Holding / About us
RP Handels und Service GmbH is part of the internationally operating RCPT-Group corporate family whose business area includes the distribution of automotive workshop technology and e-bikes. All core businesses are managed from the headquarters in Paternion, Austria. Another branch office is located in Gunzenhausen, Germany. Besides that, the company is supported by an additional 35 distribution partners whose network spans all across Europe. With this strategy, RCPT-Group with its three brands RP-TOOLS, ATLANIS and SLOOT-Sports, is represented throughout the European continent.
For more than a decade RCPT-Group has successfully operated in the international market with its three brands. Two of the three brands are focused on the development and distribution of products from the automotive workshop industry.
The main brand is called RP-TOOLS. Its high-quality tools and machines are aimed at industry experts whose demands in the labor-intensive everyday life are correspondingly high. ATLANIS, on the other hand, offers a cost-effective product range that is primarily suitable for amateur mechanics.
SLOOT markets high-quality electric bikes at a unique price-performance ratio. Initially active only in Austria, the core business was expanded and optimized over time to almost all European countries.
RCPT-Group was founded by the two current chief executive officers Christian Riegger and Thomas Pichler. Both of them were always interested in the car workshop scene right from the start, but they often could not find the right equipment of suitable quality.
This circumstance gave the two CEOs the incentive to work on their own improvements and to create the first two brands RP-TOOLS and ATLANIS as a result. The development of SLOOT e-bikes started about ten years later.
Continued adoptions of the e-bike transition trend in recent years made the two CEOs curious and eventually led to the production of the first SLOOT e-bike models.
The company was first established as RP Handels und Service GmbH in 2006 in Austria and later bundled together with CT Real GmbH under the umbrella company RP Immobilien und Beteiligungs GmbH. All business activites in Germany are operated by RP Handels und Service Deutschland GmbH, which also belongs to RP Immobilien und Beteiligungs GmbH.
