Founded in 1960 as a manufacturer of plastic products (sand buckets, miniature military vehicles), the company is now one of the world's leading providers of model railways as an innovation leader. The first locomotives were produced in 1976. The models were characterized by precision and authenticity right from the start and established the company's reputation for quality early on. In addition, Roco has always thought further about model railways and stimulated the industry with innovations. Over the decades, the wagons that are not shortened in length, the more prototypical tracks with less high rail profiles or the "snag-free" close couplings should be mentioned. A milestone for the future is the cutting-edge Z21 control system, which for the first time combines the virtual and real game worlds and thus raises the play value of model railways to a completely new level. Company headquarters are in Bergheim/Salzburg. Roco has a global presence and, via Modelleisenbahn München GmbH, is a company of Modelleisenbahn Holding GmbH, which also includes the German quality manufacturer Fleischmann. Roco relies on valuable and manual work. This is the only way to create the detailed, highly reliable and functional miniatures. Comprehensive quality management with internal and external quality assurance measures ensures that Roco locomotive and wagon owners receive the best quality and can enjoy their models for a long time. Here, too, Roco is a pioneer. The Roco factory in Arad was the first factory in the model railway industry to be certified according to ISO 9001 by the German DQS GmbH.
