Where we come from
The 20th century is still in its infancy when Karl Langkammerer takes over the “Georg Robel File Factory” in Munich and starts to manufacture hand-operated track construction machines.
His success encourages him in his vision for track construction: Over the decades, “to robel” becomes synonymous with the secure screw connection between track and sleeper.
The economic boom of the 1950s brings about a considerable change in size: Driven by the idea to optimise work on the track, ROBEL builds track vehicles, followed by rail loading trains a bit later and sets initial steps beyond the country borders.
In 1989 the company premises in Munich literally reaches its limits - ROBEL starts to gradually move all its company divisions to the railway town of Freilassing. Ever since, ROBEL Bahnbaumaschinen GmbH has been delivering rail construction machines all over the world and, as the newest development, started business in America in June 2019.
