With BRAVAT by Roman Dietsche, rational once again returns to German ownership. Established back in 1873 in Germany’s Black Forest region, the fittings and accessories specialist Roman Dietsche GmbH has acquired the shares in the Melle-based German company that was founded in 1963, as well as in the subsidiary brands regina (Austria), Rational Built-in Kitchens (U.K.) Ltd. and the young trend brand “mahlzeit by rational”. The business was previously owned by the Snaidero Group from Northern Italy. In future the rational group will operate under the name “rational einbauküchen solutions GmbH”. Janusz Palarczyk takes over as Managing Director, and Dogan Yalin becomes General Manager.
