Taking respon­si­bi­li­ty for the future

Manage­ment Team

Our DNA

We are Von Roll

Our work has stood the test of time for near­ly two cen­tu­ries.

We’­re an indus­try lea­der, tech­no­lo­gy cham­pion and
glo­bal play­er. A pioneer with a hands-on approach.

Speed mat­ters to us. While other com­pa­nies talk
a good game, we play it. Accep­t­ing risks and
over­co­m­ing obsta­cles.

High com­mit­ment and per­so­nal respon­si­bi­li­ty are
the foun­da­ti­on of our work. That puts the busi­ness
in ever­y­bo­dy’s hands.
