ROLEC is a family enterprise

Family company with firm values

ROLEC is a living example of the particular strengths of a traditional family company.

The continued existence of ROLEC as a family-run company has the highest priority. The philosophy of our family business is to offer as many opportunities for personal development as possible. It demands personal commitment, responsibility and willingness to cooperate from each individual. This not only includes maintaining the successful tradition and personal ties. It also includes flexibility, quick decisions and responding to individual needs. Our entrepreneurial activity takes into account, in the broadest sense, the special responsibility towards our environment and society. The ROLEC style is sincere, straightforward and geared towards continuity. At ROLEC, debt and equity have always been in a solid and healthy relationship. As a result, long-term performance is more important to us than short-term gains. Efficiency, profitability, use of resources and appropriate added value are necessary to maintain the company's financial strength over the long term. They should also ensure independence from outside investors in the long term. As an independent family company, ROLEC guarantees lasting value growth.

Skilled employees at ROLEC

Our employees represent our greatest potential and clearly set us apart from the competition.

ROLEC's enclosures innovations


Together with our customers and suppliers, we develop and deliver innovative solutions.

Our high-quality enclosures ensure electronic/electrical assemblies are well protected. Selecting a ROLEC housing not only enhances visual and functional quality of the customer's product, but it also provides additional possibilities in terms of further development, design and technology. Our product and services are developed with the help of global research into today's technology fields and through communication/feedback with our international partners. We are interested in cooperations and projects to develop new business opportunities and fields. Our product innovations are geared towards the future-oriented suitablility of our housings and increased added value.

ROLEC's international partners

Suppliers and partnerships

A good supplier can become a strategic partner - a key factor in our success.

We are always interested in long-term and reliable business relationships with our suppliers. We rely on our suppliers. Accordingly, we expect quality, punctuality and reliability. Joint innovations and developments from which both sides benefit are only possible with good supplier relationships. The price-performance ratio of our suppliers must be in a healthy relationship to our long-term ideas of quality and service. Suppliers who are crucial to our business and who are just as trustworthy can become strategy partners.

Executives with role model function

Our managers have additional tasks that have to be performed.

Our management team is responsible for the motivation and development of all team members. They help to show a social, cultural and environmental awareness. All managers align their personal initiative with the overall goal and are measurable in relation to the responsibility imposed. The management team is networked nationally and internationally and each individual is accordingly mobile. Each management member contributes to the consistently positive image of the ROLEC brand - both internally and externally. Our managers form a strong team together with all employees.

As a family company, now in its second generation, we of course reflect upon the future. We would like to leave our children and grandchildren with an ecology, economic situation and social fabric that is as sustainable as possible. We are of the opinion that one cannot be had without the other. That is why at ROLEC we place environmental perspectives on the same level as social and economic ones. As a result, we constantly ask ourselves what we can do, as a manufacturer of metal and plastic products, to act as environmentally friendly as possible in our daily work.

The ROLEC block-unit power station

We invested in energy-efficient technology years ago, installing a block-unit power station at our company site in Rinteln. This block-unit generates power and heat simultaneously. The system has proven to be an ideal solution for satisfying the large demand for power and heat during the manufacture and processing of our enclosure and other products. The block-unit power plant saves us a significant amount of energy, thus providing a clear reduction in consumption costs.

Gas, water and environmental protection

The public utility companies in Rinteln meet their ecological obligations by actively promoting and implementing environment friendly technologies and consulting with their customers accordingly. One example of this is the Rinteln-Deckbergen solar park. The Rinteln public utility companies furthermore participate with other public utility companies in a green energy pool. The pool is assessed and awarded by the certification organisation TÜV NORD CERT. Moreover, they invest in certified emissions reductions projects all over the world – for sustainable protection of our planet. It’s not always about the price.


In today’s world, optimising waste management is no longer just an urgent necessity, it is also a business success factor that should not be underestimated. It makes a sustainable contribution to efficient operational procedures and profitable cost structures.

For this reason, ROLEC relies on a specialist in water and recycling management: REMONDIS. The company has a diverse range of services that covers almost all areas. The focus is on the realization of closed material cycles. Because the processing of materials and their return to the economic cycle is the best way for a sustainable future from an economic and ecological point of view.

The sustainability certificate proves the special competence of REMONDIS. This was developed based on the eco-balance according to DIN EN ISO 14040 together with the independent institute ATZ. The certificate can be used to show the savings in primary raw materials, energy and greenhouse gas emissions achieved with the treatment of waste and residues. The entire service chain – from collection of the waste to transport, sorting and processing to recycling of the respective fractions – is included in the analysis. A partner who thinks like we do.


Nowadays, optimal waste management is not only an urgent necessity, but also a success factor that should not be underestimated. It makes a lasting contribution to efficient operational processes and profitable cost structures.
