Embedded Software Engineer @ Renson

Renson has been creating advanced products and systems for a better and healthier life for over 110 years. The beating heart and knowledge center are located in Waregem, and the producer, from the eponymous family, has an extensive international production and distribution network (active in over 83 countries). Paul Renson, as the 4th generation, leads the company, transforming it from a small player in window and door hardware to a global player in the niche of ventilation, sun protection, facade cladding, and outdoor living. The company now boasts a turnover of 320 million euros and 1300 employees across the entire Renson Group (including Renson, Arlu, E-Safe, and Corrad).

The company has locations in Waregem, Gent, Kruisem, Kruishoutem, Bologna (Italy), Dallas (USA), Maidstone (UK), Shanghai (China), and Perth (Australia).

Since 2014, the company has experienced an average annual growth of 20%, including acquisitions. This success is largely attributed to strict energy standards for homes, making ventilation a necessity. In addition to natural and energy-efficient ventilation, the company's baseline, "Creating healthy spaces," also encompasses night cooling and sun protection in the summer.

Since 2010, the 'outdoor' division has been added. What started with terrace coverings has evolved into a range for 'outdoor living,' including carports, facade cladding, and parcel mailboxes. For this division, Renson established a new production site with a showroom and offices in Kruisem.
