History

In 1920 Gottlieb Roll (1870-1941) founded an engraving and stamping business in Idar-Oberstein, a city well-known for its sophisticated jewellery industry. The master-engraver had an instinct for the requests of the local industry and also the ability to precisely realize his designs.

Roll became therefore well-known for the manufacturing of filigree metal components for the jewellery- and furniture industry. After the Second World War the company grew under the management of Richard Roll (1911-1998) into a modern business, supplying the stationary industry with metal parts for pens and pencils worldwide.

Today, run by the 3rd and 4th generation, Roll is the world leading supplier of metal components to the writing industry. We develop system solutions, technical solutions and new products in a close dialogue with our clients.
