REINER SCT specializes in security for the digital world. We offer readers for chip cards – especially for secure online banking, terminals for merchants and tradesmen for girocard payments as well as access protection for PC workstations. With the new card readers for the electronic ID card, REINER SCT is paving the way for the innovative use of IT in the public domain. Intuitive time recording and access control systems for small and medium-sized enterprises are another mainstay of the company's activities.

Since 1997, REINER SCT has been developing and manufacturing in Germany and offers all services from a single source including sales and end-customer service. The company operates globally and is part of the REINER Group that has been family-owned since 1913. It has its headquarters in Furtwangen in the Black Forest and employs 50 people.


At REINER SCT, highly qualified software and hardware engineers work hand in hand. This efficient symbiosis between computer science and technology is the foundation of our comprehensive know-how that ranges from chip card technology and the latest security standards to the programming of innovative software solutions – the basic prerequisite for the competent development of high-quality chip card readers for online banking, digital signatures and the new ID card as well as high-performance time recording and access control systems for small and medium-sized companies.

We know from experience that the long-term and trusting cooperation with our customers and partners is still the most effective way to achieve long-term success. That's why we offer not only the development and production of high-quality products, but also the appropriate logistics and nationwide support.

At REINER SCT, we attach particular importance to pleasant and effective work. And this not only has a positive effect on the work environment: Thanks to a flat organizational structure, our team is always able to react quickly and flexibly to new developments on the market. This is probably why almost all German banks, well-known distributors and system resellers as well as popular online stores and mail-order companies market our products.
