History

imagen de los inicios de Ros Roca

Our history begins with Ferrán Ros Pijoan and Ramón Roca Sala in 1953 in Agramunt (Lleida province, Spain) more than 60 years ago. Their first enterprises focused on the buying and selling of wood and the construction of trailers, cisterns, axles, etc for the agricultural sector. In 1956 they began to fabricate waste collection equipment and in 1968 what is today’s headquarters was opened.

Since then we have evolved, grown, expanded our range of equipment, markets, we invest in R&D...In conclusion, we continue to build the multinational organization that we are today. Ramón Roca Enrich, current President of the Ros Roca group, continues to abide by the philosophy that has always moved the company: to promote a better society.

This is part of our history.
