History
 
Maresto Technological Group started off as a department of professional equipment in one of the largest home appliances and electronics chains in the country.
Trade House «Byttehnika» opened its first store on the 5th of March, 1992.
Few years later «Byttehnika» had grown into a nationwide chain with more than 50 stores all over Ukraine. The brand name became a symbol of comfortable shopping and high quality appliances.
 
The department of professional equipment had experienced a substantial demand for it's products and in 1999 was allocated into an independent structure.
Using established business ties, experience of professional staff and extensive knowledge in foreign trade, «Maresto» had immediately occupied a niche market of professional appliances for HoReCa.
 
Over the years of its successful operation, «Maresto» had evolved into the largest importer and nationwide distributor of professional equipment for HoReCa, retail and food production industries. At the moment there are four main channels of distribution: wholesale, turnkey projects, retail and Internet sales. Maresto Technological Group consists of 6 show rooms in major Ukrainian cities, 2 fully equipped demonstration kitchens, 3 conveniently located warehouses, 3 dedicated websites and an AfterSales division with more than 50 technicians. «Maresto» has already supplied and installed equipment for over 2000 turnkey projects, as well as it has more than 200 active dealers and 1300 internet visitors on the daily basis.
 
Nowadays «Maresto» is a well know brand which is associated with highly professional personnel and the exceptional quality of the equipment supplied.

The market of technological equipment of Ukraine has a huge potential.
