How did it all start?

At the beginning of 2014, the demand for grill ovens was increasing. Customers came to us because they wanted a grill oven, but the choice was rather limited and not suited to their purpose. We thought the project had great potential and we immediately started researching the field and made our first product. It turned out very well, so we started marketing it and it just took off from there.


The Kopa grill oven is a significantly more complex product than the it first appeared. We also put great effort into the right design and came up with a great solution with our industrial designer. We wanted the oven to be functional and robust, but still be beautiful, and we succeeded! The oven can be even placed in plain view of customers and the restaurant's theme can built around the oven. Our customers are extremely pleased with the look and functionality of the oven, which makes us really proud of our product.

When we received our first major order, the customer was absolutely thrilled with the product, which created new opportunities and opened new markets for us.

Within the next five years, Kops pro wants to evolve from a company manufacturing component housings into a company manufacturing products under our own brand - mostly Kopa Grill Ovens!


It took us only 18 months to enter the following markets:
