"We want all model railway fans to enjoy the operation and collection of vehicles as much as we do in creating these extraordinary miniature"
The ROCO values:
ROCO stands for advanced technology and is a digital pioneer in linking the virtual and real world of games (e.g. Z21 Model Railway Control).
ROCO focuses on valuable and manual work and combines high engineering expertise with the precise work of qualified employees.
The common enthusiasm for model railways, as well as the high quality promise and an extensive service offer characterise the special partnership of ROCO with its trade partners and customers.
ROCO combines a special passion from planning through the development of true to the original railway models to the production and delivery of the finished miniature models.
From the sandpit to the innovation leader
The company was founded in 1960 and initially specialized in the production of plastic products (such as sand pails, miniature military vehicles, etc.). In the meantime, ROCO has evolved into a leader in innovation and technology due to continuous developments and is one of the world's leading providers of railway models.
In 1976, the first locomotives were produced. Since the beginning of the model railway production the models were characterized by their high precision and true to the original execution. This set the company’s high quality standards from very early on.
In addition, ROCO “Modelleisenbahn” has always thought ahead of its time and has pushed and challenged the market with many innovations. Particularly noteworthy here during the last decades are the following achievements: the unrestricted in length wagons, the true to the original tracks with less high rail profiles or the "hook-free" close couplers. A milestone for the future is the state-of-the-art Z21 control system, which for the first time combines virtual and real worlds of gaming, raising the playing value of model railways to a whole new level.
The ROCO headquarters is located in Bergheim near Salzburg. The company has a global presence and is part of the Modelleisenbahn GmbH, a company of the Modelleisenbahn Holding GmbH, to which also belongs the German quality manufacturer FLEISCHMANN.
ROCO sets the highest quality standards
For ROCO, quality production plays a very central role. Strong values and manual work is considered a very important position in the company. Only in this way can the delicately detailed, extremely reliable and outstanding functional miniatures be designed. The comprehensive ROCO quality management with internally and externally applied quality assurance measures is constantly concerned that ROCO locomotive and wagon owners receive the best possible quality and enjoy their models for a long time. So in this field ROCO is a pioneer in the model railway industry. For example, the ROCO plant in Arad was the first factory in the model railway industry to be certified by the German DQS GmbH according to ISO 9001.

A company’s chronology in express train speed
For almost 60 years, ROCO model railways have inspired young and old alike. But miniature models are much more than just a hobby.
The Roco model railways bring entire generations together.
Foundation of the company, which initially specializes in the production of plastic products, such as sand buckets. Soon thereafter follows the production of the first "Roco Minitanks" (military vehicles of various armed forces).
Production of the first model railways on behalf of American companies in H0 gauge. In addition, the first scale H0 goods wagons are produced according to European models from the own development. These are particularly successful in Germany due to the high level of detailing and affordable prices.
Tool takeover by Röwa and new edition of the models, which are characterized by particular attention to detail.
Production of the first Roco locomotives true to the original models of the Deutsche Bahn (BR 110, BR 140).
