Rettig Heating Sp.zo.o. celebrates its 15th anniversary
It is already 15 years since Rettig Heating Sp.zo.o. came into operation in Poland. MD Franciszek Plaskura recounts the story.
On 1 March 1993, when the business was started, the company only had two old Schlatter production lines and a powder-painting line. That year, the turnover amounted to €1.76 million.

and new production and painting lines were installed.
Today, the turnover exceeds €112 million. Because of the fact that both productivity and sales volume constantly increase, the company has been almost from the beginning one of the most dynamically developing and most valuable in Poland. For example, in the rating conducted by the Financial Magazine in 1999, Rettig Heating Sp.zo.o. was ranked 45th considering market value. That meant that the company’s market value grew 80

It’s not even possible to mention in this short article all the prizes that the company has been awarded by the president, the prime minister and many financial institutions within these 15 years. After installing and starting the production on our new, ultra-modern production line in late 2007, the company is now probably the biggest radiator producer in Europe.
