The history of Tanis

Coming from a family with a sweet tooth, Leo and René Tanis were destined to follow in their father's footsteps. Born, raised and educated in the sugar confectionery industry, they founded their own company in 1995. Leo and René went their separate ways, but the family history continues. In 2008 Martijn Tanis and in 2012 Victor Tanis, both sons of Leo, joined the company.

Tanis Confectionery works with a small but highly specialized team. Tanis Confectionery has grown into a global supplier of total process solutions and high-tech equipment for the confectionery market. Currently, Tanis Confectionery supplies more than 350 factories within the industry worldwide.

Each one of these is designed for a specific process. Tanis Confectionery plants have been installed all over the world. Tanis has become well-known throughout the industry and is synonymous with quality and professionalism.

Experience, a sweet tooth and state of the art know-how: together they will take your business to the next level!
