We are an efficient family-held company, originally founded 1919 in SOLINGEN by Julius Buntenbach, the grandfather of Mrs. Reinhild Mohaupt, Managing Director.
The founder of ROBUSO selected the "PRETZEL" as part of his internationally registered trade mark, with the idea based on the fact that a number of bakeries in the Burg district of Solingen turned out pretzels, a traditional speciality in high demand throughout the region and beyond.
The production of razors, blades and scissors for barbers and hairdressers dominated the production operations during the first decades of the company. It was in 1948 when Johann Pukelsheim, the son-in-law of Julius Buntenbach, joined the company and gradually adapted the production programme to meet the demands and requirements of the garment industry. This reorientation proved to be a success both at home and abroad - and a safe step into the future.
The production programme was continuously complemented to keep abreast of the markets, with priorities focussed on the requirements of industrial and professional users, namely to provide them with high-quality shears and scissors for any and all relevant applications - and all this under the motto "Original ROBUSO Quality" exclusively from one source. We are proud to state that we have designed and produced shears for use with technical textiles for well over the past 30 years.
