The world needs persistent fiber. That’s where we come in.

With more than 60 years’ experience of developing fiber solutions, Roblon has obtained substantial know-how about the properties of fibers. Founded in 1957 and listed on Nasdaq Copenhagen, the Roblon brand is considered the very embodiment of endurance when it comes to enhancing fiber solutions for a wide range of industries.

High performance fiber is the key element of Roblon's DNA and it is the cornerstone of the company’s long success story. We made a name for ourselves early on using nylon fibers to make rope, later using more sophisticated fibers for numerous applications.

We are driven by development and supply of products that carry out an important societal purpose. Our most important task is to help our customers succeed whether the field is internet, telecommunication, oil and gas, wind energy or other important industries. Society depends on our products to do their job with precision and persistence. And Roblon accepts the challenge and performs.

Roblon is headquartered in Frederikshavn (Denmark) and has production facilities in Gærum (Denmark) and Hickory, North Carolina (USA).

Mission, vision, strategy and financial targets

Roblon's Mission

Roblon is a global, innovative company developing and supplying competitive high-performance fibre solutions and technologies to strategic customers who demand the highest quality, durability and safety standards.

Roblon's Vision

Roblon aims to be the preferred supplier of high-performance fibre solutions and technologies for strategic customers.

Roblon’s strategy

The Group's strategy focuses on:

  • Continually growing our sales drive targeting strategic key accounts
  • Continually strengthening our product development and expanding our product offering in close collaboration with strategic key accounts

Roblon’s financial targets

The Group’s aim is to be able to achieve the following financial ratios, assuming normal economic conditions:

  • Average annual revenue growth of at least 15%
  • Average annual EBIT margin of at least 10%
  • Average annual EPS growth of at least 15%
  • Return on invested capital (ROIC) of at least 20% before tax

The Group expects to achieve these growth targets through a combination of organic and acquisitive growth. Roblon’s financial resources are adequate to achieve this.

CSR

Corporate Social Responsibility

Roblon considers corporate social responsibility (CSR) to be a natural part of the Group’s business principles and acknowledges a responsibility for the society which we are all part of.

Roblon has established a number of key CSR policies. Our customers demand a structured, managed CSR approach, which is a natural part of Roblon’s efforts to fulfil our strategy. Roblon collaborates with customers and other stakeholders to maintain a CSR policy and introduce measures to increase the Company’s value proposition. Recently, the Group launched a strategic project to support the development of a culture that encourages all employees to think even more in terms of improvement, and a formalised structure has been set up for the Company’s improvement efforts throughout the organisation. This structure and the use of improvement boards have generated more attention to and a sense of community around the improvement efforts. It is now even easier for individual employees to make suggestions and affect their own job and working conditions on parameters as occupational health and safety, product quality, process optimisation and waste reduction.

Human rights and labour rights

Committed, competent employees are key to the consistent and increasing competitiveness of a high-tech industrial enterprise like Roblon. Consequently, a good mental and physical working environment has a high priority.

Working environment

Both Management and employees consider a good working environment at Roblon to be an important prerequisite for the Company's ability to act in a professional and proper manner towards our customers and other business partners. There is a common safety organisation in place for Roblon, structured in accordance with the relevant rules of the Danish Working Environment Act. Roblon is committed to maintaining and developing a safe and healthy working environment and, to that end, has formed a collaboration with an external occupational health and safety consultancy business.

Environment and climate

Roblon wants to be an environment-conscious company committed to ensuring an environmentally sound development through its activities, with due consideration for natural resources, statutory requirements and other relevant provisions. Roblon Industrial Fiber has been certified to ISO 14001:2015.
ISO Certificate 2017

Report on Management’s gender composition

Roblon believes that a diverse and varied staff composition, including gender composition, contributes to creating an innovative organisation and a positive working environment, which in turn helps improve competitiveness and profitability.
