Let the games begin
Reno was born in the city of Barcelona, although it later moved its activities to Cerdanyola del Vallès, a city with a great hockey tradition and home to Cerdanyola Club d’Hoquei (the Cerdanyola Hockey Club) - a real national hockey veteran and organiser of the legendary “24 Hores d’Hoquei” (“24 Hours of Hockey”). In its early days, it made racquets, skis and wooden golf sticks, moving soon after into the production of hockey sticks.

The stick brand
Reno quickly became the benchmark brand for roller hockey -“the stick brand”- and signed a partnership agreement with FC Barcelona, an agreement that it still maintains, making it its main provider

Throughout all these years, FC Barcelona has used Reno equipment and has won all imaginable titles, with the Club going down in the history books of hockey.

Where there’s hockey, there’s Reno
Reno expanded its influence, working closely with extraordinary teams like H.C. Cerdanyola, C.E. Noia Freixenet, C.P. Vic, H.C. Palau de Plegamans, Igualada H.C., F.C. Porto, R.C.D. Espanyol, U.D. Oliveirense and the Spanish national team among others.
The brand was also known for its co-organisation of Christmas matches for the Catalan team in Palau Blaugrana and the All Star games in OK Liga. It was precisely this drive to be side by side with clubs and players from all over that allowed Reno to constantly improve its products.

At the forefront of hockey

Through the support and confidence of players and hockey clubs, Reno has maintained an enterprising spirit and keeps on growing, broadening its range with protective gear for players and goalkeepers, boots and other textiles, and opening a new production centre in Fiães (Portugal), joining forces with the one in Cerdanyola del Vallès.

Always determined, non-conformist and passionate.
