STRENGHTHENING COMMUNITIES BY ADVANCING MANUFACTURING SINCE 1976

CEO MESSAGE

When Reko International Group started as a small company in 1976, the manufacturing world was very different and every employee felt like family. Since then, the company has grown and manufacturing has changed over the years, but we still cherish the importance of a family atmosphere and the respect for employee’s families.

To us, manufacturing is more than just making things using machinery. It’s about saving people time by solving their problems. At Reko, we are committed to saving our customers’ time. It’s in our DNA. We are proud of our reputation for finding innovative solutions, incorporating new technology and proud to have long-term relationships with many of our customers as a result.

We are excited about the many new technologies that are creating a new era of manufacturing. Our team is ready to find the best ways to use them to best help our customers save time.

We’re still a family, at Reko, and ready and eager to develop that next innovative solution.

Steve Reko

FOUNDER MESSAGE

Our founder, Steve Reko, believed in innovation; he was always finding new and better ways to do things. His strongly established beliefs have guided Reko International Group Inc. into the present day, and have helped Reko become a top performing manufacturing operation.

A Hungarian immigrant, Steve came to Canada in 1957. Looking to move forward, towards a new life of opportunity, his entrepreneurial spirit guided him as he carried his few possessions in a small suitcase across the Atlantic Ocean. Applying his experience as a machinist, and being a natural entrepreneur, Steve started Reko with the goal of always servicing the customer. He believed in working smarter, not harder, and looked for ways to streamline complex processes and looked to technology to do so. He enjoyed helping customers, and valued the joint feeling of accomplishment that resulted from helping them bring their ideas to market.

Internally, Steve Reko believed in fostering a family-oriented culture. He felt that trust and respect were the foundation of a good business, and just as Steve valued his joint success with customers, he celebrated Reko’s success with all employees.

While we sadly lost our founder to cancer in December of 2007, his legacy and words of wisdom remain.
