The RVS Technology story consists of the following milestones:

1991

  • The Soviet Union collapses.
  • The research activities on all strategically less important areas cease or are "overtaken" by the private sector. The latter is what happens to the primitive form of the RVS Technology.

1994

  • A group of four people, one of which is said to have been a member of the original scientist group, joins forces in order to develop and refine the technology formula to be commercially exploitable.

1995

  • After several difficult and quarrelsome phases a company is founded and it possesses a working package of formulas since. The chosen working title of the technology is RVS standing for the Russian words "Remontno-Vosstanovitelny Sostav", meaning Repair and Restoring Compound. Also RRC was used in some English documents.

1997

  • The primitive form of commercialized RVS compound gets ready for testing. The company name "NPC Ruspromremont" is established and the first foreign distributorship contract is signed with the Ukrainian company Xado.
  • Patent application is submitted.

1999

  • The company finds developing, commercializing and globalizing the technology difficult as a Russian technology. The lack of marketing know-how is a problem. Therefore a Finnish joint venture company RVS is established in Helsinki. Finland is the gateway to the west and has an excellent reputation in terms of high tech and being a non-corrupted country.
  • The parties agree that the Russian party grants the technology and the rights of the original Russian patent to RVS as their contribution for the joint venture.
  • The first test together with Rautaruukki Oy, the biggest Finnish steel manufacturer is carried out with excellent results.

2001

  • The first commercial products are launched 2001 and during the following four years the business grows relatively fast. One of the four original Russian shareholders leaves the company.
  • The patent rights are transferred to RVS and the International Patent Application (PCT) is submitted.

2002

  • The PCT is published and the RVS Technology trademark application submitted.
  • Several tests, trials and events are initiated in Finland, Russia, Ukraine, China and Germany.

2003

  • The RVS Technology trademark is granted and registered.
  • The initiated tests and trials are completed. Results are very good without exemption.
  • RVS Technology gets public attention in a non-commercial TV program Puskuri in which an RVS treated vehicle is driven by a journalist from Helsinki to Tampere (160 km) without any engine oil under full time camera surveillance.
  • RVS appoints Rewitec GmbH to organize an RVS test for them with the leading German research institution, Fraunhofer Institute. The test results are astonishing.
  • Negotiations with the Chinese distributorship candidates start and first supplies are made.

  • The Chinese market shows very positive progress. RVS business develops fast.

2005

  • The tests and Test Report of Misrpetrol, the Test Laboratory of the National Petroleum Company in Egypt are completed with fascinating results.
  • The company of the Russian party faces domestic problems and RVS must support them. At the same time the rapidly grown exports to China and Germany plummet and pull the company into financial problems sparking the internal disputes.

2007

  • Increasing internal problems lead to changes in the management and board late 2006 and the business is finally sold in May 2007.
  • The new owner, Oy RVS Technology Ltd. is a fully Finnish-owned private limited company located in Helsinki, Finland. The technology is now reliably in Finnish hands.
  • The first and major challenges for the new company are restoration of the profitability by improving the RVS Technology business practices and by developing a more stable and safe third generation RVS compound.
  • The International Patent is finally granted.
  • Oy RVS Technology Ltd. appoints CerLub Ltd to carry out the R & D work for the new technology components required for the 3rd technology compound. Once the R & D works of the new triboceramic compound components for RVS Technology (CerLub Technology are completed, a new international patent application is submitted in September 2007.

2008

  • The new definition for the letters RVS, Regulated Variable Surface, is launched to better describe the improved properties of the third generation compound – the currently used triboceramic based compound.
  • During the autumn Oy RVS Technology Ltd. moves to the present office address.

2009

  • Having strong confidence in the 3rd generation compound we take the technology to TÜV Süd Automotive for the certified emission and fuel efficiency tests. The three vehicle test lasts one year ending in August 2010. The results are most convincing.

2010
