1963
A family company
In 1963 Cornelis Rijkaart started his own company under the name of C. Rijkaart N.V. Bakkerijmachines that mainly focused on Laminator machines and Make-up production lines. His son Henk Rijkaart continued the company and expanded it, making the name ‘’Rijkaart’’ a national and international concept that is synonymous for quality and solidity.

Ronald Rijkaart now represents the third generation of Rijkaart. In the past twenty years he has ensured that the company continued to develop and innovate.

Since the beginning of 2017 the fourth generation Rijkaart is on board, his daughter Laura Rijkaart. As a result, the Rijkaart name will continue to exist and the familiar service, quality and customization will remain guaranteed.

Innovation and specializations

The development of knowledge and innovation is a continuous task for us. A task that is being carried out with joy and dedication and is fully embedded within the organization. Each customer benefits from the experience gained in previously completed commissions and advisory processes. Developments of interest for broader adoption are evolved into new standards.

Based on this background we have developed specific production lines for certain applications, such as:
Pie lines (for pie crusts), Bar lines (for muesli bars, energy bars, etc.), Hot press pizza lines, Sushi lines (for nigiri), Compact laminators (for smaller spaces)
For specialist production lines such as these, Rijkaart is the designated party to work with.
