  • History


The history of Roberlo begins in 1968 as a personal project of Llorenç Juher, who today would be defined as an entrepreneur who designed and carried out his own project.

Right from the start the company has been characterised by its constant quest for innovation, progressive improvements of products and manufacturing methods, and constant adaptation to environmental requirements.

Our customer’s confidence in our products and our international vocation have led to a presence in over 100 countries around the world and have made us one of the leading European manufacturers of chemical products.

Being the leading company in the production of lightweight fillers or the first to use dual component cartridges in the car refinishing market are just two examples of how we have managed to become a benchmark in our sector.

Our drive for growth has not only led us to explore new countries but also new business sectors. As a result of that, is that today Roberlo is manufacturing and marketing products in such diverse areas as the automotive, construction, industrial, nautical and DIY sectors.

In short, our history has been defined by our constant investment in technology, internationalization and uninterrupted growth. Feel free to take a look at the company’s progress in the timeline below.
