The 20th century is still in its infancy when Karl Langkammerer takes over the “Georg Robel File Factory” 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 optimize work on the track, ROBEL now also builds large track vehicles and rail loading trains and starts European wide distribution.
In 1989 the company premises in Munich literally reach their limits – ROBEL starts to gradually move all its divisions to the railway town of Freilassing. Since 1999, the company fully operates in Freilassing under the name of ROBEL Bahnbaumaschinen GmbH.
