The company named “Carpentry Ivan Ratković” was founded on June 1st 1963 by Ivan Ratković, the father of the current owner and is located adjacent to the family house in Varaždinske Toplice. Throughout the 40 years of running his business, Ivan Ratković has established many conditions for future progress before he turned his business over to his son Miljenko after his own retirement. The company had 7 employees.
