  • OUR STORY

    RICMAS International Pte. Ltd.

    RICMAS, today almost 40 years old, comes a long way since 1983 as a coffee machine company, representing the two probably most outstanding manufacturer: JURA of Switzerland and WMF Germany.

    It all started in the small town of Kota Kinabalu, on Borneo East Malaysia. RICMAS then spread all-over South-East Asia and set the Head Office in Singapore.

  • 1983

    RICMAS BORNEO SDN. BHD. was formed

    Tanjung Aru

    RICMAS Borneo was formed and the main activity was energy saving consulting services for large building. Soon after we started trading in electrical goods.

    In 1983 RICMAS takes over the servicing of coffee machines at Shangri-La Tanjung Aru in Kota Kinabalu. This is the beginning of a long journey in Coffee Machines and Coffee Beans.

    Facing substantial problems with the old machines in Shangri-La, we acquired the Agency for WMF Coffee Machines and Shangri-La Tanjung Aru was our first customer for WMF Coffee Machines.

    Soon after followed by GRAND HYATT Kota Kinabalu and many more 5-Star Hotels in Eastern Malaysia.

  • 1988

    RICMAS creates their own Coffee - Ricafé

    Ricafe

    Now having great Machines, the need came up to compliment it with Coffee Beans. We outsourced the Beans from Switzerland and named the three blends we created: ESPRESS, FINESSE and NOBLESS.

    The coffee was roasted and packed in Switzerland by Illycafe Thalwil.

  • 1989

    RICMAS open a Café - "The Café Ricafé"

    Tanjung Aru

    At that point of time, we supplied most of the 5-Star Hotels with our Ricafé. The idea was to give the wider public of Kota Kinabalu and the tourists a chance to enjoy such "European-Style" coffee.

    Besides all kind of Coffees, served in proper porcelain cups and saucers, we sold an item the "Salami-Fist-Bread", which was the big runner and attracted customers from Brunei, Labuan and Miri.

  • 1994

    RICMAS moves to Singapore

    We spread our Business Model along Sarawak, the Eastren Part of Borneo down to Kuching. The next step was Kuala Lumpur and Penang, where we opened our own Office.

    The pressure from WMF Germany was getting stronger to make us move to Singapore. We finally opened an Office in 1994 at the German Centre, where we are till today.
