“My business credo is easy – decency, it creates a sense of trust. If you believe in what you are doing, regardless of if the market is ready or not, you are bound to succeed.”
"Leading a business is not easy for anyone. Key ingredients for a successful organization are trust, setting right team dynamics, and a productive working environment. Mistakes occur in business, just like they do in life, but we do not burn bridges and continue to collaborate side by side.”
“When making choices, I ask myself – will I learn, can I make an impact, is it fun. If all three align, the magic happens. And it’s rarely in the comfort zone.”
“As a leader my ultimate goal is to create a workplace that empowers my people and business to thrive! I believe in leading by example – guiding my team through courage, hard work and fairness. It is important to me to be impartial, help others to succeed and create enjoyable moments even in the most difficult times!”
“It’s important to do right things and then do things right. Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.”
Eclectic backgrounds and varying personal interests combined to connect four young individuals in autumn of 1995. Their mutual profound appreciation for coffee brought together Andres Allikas, Tõnu Antipov and a couple who is no longer with the business. High-quality coffee, top-of-the-range format, variety, and superior taste were the start of Rickman as we know it today.
A new company was registered to welcome the dawn of a new coffee business. Its foundation was built on the provision of Lavazza coffee in various formats. The idea expanded to accommodate sales of Italian capsule machines: Gaggia and, in later years, Cimbali (1997), which was the first fully automated coffee machine in the portfolio.
The dimensions, convenience, and noise accompanying a delicious cup of coffee from JURA’s stand were breathtaking. A perfect espresso crowned with an elegant crema layer – they simply had to know more. Their enthusiasm waned upon discovering the price – three times the average salary. They decided to redirect their attention to more viable products.
The determined businessmen purchased two expensive machines with no real idea about how to market them – yet believed the potential was there. The belief was justified, and JURA in Estonia was born. They embarked on a journey involving super-premium electronics products in developing markets – a high-risk move, but one that ultimately paid off.
Our company exceeded its first million-euro turnover and started to gain recognition across the Baltic region. A new partner Silver Rits joined Rickman and helped to unlock JURA’s hidden potential in the Baltics through the retail market.
Once again, an accidental rendezvous occurred. The Seattle trade fair in Washington (Spring 2005) was when they originally met this beauty. Almost a decade later an agreement was signed with Blendtec and starting to build its presence in Baltic region.
Our goal is to make people's lives more enjoyable by offering them the most innovative brands in the field. Thermomix caught our attention in an opinion leader's article, where it was called a Tesla in the kitchen. Thorough research confirmed that Thermomix carries all our expectations and values - it is innovative, powerful, and easy to use. So we made it our mission to bring Thermomix to our customers.
