Establishment of a sole proprietorship operating under the name of Ervin Nagy. The main profile is the production of carbonated soft drinks in 4 and then 12 flavors under the brand name TWINTO. The opportunity was generated by the outage of state-owned soft drink producers that went bankrupt as a result of the regime change. The capacity of the plant was sufficient to produce 2,400 PET bottle products in 2 liter packages per day.
After a nearly two-year state of bankruptcy (1995-96 external factors caused by the “Cola Price War”), we moved to a new factory building – including warehouses, social rooms, an office and a larger bottling space – to multiply capacity to meet the sudden surge in demand. The daily production capacity is 10,000 pieces of 2 liter PET carbonated soft drinks, the warehouse capacity is about 40-60 EUR.
Due to further demand growth, construction of a new insulated warehouse building with a high-rack system. Storage capacity has increased to EUR 160 pallet.
Construction of a new bottling plant next to the existing one. The water obtained from our own drilled well received a mineral water rating, so the bottling of Aqua Dolina mineral water also started in addition to the soft drink portfolio. The daily production capacity is 20,000 pieces of 2 liter carbonated soft drinks and / or mineral water. We won a LIDL tender for private label water supply!
The family repositioned the company: we founded R-Water Kft. Due to changes in the soft drink market, the company started to produce functional drinks, including sports drinks. At the same time, the market for low-cost products began to shrink and centralize, from which we became increasingly displaced and the focus shifted to higher value-added products, the brand is born!
The portfolio of functional drinks continues to expand, we created product family and the slogan “Health is our life goal” was born at that time. We have permanently stopped producing carbonated products and started to create our products according to the needs of consumers who follow a healthy lifestyle. The daily production capacity is 35,000 pieces of sports and / or functional vitamin drinks.
We have launched our own laboratory specializing in microbiological testing so that we can guarantee the quality of our products at all times.
The planning of R-Water kft’s largest greenfield investment has begun, in the framework of which a new bottling plant and warehouse will be built in order to serve the growing demands. We developed the Smart Vitamin product family, but with the introduction we waited for the start of the new factory building
The new factory building was completed at the beginning of the year, which allowed production to continue under more modern conditions. Our products are manufactured on a modern ULTRACLEAN system line without human contact, based on very high hygiene standards, with a capacity of up to 100,000 pieces per day. The total plant and service facility has a floor area of 2,500 sqm and the storage capacity has increased to EUR 1,800 per pallet. Not only the Smart Vitamin brand has been launched, but also the Absolute Live Lifestyle and Fit Kid product line!
The well – started year was severely stigmatized by the Covid – 19 epidemic. Better not even talk about it. But we remained positive and invested in developing webshop sales and enhancing our export activities. The results are already visible during the year. Furthermore, by the end of the year, the PRO + product family was born, with which we can become the best in the market for vitamin drinks, which has been developing tremendously ever since.
