30 Years of Successful Work
ROMOTOP, Leading European Manufacturer
of Fireplace Stoves and Inserts
Over a million homes around the world have Romotop products in them, which serves proof of
the company’s hard work and dedication. Romotop’s history dates 30 years back to 1992. Its
headquarters and manufacturing facility are located in the Czech Republic - in the Moravian-Sileasian
town of Suchdol nad Odrou. Their fireplace stoves and inserts attract customers through their
alluring design, high build quality and innovative solutions of wood burning.
The founder’s original vision
The purely bred Czech company
ROMOTOP, spol. s.r.o. was founded in
the summer of 1992 thanks to the vision
and courage of a man named Josef Hein,
who sensed a great potential in the field
of fireplace stoves. He got to work right
away with a group comprised of other
enthusiasts. It was a time when the
modern conception of fireplace stoves was
only starting to blossom. From the very
beginning Romotop focused itself on
the western market. Soon enough their
fireplace stove designs began to gain
traction in the Czech Republic, then
Slovakia, followed by Poland and many
others. Currently, the company supplies
their products to over 50 countries globally.
‘We love technology and
and, at this
point, since we are among our
market’s leaders in the European
market, we always try to push
our field of fireplace stoves and
inserts to the next level,’ Ing.
Josef Hein, founder and owner
of Romotop, said.
The quaint workshop in Suchdol nad
Odrou with a limited production capacity
quickly developed into a business that
makes use of modern technologies, and
has great construction and business
potential. The company also maintains
a strong ethic of constantly perfecting
their products and providing them at
acceptable prices. Products that leave the
facility therefore have an excellent quality
to price to performance ratio, which
the customers are very fond of. Romotop
is now among the leaders in its field in
the European market.
Our customers mainly expect
to be able to rely on their
fireplace or stove whenever
they need it, no matter what.
Romotop as an innovator
Over the years, an innovative focused
team was formed within the company,
and it was their job to come up with
new practical solutions. They focus
on designing combustion chambers,
important functional components of the
fireplace stoves. All of their designs aim
to stand above the competition while still
meeting strict ecological limits. Customers
of the modern day not only look for
products that are aesthetically pleasing,
but also ones that are highly functional
and provide them with the certainty that,
no matter what happens, their fireplace or
stove can always be relied on.
Ecology is more than
just a topic to discuss for
producers in the Moravian-Silesian Region, for us, it is
a commitment. The stoves
and fireplaces made by
Romotop meet all of the strict
and norms set by the EU.
By doing this, they help
with the preservation of
our environment and aid in
the promotion and usage of
natural energy sources.
Well earned awards
Romotop fireplace stoves received
a series of significant awards. One of
their biggest achievements was receiving
the platinum award in the USA based
ADEX competition. Another one of their
accomplishments was earning second place
in the prestigious Product – technologies of
the year 2012 competition for their design
and the technologies they made use of.
Romotop also holds the Czech Superbrands
award for the years of 2016, 2019 and 2020.
Establishment of traditional ceramic tile
The company’s development eventually
led to their expansion towards providing
fireplace stoves featuring ceramic tiles.
Soon after that the company got the idea
to establish their own traditional brand of
ceramic tiles, under the name HEIN. Ever
since then, all Romotop fireplace stoves
that feature a ceramic lining make use of
tiles made by their own sister company.
The Heipark Tošovice sports resort
Ing. Josef Hein is a passionate skier, and
opening his own ski slope that would be
close to his house was a dream of his for
a long time. Mr. Hein therefore eventually
decided to go through with this dream
and began constructing a small ski resort
near his place of residence. The originally
modest plan, however, soon developed
into an entire winter sports resort. Due
to a constant influx of new ideas and
nonstop development, Heipark now also
features sports activities, entertainment
and relaxation options for any season.
The resort is nestled in a valley among the
hilltops of Odry, which further adds to the
experience making it a perfect place for
families with children, school trips, as well
as company and private events.
