RIGIS overfill prevention device

The company is situated in the heart of the Swiss watch and clock industry renowned for its sense of detail and precision: this was the basis for the success of the overflow prevention device.

Other industries, notably the oil industry, became interested in the product very quickly attracted by its efficiency thanks to a simple operating principle and very precise manufacturing perfected by Mr Josef RIEGER.

Previous Self Climat brochure

The product was introduced onto the French market by Self Climat in 1978 and immediately obtained the NF label which was in force at that time.

The oil companies present on the French market progressively imposed the Rieger overfill prevention device as a mandatory accessory in fuel tanks before the regulations required it.

In a context of globalisation, oil companies are systematising the fitting of this type of accessory and contribute to the international development of Self Climat which is at present the sole supplier of the overfill prevention device.

Franco-Swiss production

In 2006,  RIEGER  - following the decision of its manager, Mr Anton RIEGER - sold the company assets to SELF CLIMAT which continues the manufacture respecting the Swiss savoir-faire.

Today many of the components in the overfill prevention device still come from the canton of Soleure in Switzerland, thus perpetuating the precision in the manufacture of the product.
