The world needs persistent fiber. That’s where we come in.
With more than 60 years’ experience of developing fiber solutions, Roblon has obtained substantial know-how about the properties of fibers. Founded in 1957 and listed on Nasdaq Copenhagen, the Roblon brand is considered the very embodiment of endurance when it comes to enhancing fiber solutions for a wide range of industries.
High performance fiber is the key element of Roblon's DNA and it is the cornerstone of the company’s long success story. We made a name for ourselves early on using nylon fibers to make rope, later using more sophisticated fibers for numerous applications.
We are driven by development and supply of products that carry out an important societal purpose. Our most important task is to help our customers succeed whether the field is internet, telecommunication, oil and gas, wind energy or other important industries. Society depends on our products to do their job with precision and persistence. And Roblon accepts the challenge and performs.
Roblon is headquartered in Frederikshavn (Denmark) and has production facilities in Gærum (Denmark), Granite Falls, North Carolina (USA) and Žďár nad Sázavou (Czech Republic).
