ROBUR Company Profile
Our history commences at the beginning of the last century, in 1923, with the foundation of “Alessandro Ciceri & figli”, specialised in iron and steel die casting.
In 1938 the works moved from Erba to Sovico, dedicating activities to the fabrication of casts for cars, motorbikes, farming and electrical applications and to tools.
The Robur brand was created in the early ‘30s, to distinguish a range produced in parallel to the professional hand tools’ line, renown, since 1939, with the name “Beta Utensili”.
In the ‘70s, the rapid technological evolution, the growth in the sales of wire rope clips, the development and expansion of Beta Utensili to the leading positions of the Italian market consolidated the Robur brand and brought to the publication of the first wire rope accessories catalogue.
In 1984, in order to conform to important technological, quality and service standards, Robur moved production from Sovico and Castiglione d’Adda to a modern, designated plant in Abruzzo, inaugurating today’s manufactory and creating the company “Sigma Metallurgica”.
Over the years, the Robur range has been enriched with new items as eyebolts, stainless steel nautical accessories, hooks, webslings and special products made upon customers’ requirements.
By virtue of the constant attention to quality standards, in 1995 Robur was awarded the certification of its Quality System, in compliance with ISO 9001 reference norms.
In 2000, as an accomplishment of continuous development, the necessity of unifying the entire offer led to the inclusion of the wire rope accessories range into the Beta Utensili price list.
Robur today continues its expansion with the introduction of a considerable number of items, a renewed sales policy and an opening towards the international market, testimony of the company’s intent to pursue the evolution that has highlighted its history.
