Founded more than 60 years ago, family business RIKA Innovative Ofentechnik GmbH has accumulated a myriad of expertise. According to their motto,‘The fire of Austria’, the company produces wood burning, pellet and combi stoves, all of them entirely made in Austria. Crackling logs or silently burning off, adding the wood by hand or take advantage of fully automated control – RIKA offers the right solution for every desire. “Customers mainly appreciate four aspects of RIKA ovens: The outstanding design, the innovative strength and functionality, the excellent customer service and RIKA's overall good reputation,” Karl Riener, founder and CEO of RIKA, explains.
Sustainability lies at the heart of RIKA's products and in 2013 RIKA scooped the Energy Globe Upper Austria award thanks to its unparalleled product quality. However, RIKA does not rest on its laurels. An efficient use of wood is equally important to them as to further reduce the emissions of their ovens. Their technology Rikatronic4, for instance, offers pinpoint firing, thereby decreasing wood consumption by 50 per cent. With RIKA's Warm App one can even control the oven on the move. Available at more than 700 partners across Europe, customers are warmly welcome to take a closer look at RIKA's quality ovens. www.rika.at
