Tradition and innovation.

The history of our company spans four generations and is linked to the Siegerland metal industry. Founded by Robert Thomas in 1897, the company began with tool and fixture construction for the local industry. ROTHO later expanded its range to include sheet metal products for storage and transportation systems. In the 1950s, the company revolutionized the brick drying market with metal drying racks, which replaced wood and improved safety and quality in brickworks and concrete plants.
