About us

Since 1945 GROB has stood for:

  • Speed
  • Reliability
  • Innovative force

In 1974 our company significantly changed the market – and consequently GROB too, of course – with the cubic linear drive. Apart from these three main features there is a lot more to say about our company. If you want to learn more, just call us or make an appointment to visit us.
We are at your service at all times.

In addition to our short delivery times we have a special EXPRESS SERVICE for "customers in need".

Customer satisfaction is our prime concern

To achieve that we have to give top priority to our employees, because only satisfied employees can manufacture good products or provide our customers with individual and expert advice and support.

Your tailor-made solutions are elaborated by well-trained and highly motivated employees. Apart from our employees, we devote our attention to the environment.

For us, the goal of sustainability is in the interests of our children and later generations.

When developing innovative products we take into consideration our customers’ requirements for new and smaller designs, narrower tolerances, environmentally-friendly materials and less expensive components and assemblies.

That leads almost automatically to a constant expansion of our product range.

For complex applications we offer our customers all-in-one solutions within the scope of the catalogue parts and assist the customer.
