ROKO was founded in 1994 as a family business. The founding partners combined their engineering and practical knowledge to build modern dental laboratory equipment fit for the 21st century. The first ROKO product was ROTOMAT - electric centrifuge for metal casting
The first device was prepared in a small shop. In the initial period, the company employed just 3 employees. The first product of the company was electric foundry ROTOMAT (initial name WR3).
THE FIRST TRADE SHOW
|In 1997 ROKO exhibited their products for the first time at the Central European Dental Show. From that point, the Company started to grow rapidly.|
|Introduction of microprocessors in the 1990’s impelled us to seek out European and American partners for implementation of the new technology. This cooperation resulted in ROKO becoming fully abreast with the latest and globally recognized products, practices and engineering solutions.|
|In 2003 ROKO presented their products for the first time at the International Dental Show in Cologne, Germany. Our products attracted a great deal of attention with consequent orders from across the world. Since then, ROKO products have been exported to over twenty countries on five continents.|
|Due to increasing demand for ROKO products, the Company moved to the new manufacturing facility to accommodate the growth in demand. The new site has an area of nearly 15000 sq ft.|
The purpose of establishing the training center was to broaden the range of services to our customers.
PROSTHETICS FOR THE 21st CENTURY
In 2006, a new training program PROSTHETICS FOR THE 21st CENTURY was initiated by ROKO and funded by the European Union. In the space of two years, ROKO trained over 900 technicians in the latest methodologies and practices in dental industry.
ROKO continued to improve its production system and customer service. Our efforts resulted in the Company being granted the prestigious ISO 9001–2000 quality certificate.
