World-class kitchen solutions. For real professionals.


Rudolf Heinz-Richter established his puppet company in 1892. Thirty years later, Ladislav Mrkvička began cobbling shoes in Kralupy nad Vltavou. Both of these entrepreneurs' companies were successful, but their development ended during the intervention of the Communist regime. This tradition, however, has since been revived. In 1994, the descendants of both entrepreneurial families, Jan Richter and Ladislav Mrkvička joined forces to establish RM Gastro. A puppeteer's passion for details and a shoemaker's awareness of his skills came together to give rise to the exceptional products that have helped modernise Czech gastronomy.

Customers showed their appreciation. In 1998, thanks to their good graces, RM Gastro opened new production facilities in Veselí nad Lužnici. One year later, they opened their first branch in Slovakia and six years later in Poland. The year 2017 was significant for RM Gastro. The production plant in Veseli nad Luznici underwent extensive reconstruction, including the extension of the production area.

Even today, the dream of the company's founders has grown to employ 280 people, with an annual turnover of 1 billion CZK, and with thousands of satisfied customers from more than 50 countries around the world.
