The stoves we want to sell in three years must be developed and designed today. This is why we have 14 people working constantly in our own research and testing laboratory to develop new products and enhancements. In addition, research and development at RIKA always focuses on sustainability. Wood is a valuable resource. To us, using it efficiently is as much a part of sustainability as constantly working to reduce emissions.
“We’re working today on the stoves of tomorrow!”
Manuel Kössl, Technology & Innovation Manager
“Top quality for you.”
Reinhard Trippacher, Peter Schwarzenbrunner
In 1989 we became the very first company to introduce pellet stove technology to Europe and are still the market leader in this sector today.
Our stoves are predominantly made in Austria. In our two production plants in Micheldorf and Adlwang, around 240 employees manufacture high quality pellet and woodburning stoves with the aid of highly advanced machinery. However, the final assembly and subsequent quality inspection are still performed manually by our experts.
