We are an efficient family-held company, originally founded
1919 in SOLINGEN by Julius Buntenbach, the grandfather of Mrs. Reinhild
Mohaupt, Managing Director.
The founder of ROBUSO selected the "PRETZEL" as part of his
internationally registered trade mark, with the idea based on the fact
that a number of bakeries in the Burg district of Solingen turned out
pretzels, a traditional speciality in high demand throughout the region
production of razors, blades and scissors for barbers and hairdressers
dominated the production operations during the first decades of the company.
It was in 1948 when Johann Pukelsheim, the son-in-law of Julius Buntenbach,
joined the company and gradually adapted the production programme to
meet the demands and requirements of the garment industry. This reorientation
proved to be a success both at home and abroad - and a safe step into
The production programme was continuously complemented to keep abreast
of the markets, with priorities focussed on the requirements of industrial
and professional users, namely to provide them with high-quality shears
and scissors for any and all relevant applications - and all this under
the motto "Original ROBUSO Quality" exclusively from one source.
We are proud to state that we have designed and produced shears for use
with technical textiles for well over the past 30 years.
The third ROBUSO-generation, namely Reinhild Mohaupt,
nee Pukelsheim, and her husband Detlef continued to run the company until
Detlef Mohaupt died in May 1999, upon which Reinhild Mohaupt successfully
assumed all managerial duties to keep the company going along the proven
and time-tested ROBUSO tradition, with Rainer Hückelhoven, a graduated
engineer and company executive, being responsible for technological research,
development and process optimization services at user level.
Concerted ROBUSO efforts have, so far, resulted in a supply range covering
manual, electro- and air-powered shears and scissors - and the provision
of allautomatic cutting solutions.
A family-held company like ours, with advantages such as a clearly
defined structural make-up, short decision-making routines and the capacity
to react spontaneously and adequately to changing market conditions,
is bound to cope successfully with all the challenges future may have
Looking forward to good and rewarding relations, ROBUSO and I are sincerely
