and rugged; many of our customers have been working with a systainer® for decades.

Our company building was also constructed with a variety of climate protection features. For example, we use regenerative geothermal energy to heat and cool our administrative building. The heating and cooling concept is supported by concrete core temperature control, in which the temperature is regulated through guiding heat and cooling directly into the concrete components of the floors or ceiling slabs. In addition, decentralized electronic instantaneous water heaters provide hot water on demand, eliminating energy-intensive hot water storage.
