From tradition to continuity
Over the years Riko has developed into a vertically integrated group of companies providing technical and technology-based products and services to a variety of production processes across a host of industries and business sectors.
Riko’s roots stretch back to the 19th century, when a sports and medical equipment plant was established under the name of JOR in the small Slovenian town of Ribnica, the cradle of the country’s entrepreneurship. RIKO– a Slovene acronym for “Ribnica Metal Processing Factory” – was built on these original foundations. Up until 1990 the company worked to develop agricultural machinery, tractor trailers, aircraft, municipal infrastructure, and waste management equipment, together with sophisticated, highly-flexible related systems.
With the arrival of the 1990s Riko shifted its focus from manufacturing to engineering. Our range of products and services, together with our representation of some of Europe’s most prestigious manufacturers, has made us a long-term partner for many companies and sectors, including automotive manufacturers across the former Soviet Union, who are now constantly updating their technologies and technical processes. Thanks to our experience and knowhow we have extended our area of operations to numerous markets that have recognized the need for intelligent, integral solutions, as well as the need to introduce efficient, state-of-the-art, eco-friendly technologies.
